Which is something we desperately need when it comes to our glutes.
When it comes to our glutes, we often don't think about whether or not they are working. We just go through the motions and repeat movements without much thought.
We squat. We deadlift. Heck we even run, but we never think about whether or not our glutes are working.
We sort of just ASSUME they are working.
But because of our modern lifestyle, they often AREN'T working. Because our hips are tight, our glutes are often inactive.
Compound moves aren't enough because they don't let us build that mind-body connection and really focus on the glutes working. They allow other muscles, like our quads, hamstrings...even our low backs to take over.
That is why we need to include Glute Activation Moves as often as possible.
Glute Activation Exercises will isolate our glutes and help us get them working correctly as we build our mind-body connection to make sure our glutes actually work during compound moves, like squats and deadlifts.
These Activation Exercises will also help improve our hip mobility and hip extension AKA unlock our hips!
They can help create core stability so that we can actually loosen muscles that feel tight and get everything engaging and working correctly together to prevent injury and build a sexy, strong butt that not only helps us lift more, but also run faster for LONGER.
And the best part is, these moves require little to no equipment and can strengthen and tone our glutes better even sometimes than heavy weights!
