Wake up your sleepy glutes. It’s not just about the booty gains for the Instagram. The glutes are incredibly important and have a huge role to play, including
🔸providing power for big compound lifts like squats and deadlifts
🔸preventing lower back pain
This is why I want to show you some basic exercises i suggest you do everyday to fire up your glutes and get them working as they should. Think about it, how long are the majority of us are sitting down for, resulting in our glutes to be come inactive. These will help you move better, feel better, protect your knees and improve your training performance
The main reason for underactive glutes or “glute amnesia” is due to sedentary lifestyle. Even people that go to the gym everyday and fitness enthusiasts, if they are guilty of sitting down for the remainder of the day, then they are simply not using their glutes. Remember the old saying – if you don’t use it, you lose it. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happens to your glutes.
