lazy glutes?

Postby ultraslacker » Sun Jan 10, 2016 1:21 pm

Mini-T posted this link on her facebook and I wanted to share it here too because it's something that a lot of runners deal with (myself included).

Lots of good info:

Also, I went looking for more glute-activation exercises and found this page too:

I'm going to start working on this every day (or... close to that ;) and hopefully it will help my hip issues!

Wow good timing. I just took a workshop yesterday about how recruiting your glutes when running can help to prevent many of the usual running injuries, particularly knee issues. I was just going to google some glute exercises.
