Don’t ghost your glutes!
Your glutes are necessary for proper pelvic alignment, propulsion during running, and provide single leg stance support – all necessary for peak performance and overall back comfort.
When strong, your glutes help support the lower back during lifting movements and prevent knee injuries. That’s right, it’s not just healthy quads that build pain free knees.
No tricks. Top 3 reasons to treat your booty.
1. Reduce and prevent back pain.
Strong glutes are essential for low back health since they assist with pelvic control and thoracic movement. The load that the back normally takes on can be transferred to the glutes, resulting in relief for the back.
2. Reduce and prevent knee pain.
Having strong glutes that stabilize the pelvis/hips can prevent excessive medial rotation of the femur, which can create lateral patellar tracking, a common cause of knee pain.
3. Increase athletic performance.
The glute max is one of the largest and strongest muscles in the body. It has a lot of influence on the explosive nature of athletic performance (acceleration, jumping, and other power moves). If you are not training your glutes properly, you will certainly find yourself less efficient than your competitors.
