Glutes - quite often get forgotten about!
Strengthening your glutes can help improve posture, hip stability and is essential for athletic performance and to decrease your risk of injury. (especially lower back)
We highly recommend doing some glute activation exercises before squatting, deadlifts, running or any other leg specific exercise.
If you're having lower back, or hamstring/groin issues - there is a strong possibilty it could be stemming from weak glutes.
The #1 Glute Killer - desk jobs! If you're leaving your desk and heading for the gym, be sure to activate your glutes before training as they will of been dormant most of the day!
