Having strong gluteus muscles are important for your body’s overall strength including stabilizing your core muscles and knees. Strong Glutes also prevent muscle imbalances which can impair mobility.

For many individuals glute muscles remain “inactive.” This means the muscles are weak and your body is relying on other parts to take over physical movements.

Performing Glute activation exercises before exercising (especially on a leg focused workout) helps “wake up” the muscles so you can then begin to strengthen them properly and avoid having other potentially stronger muscles take over your movements.

Exercises to try on your own to activate glutes:

Side Donkey Kicks: Down on hands lining hands up under shoulders and knees under hips, extend one leg straight out beside you. Working with your body’s natural range of motion, lift your leg up then slowly lower back down to floor before repeating the movement. Perform 3 sets at 10-15 reps per side.

Bent Knee Donkey Kick: Down on hands lining hands up under shoulders and knees under hips, keep knee bent and flex your foot, lift your knee to hip level. Lower knee back down and repeat the movement. Perform 3 sets at 10-15 reps per side.

Hip Thrust: Lie on your back and line your feet up under knees. Keeping shoulders and feet against floor press your hips up (raising hips as evenly as you can.) Squeeze your butt gently at the top of the movement. Lower hips back down slowly and as evenly as possible. Perform 3 sets at 10-15 reps per side.

Try these exercises before your next leg work out and optimize the results of the one of the most critical muscle groups in your body.

Stephanie’s Journey

Growing up I struggled with accepting myself, physically and emotionally. From a young age I remember being self-conscious about my body and lacked confidence in myself in almost every other aspect of my life. In school, I was smart and played sports, but I never really found my place to “fit” in high school. It wasn’t until I graduated, met my now fiancé, and became a member of the Fittwell team, that I truly saw value in myself.

I had been a member at Fittwell on and off for years. I attended the aerobic classes with my mom but never had an interest in lifting weights, at all. After a summer of consistently attending classes, I was offered a part time job working the front desk. With that came a personal training session and exercise plan tailored to me!

Fast forward 5 years and I can honestly say I am the best version of me that I have ever been, but the journey hasn’t been linear. Since that first weight training program I have gained muscle mass, lost body fat, competed in a fitness competition, fell in love with my body, learned an insane amount about fitness and nutrition, and gained the confidence I have always lacked. I’ve also gained weight, went through increased periods of anxiety, struggled with my relationship with food, hated my body, and felt more lost than ever.

I’ve learned so much since I became invested in my own health, not only about the concepts of fitness and nutrition, but also about myself. I don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t gotten that front desk reception job at Fittwell. Becoming a part of the team and engulfing myself in the fitness industry allowed me to change my lifestyle and to start viewing myself with some respect and self-admiration.

Thanks, Fittwell!
