The glutes are the powerhouse of the lower body, designed to be powerful to produce true base force for the legs and torso. Weak glutes can lead to a ton of red flags 🚩 such as :
❌ Increased risk of lower body injury
❌ Poor posture
❌ Bad running form
❌ Poor balance
❌ Diminished power and strength
The glutes should be one of your most frequently trained muscle groups. And I’m not just talking squats and deadlifts. You need isolated glute work: bridges, side steps, clams, leg extensions, glute raises. The combination of strength work (squats, deadlifts, lunges) and isolated glute work will build strong and powerful glutes, which in return will:
✅ Reduce risk of low body injury
✅ Increase lower body strength & power
✅ Improve balance
✅ Improve posture and more!
Check in on these 4 red flags for weak glutes and determine where you stand. Chances are your glutes need some more work. Posterior chain training can be done several times a week. Simply add them to any training day, 1-3 exercises is all you’ll need to make a REAL difference.
