Glutes workshop: Why are they so important?
There are different glutes; three to be exact:
• gluteus maximus,
• gluteus medius, and
• gluteus minimus.
Together, these muscles are accountable for hip extension, internal rotation, and abduction of the hip.
The glute medius and minimus work together to encourage hip abduction and prevent hip adduction. These muscle come in most handy when needing to balance on one leg, where controlling the motion of the pelvis on the femur is of the utmost importance.
Strong glutes are important for proper pelvic alignment, momentum during running, and even single leg stance support. Strong glutes also help to support the lower back during lifting motions, and prevent knee injuries during lifting and running exercises.
Strengthening the glutes is a great way to help rehab the hips, knees, and lower back, and working on lower-body strength can also help to keep us mobile and agile as we get older. We will cover quite a few exercises in the workshop, but don’t feel overwhelmed, we have a lifetime to work on these movements.
While some people might be able to master certain movements very quickly, others might need to practice one sequence of movements for a few months. The important thing is to do what feels right for your body.
