Running with weak Gluts? Get your Gluts Activated and your Hamstrings quieter with these big running exercises!
Fire up your gluts. These help stabilise your pelvis, lower back, hips and sacroiliac joints while running. These muscles are commonly weak in runners due to hamstring dominance and underuse of the all important Gluteus Maximus (your butt!).

Get this stretch into your routine to quieten and lengthen your hip flexors! What will this do for you? It will lengthen your running stride, make it easier to run and help your all important gluts to fire!
