Glute Activation Exercise for Stronger Running

Free Download: Glute Activation & Hip Mobility Routine [PDF]

In the video above, I demonstrate one of my favourite glute activation and strengthening exercises for stronger running.

I’m all for being efficient with the limited time many of us have for the various complimentary exercises that keep us running injury-free, and this exercise fits well with that philosophy. This resistance band drill targets both the gluteus maximus and gluteus medius muscles at once, providing great bang for the buck!

If you’re interested in learning more about the specific functions of the individual gluteal muscles, check this video out: Understanding the Gluteal Muscles

Let me know how you get on with this one 😀

  • I’m brand new to your website and videos, but planning to spend more time on it. What is the music at the end of the glute activation (bridge + resistance bands) video? I recognise it and sure I have it, but can’t remember what it is…

    Thanks!
