Gluteus Maximus Stretch

In the video above, I spend a couple of minutes demonstrating my favourite stretch to target glute max. The feeling of tightness in glute max is not to be confused with the buttock pain of piriformis syndrome or high hamstring tendinopathy.

  1. Effective use of a training diary. Listing everything from run stats to the details about which strength and cross training perfomed. Include the stretch and foam roller routines and why and what it is that you hope to acheive by doing them.

  2. Hi, I just wonder about stretching. You say to keep the stretch for 40-60 seconds. I have read that dynamic stretching (3-4 sec.10-12 reps with rest between) is more efficient than static stretching. What is your take on that? Thanks!
