What is Glute Activation? By Luzabethh Lopez
Glute activation is an exercise that you would do prior to starting your leg workout or cardio to activate or ‘turn on’ your glute muscles and get them ready for the workout. By pre-activating your glutes using small slow isolated movements, you’ll be more likely to use the glute muscles for the workout. When you do not activate and do muscle release exercises prior to a leg day, often you will compensate and end up using extra quadriceps, low back, hamstring and so on in place of the glutes. This is why we start all leg days and cardio sessions with glute activation.
