⚡ 4 Best Glute Activation Exercises

What is glute activation?

Glute activation refers to a series of exercises to get your gluteal muscles ‘fired up’ before a leg workout.

Why is glute activation important?

Do you spend a lot of time sitting down at work, at home, or in the car? If the answer is yes, then your glute muscles need to be ‘fired up’ before they can execute any movement efficiently.  
If your glute muscles are not properly ‘fired up’, you will use a more dominant muscle group to perform the exercise, resulting in muscle imbalance, which can lead to injuries.
Weak glutes can also result to poor posture and lower back pain.
