XTERRA Connect Live: Hip and Glute Activation Exercises with Ben Eitleberg
XTERRA Coach Ben Eitelberg (Fitness Locker) helps us unlock our hips and activate our glutes through simple movements. #xterraplanet #xterraconnectPosted by XTERRA on Sunday, September 6, 2020
“Too much sitting effectively ‘switches off’ gluteal muscles and functional movement exercises are the best thing to counter this,” Eitelberg explains. “The simple yet effective workout routine we’ll do on Sunday will help you better activate your glutes and result in improved mobility and strength.”
Eitelberg, who has been practicing the art of balancing an athletic life with a corporate career for more than 20 years, knows first-hand the benefits of glute strength.
"Poorly functioning gluteal muscles are one of the leading causes of running injuries, so developing an easy to practice glute-and-hip strengthening routine is essential for athletes who spend big blocks of their time in a chair at work,” he said.
