Standing Band Hip Extensions

This exercise helps you build a solid and clean hip hinge pattern and helps to get your glutes active throughout.

Glutes that don’t work during Deadlifts and Squats is a common issue, so if this is something you have problems with, or if you just want to ensure you’re engaging the most important muscle group for these movements, try this exercise out.

Do this as part of your warmup, or right before Squats or Deadlifts to activate your glutes.

One thing that will limit your ability to activate your glutes is tight hip flexors.

Tight hip flexors cause reciprocal inhibition of the glutes, which basically means that it’s harder to fire your glutes until you release them.

If you have this issue, you need to fix it, otherwise you’ll suffer from under-active glutes and all of the problems associated including knee pain, low back pain and decreased strength.
