How to Activate Your Glutes with Dominant Quads Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest by Tay Gabbidon | Sep 9, 2019 | Blog, Exercises, Exercises - Legs, Exercises - Unique, Science | 0 comments There are quite a few biomechanical issues that could prevent a person from squatting ass-to-the-grass. In some cases, the anatomy of the bones in a person’s legs (femur and tibia) can play a major role, but even those people should be able to squat low enough to get their legs just below a 90° angle, at least. If you are not getting lower than 90° while squatting you will not be using your glutes at all. In other words, you’re cheating yourself!Assuming that you are among the most common groups of gym goers, and that your femur and tibia bones arearound about the same length, you will have to use some crafty techniques in order to bring your posterior muscles back out of their slumber if they have been hibernating. Dominant quadriceps can stop you from targeting and accessing these muscle fibres. Decline hip thrusters are great for glute activation. As explained in the vid, this exercise is a straight forward way to hit glutes while excluding quads. This move also works for people who have to overextend their lower backs in order to get all the way down, or fall victim to a combination of both. 👌🏾🔥👌🏾🔥👌🏾🔥 Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
