Why Sitting Shuts Down Your Glutes

Did you know when you sit your glutes actually shut down? Your glutes impact your hip movement, pelvic rotation and pelvic stability.

When you sit for long periods of time (especially with poor posture) you hip flexors tighten up and prevent the activation of your glutes.  This can lead to issues with your pelvis and chronic back pain as well as pain in other parts of the body.

Maintaining strong glutes even with simple things like getting up periodically throughout the day.  Adding workouts that include pilates, Barre workouts and resistance bands can also strengthen those glutes even more.
