Our first video aims to give you the basics, starting with glute activation and strength, this can begin by completing both ‘fire hydrants’ and ‘donkey kicks’. It is important to understand the basics of these exercises and what they are trying to achieve.
The reason why we at MOC put an emphasis on activating the glutes is that by having strong and active glutes you evenly spread the pressure on the muscles at the back of your leg and lower back (glutes, hamstrings, calves, erector spinae muscles and obliques).
By developing these muscles, the gluteal group we reduce the chance of hamstring strains, gluteal tendon injuries and general low back injuries as well improving your ability to perform in the way of running quicker and jumping higher. (The Hips don’t lie!)
