Step Ups for Glute Strength

Kristen talks about how to use Step Ups as a progression option from glute activations exercise in order to build hip stability and strength:

1. Bracing technique, tuck tailbone slightly, maintain neutral spine
2. Put weight in heel to better recruit the glute muscle
3. Lean forward sightly, hinging at the hips, pushing butt back
4. Don’t let knee cave inward or forward passed toe. Try to keep shin perpendicular to floor.
5. Don’t push off with back leg to cheat
6. Step up and down slowly to mentally concentrate on engaging the glute as prime mover
