This 5 day pilot study carried out in partnership with Exercising Health, shows how you can increase the activation of the gluteus in the squat exercise by up to almost 40% in only 5 days of doing hip flexor stretches.
By stretching the hip flexors, it allows the glutes to extend the hips without running into a wall of tightness from the opposite side– a phenomenon know as altered reciprocal inhibition.
Check out the video below which demonstrates how beneficial it is to include some form of regular hip flexor stretching into ones daily routine, especially before doing glute strength workouts.
Gluteus are the biggest muscles we have, and mostly not performing when they should. With Mbody3 kit Legs you can optimize your gluteus exercises, and see how effective hip flexor stretching can be.
