💥THE MOVEMENT MINUTE💥 EP 6: Squat/Deadlift Priming Drill

30 Mar , 2019  

In this episode we touch on the Gluteus Medius, a muscle responsible for hip abduction, internal or medial rotation and lateral stability of the hip.

I often see people “warming up” or working this muscle in isolation in efforts to aid with “knees out” in the squat or or deadlifts, however only training the muscle activation of the glute med is not considering the secondary or tertiary role or the full function of that muscle.

@brogansamuelwilliams – 💥The Movement Minute💥with @powerliftingmotivation – Ep 6 Squat/Deadlift Priming Drill ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ – In this episode we touch on the Gluteus Medius, a muscle responsible for hip abduction, internal or medial rotation and lateral stability of the hip. I often see people “warming up” or working this muscle in isolation in efforts to aid with “knees out” in the squat or or deadlifts, however only training the muscle activation of the glute med is not considering the secondary or tertiary role or the full function of that muscle. – Because it is not only responsible for hip abduction but internal rotation, blindly training this muscle in isolation could very well make the problem worse that you are trying to fix! (Glute med is an internal rotator – tight or dysfunctional internal rotators can inhibit hip external rotation or abduction aka “knees out” in the squat). – My answer… as touched on in Ep 5, train the Glute Med in the function you require it when standing on two feet and squatting or deadlifting. But today we explore another great drill, a replacement for your crab walks. By including this drill we are incorperating a powerful hip extensor and external rotator, the Glute Max which is also essential for hip control and stability during lifting. – Instagram.com: BroganSamuelWilliams FREE MOBILITY SCRIPT: Strength-Prescription.com – ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖⬇️ ✖️POWERLIFTER @brogansamuelwilliams ✖️COACH at @STRENGTHPRESCRIPTION ✖️WRITER @powerliftingmotivation ✖️YOUTUBE.COM/BroganSamuelWilliams SPONSORS: ✖️ @strongheldnz #StrongheldNZ ✖️ @raiseys 10% OFF CODE: BSW ✖️ @bk_gym24hr ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
