4 Signs you’re neglecting your glutes when you squat:
1- The Butt Wink- The bottom position of the squat when the pelvis rotates and hips roll under the body, rounding the lower back into flexion and making it impossible to reload the posterior chain.
2- Stripper Style-Your torso should remain vertical on the way out of the hole of the squat. Hips are rising first and your trunk is leaning excessively forward.
3- The Good Morning- If the stripper style squat has occurred, the good morning is the following move used to reach hip extension.
4- Buckling Knees- Advanced lifters might get away with a “valgus twitch,” but most squatters should avoid the knees caving in. Often times, this buckling is caused by weak glutes paired with over-engaged hip flexors.
What to do next? Grab one of our new mini hip circle bands and do several single leg glute bridges, monsters walks, wall squats, and clams. Rid yourself of these “symptoms,” and you’ll be on your way to breaking a PR,,,and perhaps the internet!
