Fire Those Glutes!
August 6, 2015
Tiger Woods dropped out of the Farmers’ Insurance Open in February citing problems with his back. During his press conference, Tiger said that the weather delay led his gluteal (butt) muscles to shut down, and he was not able to “activate the glutes” so his lower back tightened up.
Elite athletes can struggle with low back pain as well. The gluteal muscles help steady the spine during twisting movements like a golf swing. Along with strengthening the back muscles, a program designed to stretch and strengthen the gluteal muscles can lower the chances of getting low back pain.
SimpleTherapy offers programs to steady the back and strengthen the glutes to get you back swinging for the fences. Hit them long!
