If you sit much of the day, you may have weak glutes, tight hamstrings and tight hip flexors. Use this glute activation program to get your backside firing properly during exercise.

To maximize the proper involvement of your glutes, perform this basic glute activation routine as the first part of your warm up, before your workouts, or after sitting for a long time.
