Video: How to activate the glutes using Be Activated

How important are your glutes? They give you balance and core strength, helping you run with speed and stamina when the competition starts. But only if they’re activated.

In this video, I’ll show you the third part of a simple Zone 1 activation. We’ve already learned diaphragmatic breathing and activated the psoas. Here’s how to unlock the power of the glutes using 4 simple pressure points.

  1. Hi Dr. Tom-
    Just watched this video of you activating Julian and I think my psoas is performing better just from watching the video!!!

    I haven’t talked to Yaman since she started dancing again (yesterday). I should connect with her tonight for an update. The PT folks were thinking that her ‘dead shoes’ may have caused some overextension which may have stretched or strained the muscle on the top of the foot.

    Thanks for returning my call last week. It really meant a lot to me.
    Warmly – Linda Durack

After investigating the SAT process, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Tom. Looking back, I was skeptical for sure, but was willing to try anything for the sake of improvement. I distinctly remember the muscle-testing results before activation, and then seeing them after. Immediately after activation, I felt loose. There was no tightness, and I felt peaceful after “belly breathing.” The next day we had an invitational race, and I felt the best and was the most focused during that race. I ended up finishing 5th, right behind some of the nation’s best runners, 7 seconds off my personal best. I became a believer as the results were seen immediately for me!
