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

I was a former collegiate and professional hockey player. During my career I suffered 3 concussions in 9 months. Despite resting and allowing ample time for normal recovery, I continued to have tightness in my neck, headaches, and eyesight issues. Shortness of breath was a common occurrence. My family and friends even noticed a difference in my behavior and a decrease in my level of sharpness. When I met with Doctor Nelson I experienced immediate results. He fixed a disconnect between my brain and muscles so that I could perform tasks that required using multiple signals.  Through his activation therapy, the tension in my neck and upper shoulder regions is gone and I no longer have headaches. My vision is more acute and my ability to focus is back to normal. I have become more positive, energetic, and upbeat.
