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

Before activation, I found myself injury prone as well as very inconsistent during my practices for track/cross country. I suffered from inconsistent practices and pained muscles and joints, but after one session of activation with Dr.Tom, I felt brand new, refreshed and explosive. I went from not qualifying for top seven my first cross country season to being the #1 runner the following year for both seasons, being an individual state qualifier and school record holder for the 1600-3200. Activation has truly changed the way I run and compete and it’s a great tool for any athlete. I activate every day before anything I do, whether it’s mental or physical.
