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 walked into Dr. Nelson’s office unsure of what to expect – and left completely amazed. The ankle pain I had been dealing with for nearly a year and a half had completely disappeared. I was in my first ballet class since my appointment with Dr. Nelson when suddenly, something in my mind just clicked. I was able to find those muscles my teachers were always talking about.
