Strengthen Glutes + Release Hamstrings

Strengthen Glutes + Release Hamstrings

DAY 1: Use videos 1 - 3: What's Going on Back There, Are Your Glutes Working Too Hard or Not Hard Enough, and Establish a Blueprint for Center to complete self-assessment and remind your hips, glutes, and hamstrings of optimal alignment.

DAY 3: Use Hammy Time
DAY 4: Use Power Your Push Off

DAY 6: Use Functional Core
DAY 7: Use Comprehensive Hip + Hamstring Reset
