The Best Glute Stretch (That’s Not A Stretch)

Ever get the feeling that your glutes just keep getting tighter and tighter no matter how much you do your stretching?

Unfortunately, as you’re probably starting to realize, stretching alone simply isn’t cutting it.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Stay tuned because in today’s coaching I’m going to show you a simple addition for your glute stretch that will finally get them to relax.


There’s a little insider secret I want you to remember when it comes to those knotted up glutes…

It’s that you can’t stretch your way out of tightness.

Say what???


This is because the tightness you feel is actually the result of weakness in the surrounding tissues. And when it comes to tight glutes, the weak link is your inner thighs of all places, more specifically the part that creates external rotation of the hip. Our inner thighs are what’s creating that rotation and if they don’t work properly, the glutes will always be tight.

So how do we strengthen them? We use the exercise from today’s coaching that at first glance look easy, but trust me they are extremely challenging. You’ll be shaking and quaking before you know it.

The only equipment you’ll need for today is a yoga block or something similar.


This is just the beginning guys. If you want to take your hip health to the next level and finally get rid of any aches, pains and tightness in your glutes, IT bands, hip flexors, or hamstrings…check out the Healthy Hips 10 Day Challenge where I show you a simple system to unlock your hips in less than 10 minutes a day so you can finally say “bye-bye” tight glutes!
