Glute Activation for Runners & The Honey Badger Race Update

Posted by on Jun 2, 2021 in Exercises, Health and Wellness, News

We hope you’re ready, because racing season is coming! Our longtime partner, Marathon Matt, just announced their first LIVE race in 18 months. The Honey Badger Half/10K/5K will be returning to China Camp Park in Marin on Sunday, July 18th. There will be a virtual option as well, but if you’re itching for that feeling you only get from running a live race, China Camp Park is a beautiful way to get back into it.
 
To celebrate, this week’s Quick Tip is an exercise called the alternating glute bridge to help wake up a lazy glute, an issue many runners face. But, you don’t have to be a runner to benefit from this exercise. Strengthening the glutes can do a lot to help alleviate low back pain from sitting or standing at a desk all day, too.

If you need some help getting back into racing shape, or working through any aches and pains in your body, give our front desk a call at 415-227-0331 and come in to see one of our bodyworkers. We love developing treatment plans to help our clients reach their goals, whatever those goals may be.
