Ep 9: [Q&A] To Tuck or Not to Tuck the Pelvis for Glute Engagement?

Have you ever been told to "squeeze the glutes to tuck the hips under" when you do squats, deadlifts, kettlebell swings? In today's show, we talk about how maybe you've been overexerting your glutes and pelvic muscles while lifting weights to activate the muscles. Like a lot of us have at one point or another, you've probably been trying too hard, because exercise is about what is a reasonable form in comfortable positions. In this episode, we have Dr. Jonathan Fass back to discuss an audience question. Cara asked:"Should we tuck the pelvic for maximum glute engagement?"Listen in to learn why you should move your muscles naturally without forcing them when lifting low weights. You will also learn the importance of listening to your body to assess exercise positions that feel comfortable for you.
