1. Gluteus Maximus
In charge of hip flexion and extension, however often misused when we tell an athlete to engage their glutes. When used as the predominant tissue for posterior pelvic tilt it can result in painful lower back issues in the long run. These are designed for that “violent” hip extension/flexion as opposed to so many athletes that try to use their hip flexors to pull off some of the hard work… stop! These big boys are supposed to take it to the house, so let them with pride as you start making a shelf to hold the drink tray at your next house party.
2. Gluteus Medius
In charge of sacrum stability, lack of activation of these muscles is the normal culprit of the always sexy “hitch” that we see in athletes coming out of the bottom of a squat. Many of us believe that the tightness of our IT bands is the culprit and we mash and mash and mash them with a barbell until we get hot flashes at the mere sight of a rolling pin. While the IT band inserts at the glute, if we havent developed these stabilizer tissues we are, again, facing the always enjoyable low back pain.
3. Gluteus Minimus
In charge of tilting and tucking the pelvis, that’s right the little guy is supposed to be doing the pelvic centering. What we mean by pelvic centering is this: Your body was built to transmit load down your spine in a linear fashion, if we dont properly center our pelvis on the acting load line via gravity and reaction forces during things like running, we transmit shear load through our lumbar spine via that ghetto butt pop. Pro user tip: you rbody doesnt get the warm fuzzies from loading the spine in shear. See a pattern here about low back pain? It has a lot to do with your hips and glutes, so it may be high time you start looking downstream of the pain to find the source of your woes “
And I have to chuckle.
These are the same people who will finish a WOD with bloody hands and broken bones. They hate burpees but still do hundreds of them–even if they’ve just had major surgery.
To be called crazy by this group is high praise–so I just smile and agree.
I am crazy: crazy for challenges, for living and feeling, for new experiences, for new milestones, for never quitting when the world goes to shit.
Three weeks ago I decided to sign up for a marathon for fun.
This was my 7th marathon, and in the past, I would run 5 days a week, building to a weekly total of 45-50 miles before the taper. My short runs were anywhere from 4-6 miles, medium runs of 8-14 miles, and long runs of 15-20.
This year was different, however. With only 3 weeks to prepare, I managed one decent long run (18 miles) and one medium run (12 miles). I did one short run of 6 miles and one medium run of 8. That’s it.
Except for CrossFit, 5 days a week.
Last year, I did CrossFit 2-3 times a week and ran a LOT. This year, I rarely miss a WOD, and run very little outside of class.
The result is that this year, I had a PR of 4:05:51, which is 15 minutes faster than the year prior.
You read that right: 15 minutes faster.
