The gluteus maximus and gluteus medius are two muscles that are EXTREMELY important for golf.
The gluteus maximus is the primary hip extensor and is the most important muscle for generating speed during your downswing.
It is commonly referred to as the “King of the Golf Swing”.
The gluteus medius is the primary frontal plane stabilizer and therefore keeps you from swaying and sliding during your swing sequence.
The gluteus medius and maximus work together to ensure smooth and coordinated pelvic rotation, which is extremely important for sequencing and power.
This is a 20 minute circuit that targets your glutes in all sorts of ways, from isolated activation, stability, reactivity, and power.
