Hey Nicole55

You should still feel the glute during the squat during the eccentric phase if you hip hinge correctly and kick back your glutes keeping a focus on having your weight distributed mostly on heels with only some on your toes. Make sure your knees dont track to much forward keeping your shins as perpendicular to the ground as possible.
