Forums Lifting Glutes = Clutch? Re: Glutes = Clutch?

AvatarBailey Martinez

Exactly. If I stand over extended, this is a position where my “clutch” isn’t engaged and if I go into a squat from here, I can’t activate my hamstrings as well, and the transmission of power is severely diminished.

I guess my next question is that when I go into a squat, about half way down I feel as though my glutes can’t do any more work and my quads start to kick in. I’m wondering if this is normal, or if I don’t have fully developed glutes, and perhaps they should still feel engaged throughout the entire squat ROM?
