The hips and shoulders are often referred to as “engines”. The trunk or core is often referred to as the transmission.
Another impacting factor is if you are standing over extended.
If you are it can be cutting off the signal.
Your glutes set the position of your pelvis so yes how much you contract your glutes can have an impact.
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.
You need to correct the position you are standing in.
Start position is mob 1 finish position is mob 2.
If you aren’t in the correct start position this is where you start.
If you don’t start in a good position you can’t end in a good position.
Sounds like you may have restriction at the hip which is causing you to compensate your position which shuts your glutes down. Your quads do the work as a result of the compensation.
Daily Rx from June 3rd hits one way to address.
So based on what you are saying, it sounds like I should be able to feel the contraction throughout the ROM without feeling as though the glutes are disengaging. Thanks a ton!
Yes, the Daily Rx from June 3, 2013.
Are you seeing improvements with you hip and groin?
It doesn’t look like I can access the Daily Rx’s. 🙁
It may be an area that needs alot of work so it will come with exposures to it. Hit a dose and see where its at.
You may not be hitting the root cause of the problem.
Are you looking up/down stream as well?
It may be a situation that it would be beneficial to see a physio to help correct then you can maintain what is addressed. Getting help with something when needed is the smart thing to do to get it back on track.
Will do! Thanks Kaitlin!
