Here’s a discussion on gluteal and pelvic biomechanics. In this video, I discuss several important concepts, including:
- How the glutes protect the low back,
- The transfer of forces from the glutes to the rest of the body (how a glute squeeze creates hip extension torque, hip external rotation torque, and posterior pelvic tilt torque at lockout, creating a highly stable position),
- Why you should keep the glutes turned on during kettlebell swings while the bell is floating, and
- How posterior pelvic tilt mimics hip hyperextension.
In case you missed Skelly, he’s back!
