Hip Stability/Strength & Plantar Fascitis
Using band walks for glute activation 🍑? The lower left picture shows our client trying to engage hip muscles with the band but struggling to align the knee over the ankle—an indication that those glutes just don’t want to do their job!
When verbal cues and tactile cues 👉 just don’t do the trick, consider that the muscles don’t know what it feels like to engage. A quick set of isometric holds in sidelying (top picture) allowed her to successfully “find and feel” her glutes 💪 and 1 minute later executed a much more productive band walk, shown bottom right 🙌.
This simple change relieved her plantar fascia pain ✅ #magic
