Glut tightness is a common complaint of many sportspeople. In the video below Luke demonstrates a number of glut release techniques that can be useful to release them before or after activity: 🙏
💥 Stretching - make sure to hold each stretch for a minimum of 30sec
💥 Foam roller technique – have the roller vertical, we can use our body weight to trigger point tight spots, or provide general massage to the area
💥 Massage ball – again, we can trigger point tight/sore spots by sitting on the ball, or massage by rolling over it
It is important to note that if you are consistently having issues with glut tightness you may in fact require a structured strength program to fix the problem long term. If this is the case, don't hesitate to contact the physiotherapy centre for professional guidance and treatment.
Additionally these release techniques can be helpful when treating glut tendonitis.
