I think my glutes (strength) are holding me back, but I’m not entirely sure.
While there is all this talk on glute activation drills and exercises, I’m wondering if any NON-BEGINNERS have focused on the glutes stuff and significantly improved their squat and pull numbers (not just for injury prevention).
I would like to be a bit more convinced before I allocate my valuable training time to that stuff (training economy perspective). I have the feeling that the people advocating that stuff are often either weak themselves and/or in the business of marketing something.
For example, you see pretty weak guys pushing very heavy weights on the supposedly gold standard glute exercise, the hip thrust.
