You’ve been sitting all day long and research tells us your waistline is going to pay dearly, but who knew the desk life would also turn off signals to our backsides?
Here are 6 ways to wake up sleepy glutes.
Gluteal amnesia or “dead butt syndrome” is a real thing and it happens when your glutes forget how to activate correctly. While gluteal amnesia may not cause symptoms early on, having a major muscle group like the glutes not working properly will have effects globally throughout your body as time passes.
Some of these effects include:
Lower back pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Muscular imbalances
- Postural distortion
The exciting news is that gluteal amnesia isn’t permanent if you’re willing to do the work!
