Strength Seated glute stretch

Your bum supports your lower back. If your job involves a lot of sitting, your glutes become less flexible, which can prevent them from firing while you run. Strength: Seated glute stretch nicely stretches out sore posteriors to enable a pain free run.


  • Stand next to a chair or bench and hold on.
  • Put your left foot above your right knee.
  • Sit down until you feel a stretch in your bum.
  • Lean slightly forward with your upper body but keep your back straight.

Be safe

Don’t overstretch and don’t bounce your stretch. Hold the stretch and reach a little further forward as your muscle relaxes into the stretch.
