The Glute Release is for you if you need to wake up your hip extension muscles after sitting at work, school, or home for long periods of time and plan to quickly transition to an active task, fitness routine, or sports activity, or you are simply trying to unwind the tension from a long day. For athletes at all levels, you depend on the gluteal muscle group of the hips to provide strength and power in quick changes of direction, beating an opponent to the ball, and improving your latest 10K finish time. This release assists better hip and pelvic positioning for the prime movers of the lower body to improve strength, power, endurance, and recovery.
Please watch the video for instructions to perform this MOBO release.
- For additional release, apply cross-friction by using your right hand that is grasping the MOBO bar and while maintaining pressure into the glute, repeatedly massage vertically, up and down about 2 inches, with the end of MOBO. Repeat this 5 times.
- You may want to find areas of muscle/tendon near this location. Simply move the end of MOBO slightly left or right to find additional areas for release.
- Avoid placing the end of MOBO close to or directly on the tailbone (sacrum) or the hip bone (greater trochanter).
- Discontinue if there is shooting, zinging, or radiating pain of any kind.
