Seated Gluteal Activation

Seated Gluteal Activation Sit with the legs open, a range where you feel a light stretch of the inner thighs, not over stretch. It need not be maximum wide position. If you are not able to sit with your pelvis upright with the weight in the center of your sitz bones, then raise the pelvis up by sitting on a stack of blankets or bolster. Simply press your whole leg outward with resistance from your hands. You will feel the lateral hip muscles engage. You may experience a nice lengthening of the inner legs due to the reciprocal inhibition effect of activating the lateral hip muscles.
