What causes weak gluteus minimus?
Typically, the most prominent cause of weakness in these muscles is lack of activity or sedentary lifestyle. As technology advances and more people are confined to desk jobs in which most of the day is spent in a sitting position, the glutes atrophy and the anterior hips become accustomed to a shortened position.
How do you train gluteus medius and minimus?
Does walking work the gluteus minimus?
Both of these muscles are worked more intensely when walking on an incline. The gluteus medius and minimus, located deeper in the hip, work to pull the leg sideways away from the body and help control the position of the pelvis.
