Have had a succession of minor injuries throughout the year the most recent being a repeat of a hamstring strain (tweaked it several months ago during the Bath 1/2M and then strained it again 10 days ago on a hilly 5 mile cross country run).
The problem is that my gluteals are not functioning effectively – they're too weak and consequently most of the work is being done by my quads and hamstrings. Last weeks’ cross country proved too much for the hamstrings and I now have a slight tear in the large head on the rhs. The fact that I’m not making use of my glutes has been the cause of other problems too – anterior and posterior hip impingement etc.
Physiotherapy and sports massage has helped temporarily but the only long term solution is to strengthen the gluteals. Does any one know of some good gluteal gluteal strengthening exercises/routines?
