Abstract

One of the more common deficits identified by rehabilitation specialists and strength and conditioning practitioners is weakness of the glutei muscles, particularly the gluteus medius (GM). Gluteal weakness can reduce athletic performance and precipitate a number of lower extremity injuries. In this article, we discuss the anatomy and function of the GM musculature, present a review of the current literature pertaining to GM conditioning, and recommend an exercise model based on current strengthening guidelines.
