What are the best glute exercises to use in rehab?

Side Plank Hip Abduction

For a recent inservice presentation, I looked at several research articles that compared EMG values of different exercises.  Below you will find my presentation as well as a handout I made that can be used as a quick cheat sheet in the clinic.  Check the video out and please give me some feedback!

Exercises reviewed include: front plank hip extensions, glute squeezes, side plank hip abduction, skater squats, single leg squats, step up variations, quadruped hip extensions, single leg deadliest, glute bridges, hip clamslateral band walks, pelvic drops, side lying hip abduction, standing hip abduction, squats, and lunges.

Here is my HANDOUT.

    Great organized way to present all the evidence. Going to start using the clam progression with my patients. Thanks!
