Glute activation is the foundation of your core.

Don't worry so much about the minimus for this article's purpose, but it's important to recognize that the hips are supported by muscles on the front, back, outside (lateral) and inside (medial) regions.
This supports the hip and provides mobility and movement in many different directions.
This is what allows us as humans to accomplish so many different combinations of movement.
