Glute Release - Cross-Friction

Glute Release - Cross-Friction

This soft tissue release combines a point of compression and with a cross fiber massaging movement to provide a deeper release in the muscle area on the back of the hip. MOBO’s ability to anchor securely to a stable surface frees your hand to grasp the bar and apply massaging movements that separate myofascial layers and increase blood flow. This releases tension on the back of the lower body and allows better positions for the hip and pelvis. This improves warm-up and movement preparation before activity or sport.  

Please watch the video for instructions to perform this MOBO release. 


  • You may want to find additional areas of muscle/tendon near this location. Simply move the end of the MOBO around this muscle area to find areas for release.
  • Position the MOBO so that it is parallel to the ground between you and the wall for best pressure and control. 


  • Avoid placing the end of MOBO close to or directly on the tailbone (sacrum) or the hip bone (greater trochanter).
  • Discontinue if there is sharp, shooting, or radiating pain.
