A well-trained rear end isn’t just nice to look at!

Strong glutes and hamstrings can help improve

  • posture,
  • alleviate lower back, hip, and knee pain,
  • enhance athletic performance,
  • reduce bone density loss
  • and even eliminate that stubborn abdominal pooch.

What’s more, because muscle burns more calories at rest than fat does, increasing lean muscle mass via glutes training can accelerate fat loss and help to keep it off. Add squats, lunges and deadlifts to your current strength training routine, making sure to adequately stretch out the opposing hip flexors to improve posture.

Strong glutes support the lower back. When the glutes aren’t strong enough to perform their hip extension function, muscles that weren’t designed for the job will take over. Protect your hips, knees and ankles by strengthening your glutes with hip thrusts, single leg deadlifts, and weighted clamshells.
