STRONG GLUTES FOR A BIGGER BOOTY
Those toned extremities you got from How to Lose Arm Fat are going to be useful for giving yourself a big pat on the b-hind after completing this latest workout! We're going to be engaging our glutes for a more perky, shapely booty. Butts come in all different shapes and sizes, and we should all learn to love our backsides - so it's time to shape what your mama gave ya!
WHY DO WE NEED STRONG GLUTES?
Your glutes are made up of three separate muscles - the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and the gluteus minimus. The maximus is the biggest muscle in your body! It is a powerhouse which gives shape to your butt and is activated when you raise your thigh to the side, rotate your leg, or thrust your hips forward. The medius and minimus work together and help the maximus with motions like lifting your leg to the side; those smaller glute muscles give you the ability to rotate your thigh outwards when your leg is straight and inwards when your hips are bent. So this muscle group is critical for performing all kinds of physical activity!
Strengthening your glutes will improve speed, agility, and jumping skills. Every time you take a step, your gluteus maximus stabilizes the pelvis, and this is important for runners: when your pelvis isn't stable, it puts pressure on your knees and ankles to compensate. An engaged backside prevents strained body movements, keeping you injury-free! Strong glute muscles make long-distance running less taxing so you can work on improving mileage and time.
Disengaged glute muscles harm our hip flexors (muscles that pull the thigh forward) as they become tight and rigid without proper forward propulsion, leading to stressed physical activity. Glutes reinforce pelvis motion and maintain integrity of movement in the hip joint, giving your lower back lots of support!
