GLUTE STRENGTH

Put an end to dormant butt syndrome, a condition that refers to the tightness of hip flexors and underdeveloped gluteal muscles. Sitting for periods throughout the day or sleeping in certain positions can weaken the gluteal muscles and strain other parts of the body. If you don’t train your trunk, your surrounding muscles and joints absorb strain during exercise that can cause hamstring injuries, back pain, hip pain, and serious knee damage. Learn to use a Step bench, free weights, medicine balls, and/or resistance tubing to increase the strength and power of your backside.
