IT’S BOOTAY TIME!

GLUTES 101

FACT #1: The glutes are made up of 3 muscles – the Gluteus Maximus, the Gluteus Medius and the Gluteus Minimus. The Gluteus Maximus is the largest muscle in the body which means when you are working on them they are going to be burning up some serious calories!

By strengthening your glute muscles, your spine will have more support and your pelvis will automatically begin to stabilize. Which is essential for a better posture – the benefits of good posture comes improved confidence,  you look slimmer because you stand taller and so on.

FACT #2: Strong glutes can reduce your risk of injurying your lower back, your knees, groin and hamstrings.   How scary is that! To consider how many muscles are potentially affected from weak glutes.

The reason why all of those other muscles are at potential risk of being injuried is because if the glutes are weak and stretched they required extra assistance from surrounding muscles to perform a movement that technically the glutes should be able to handle.

Lifestyle habits like inactivity and poor eating lead to fat gain. But this inactivity can also lead to weak glutes – tilting the pelvis forward which can cause the gut to stick out more than it should and pulls the back out of alignment …  hello back pain!

FACT #3: Did you know your rear end is capable of generating a huge amount of power?! Strengthening your gluteus maximus can lead to improved speed, acceleration and explosive power. So you will definitely be able to keep up with your kids and leave you  feeling strong like Wonder Woman!!
