In this workout program, we will focus on strengthening the lower body, especially our glutes.
Why such a big fuss about a glutes workout?
Because the gluteus maximus is the strongest muscle in your body and has multiple functions. Did you know that a lot of people suffer from gluteal amnesia or “sleepy” glutes from too much sitting? Our gluteal muscles give us the ability to stand upright but most of us spend most of our day sitting. You might also have tight hip muscles, especially the hip flexor, which pulls your hips out of alignment and can also cause an inability to activate the muscle properly. A muscle that is not activated won’t experience the same growth and other muscles will have to compensate for the malfunction. We will focus on the body-mind connection to help you to feel the exercise in the right place. Also when your butt muscles are strong, you have less risk of injuring your lower back. We actually have three layers of gluteal muscles: the gluteus maximus, and the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus, which are smaller and deeper layers. They keep our hips in place when we walk and also prevent our knees from caving in, and help with hop [?? No idea what this is. Do you mean “hopping”? I would delete it if you don’t need it] extension, abduction and rotation.
You can select your preferred workout, depending on how much time and energy you have, choosing between a standing routine, a floor routine or a mix of both.
