  • You Can Get Great Glutes With These 8 Great Exercises.

    Do you know that the gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the body? The glutes generate power for you to sit, stand and run. The glutes also stabilize the pelvis and align the spine to improve your posture. The shape of your glutes also determines how great your butt looks! You want to make sure that your butt looks the best it possibly can, so you look amazing on the field or court, in the water or on snow, both coming and going. These exercises have worked particularly well for the women athletes I coach.

    Chances are that if your glutes are in excellent shape, the rest of your body is too. To get the toned, tight and elevated butt that you desire, there are some exercises that are more effective than others. So what are my “great booty secrets?” The best way to get a great behind is to do a variety of exercises that target the entire area. These eight  moves will tone your “tush” and boost your backside fast. To maximize your training,  you must do the moves correctly. Here are the tips for great form:
    Contract your glutes In any move, contract and squeeze your glutes as you come up or rise. In a squat, you can contract your glutes as you come down as well to maximize the burn.
    Go full range of motion (R.O.M.) Whether you are squatting or lunging, try to go as low and deep as you possibly can, to activate the gluteus in its entirety. You should aim to bring your thighs parallel to the floor. 
    Push harder If you haven’t reached fatigue on your last rep, you need to use more weight. Because the glutes are so large, they need to be challenged even more than other muscles. 
    Before you start any workout program, it is important that you get clearance from your doctor or licensed health care practitioner. You should start each workout with a two to five minute warm up and stretching. This will get the blood flowing to your muscles, and ready you for the more challenging part of the workout, without the risk of injury or strain. 
    As you do the workout, perform at least 12- 15 reps of each exercise for three sets. If you are looking to really build mass, lower your rep range to no more than 10 reps and lift as heavy as possible. To tone up and slim down, go for a higher rep range with a weight that you can handle. Personally, I do up to 20 repetitions per set. The last three reps should become fairly difficult to finish. If they are too easy, you need to add more weight so that you keep challenging your muscle tissue. Rest 30 to 45 seconds between each set.
