Nowadays, both men and women aspire to develop a pair of good-looking glutes. But glutes also play a key role in achieving and maintaining optimal posture, joint and muscular health, and the ability to perform the most basic everyday tasks. The glutes are the pillar of strength and stability for the entire body. Unfortunately, most people have weak and underperforming glutes, even some of them that look good.
I had this client last winter, Jennifer, in her 20´s and troubled about her “flat butt”. She had tried a lot of celebrities workouts that she found on social media but none worked the way she wanted. Sadly, this happens more than you think. People who spend hours and hours working out but don´t get properly rewarded.
More recently, I trained George, in his 40´s, working in an office for almost 20 years, and later hitting the gym 3 times a week, where he performs the typical exercises: bench press, squats, rows, and so on. Despite his effort and workouts, his body posture was poor, and needed to visit a physiotherapist at least once a week because of his lower back pain. His physiotherapist recommended finding a specific exercise plan to ease that pain.
When we look at glute training, we find out that people have opposite approaches, like Jennifer and George. Can you relate?
