LOWER BODY MUSCLES include posture and movement muscles which stabilize your body and keep you from falling over when pushed, but they also help you move,walk, lift, and bend. The largest muscle in the group is the Gluteus Maximus or Butt Muscle. You work that out with squats, hip raises, resistance band walks, and the leg press. The quadriceps on the front of the thigh is the next largest and the knee extension on a machine is the most effective. The hamstrings on the back of the thigh can be exercised with machines that focus on them. These muscles should be stretched and loosened with a foam roller at every session. The calf and foot muscles form the base and need to be stretched as well. A small hard ball can be rolled under the foot and ankle raises can exercise the calf muscles followed by stretching. Stay well-hydrated as these muscles can cramp and be sore for a day or two after your workout. Remember to have your Protein-Rich Shake within 30 minutes to 1 hour of your workout. When it comes to the lower body- "It's all about the Base !!!" To learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
