GLUTES AND HIP FLEXORS are important for getting up and down from a sitting position, and they provide the strength to keep the upper body straight along with the other lower body muscles and the core muscles. There are two GLUTE muscles. The Gluteus Maximus is the bigger butt muscle that provides the most power to up and down movements. The Gluteus Minimus is on the side and is used to open the legs in #what is called hip abduction. You build the Gluteus Maximus and Hip Flexors muscles with hip raises with or without weights held on the lower stomach on top of a folded towel. Thrust upwards and hold your Glutes tight for best effect. The Squat with or without weights is the key to building big Glutes. When squatting keep the back straight by moving your chin down and extending the back of your neck and holding your shoulder blades together by keeping your elbows back and tight to your body. Make sure your first move is to fold forward by thrusting your butt backwards. Spread your knees slightly as you squat and keep your weight on your hells as you stand up and tighten your Glute muscles squeezing them together. To build your Gluteus Minimus you can raise your leg sideways in the fire hydrant move so named because it imitates the movement of a male dog urinating on a fire hydrant!! Don't forget your Protein-Rich Shake 30 minutes to 1 hour after your exercise session and stay well-hydrated. Emphasize these and other GLUTE building exercises you can find such as band walking and clam shells in some of my exercise posts and you will have great working GLUTES for more than posing!!! #drdavidheber #butt #glutes #hips #musclebuilding #protein to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
