  • Really Train those Glutes

    People often like to claim that squats are a great glute exercise. In reality, they're just an okay glute exercise. This is due to the fact that the squat is most difficult at the bottom - AKA, a position of deep hip flexion. The glutes are most active near full hip extension, which represents the easiest part of the squat. Therefore, exercises that are most difficult near full hip extension are typically going to be better for training the glutes. This includes things like hip thrust and glute bridge variations, plus things like 45-degree back raises and even reverse hyperextensions.
    Don't just train hard. Train hard and smart!
