This challenge will focus on sculpting and strengthening one of the most important and by far the largest and strongest muscle groups in the body. The gluteals (gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus) and the hamstrings (biceps femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus) work together to extend, rotate and abduct the hip. They also contribute to stabilization of the pelvis, in particular during walking, running and climbing.
Follow this challenge and you will learn to activate, strengthen and support your body as well as your athletic performance. Strong glutes and hamstrings can help improve posture, alleviate lower back, hip and knee pain, enhance athletic performance, reduce bone density loss and even eliminate that stubborn abdominal pooch. Taking time to focus and train the glutes can provide valuable insight into strength imbalances as well increase your athletic prowess. Not to mention, glute training will shape and tone our derrieres to create an aesthetic that we can all get “behind”.
