One of the biggest obstacles a new client may need to overcome is a bad case of ‘Gluteal Amnesia’.
In other words, some clients may lack the ability to contract their glutes on command to produce force.
Glutes are the largest and most centrally located group of muscles in the human body. If you have a case of Gluteal Amnesia then a ripple effect will occur, leading to 99% of all orthopedic pain.
That said, I always focus on helping my clients get their butt in gear by performing at least two to three butt exercises for every knee dominant exercise.
Here are my top three glute exercises:
1. Glute Bridge
2. Romanian Dead Lift
3. Pull Through
Look at your program and see where you can replace knee dominant exercises (squats and lunges) with these butt dominant variations. Or, you can simply add these butt exercises into your current workout program while accounting for the total reps to meet the recommended three to one ratio.
Looking forward to seeing how this program tweak goes for you!
