Bootybuilding – Glutes Activation 3/4 (Dominant Quads)
Looking to put some “junk in your trunk”, or blast past your personal best in squats? You’ve come to the right place!
HOWEVER YOU SHOULD WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW BEFORE KNOWING IF THE ONE ABOVE IS RIGHT FOR YOU!
Poor genetics is not the major cause of a “flat bottom”. It is MOSTLY (believe it, or not) the result of an unfavorable position of the pelvis and spine. I have yet to find a human being that hasn’t been crippled by an irreversible accident that has not been capable of building a nice, round ass.
Please refer to my previous video where we use a simple squat test in order to observe the glutes:
If dominant quadriceps is a problem for you then this will give you a push in the right direction.
Just to reiterate my previous post…
If you don’t use your glutes on a regular basis then they are likely to be asleep. If you sit down for most of the day this is more than likely to be the case.
Nonactivated glutes can cause hip & knee problems, foot problems, upper & lower back pain, migraines, kyphosis, misalignment of the pelvis, a “flat bottom,” etc., so don’t think of this as something that is only for people that train. If you have any of the aforementioned problems it is probably because you DON’T train.
If you DO train and have wondered why you can’t squat properly then sorting your glutes out will improve everything from squats to bench presses, so it is definitely worth some attention!
