Men Try Big Butts For A Day

(upbeat music) Yeah, I like big butts. I like big butts on men and women. I want a big butt, but because I'm a guy I don't feel like I'mallowed to want a big butt. Everybody wants a nice ass. Well, I think anyone with a bigger butt gets a lot of attention.

His Butt Booster. Right away it kinda feels like a bra. So, there's like the title tag and then on the back of itthere's no other information. Here's my flat butt. (twinkling music) Oh my god, I'm so happy in these. So I just put the underwear on.

My pants feel very filled out. And these pants are likeusually totally filled out by just my natural ass, but like damn. I sat down in a chairright after I put this on and I can tell why people withbig butts have such big egos. 'Cause they're so highup, and I'm into it. It'll be interestingto see if anybody else can tell the difference.

Your pants look tight. Oh god, why is it so hardé It kinda feels like a real butt. Oh, that's a firm butt. Thank you so much. (Tall Man) Good job. I did people do squats for a month. Do you like ité No, it's kinda weird.

(laughing) oh. One benefit of the bigbutt that I will miss is that when I sit on people's laps, they don't talk abouthow bony my cheeks are. I think before Ithought I was more happy with the shape of mybutt than I actually am. And I think going throughthis just made me realize I actually don't want the explosive

like Nicki Minaj butt that I think I want. I think I had the most funI've had in a really long time. The grass is greener, let me tell you. It's fuller, too. What do you thinké I think I like thereal thing better, but. Uh, uh, uh Where is HRé

Hamstring Muscle Cramps WEAK GLUTES

Chris: Hey, Jeff. This is Chris from Arkansas.I'm 34 and I've been a member of AthleanX for the last 8 to 10 months. My quot;Ask Jeffquot; question is: When I try to dothings like barbell hip thrusts I get Charlie horse cramps in my hamstrings. Keep in mind, I do an 8 to 12 minute dynamicwarmup prior to working out, as well as a static stretch routine nightly. Thanks for all your information and keep upthe great work. Jeff: Hey, Chris! Thanks for your question.It's actually a really, really good question

because cramping most often is not the resultof what we think it might be. You see, a lot of people think that crampingcomes from either being dehydrated, or low in sodium, or low in potassium. While those things might occur they reallyonly occur at such severe levels of depletion that you're probably going to have other thingsto worry about hand getting to the gym and doing your workout. You see, when you cramp – especially duringa barbell hip thrust – most often the result of that, or what's causing that, is a weaknessin another muscle group trying to do the job

of the muscle group that's too weak in thefirst place. Think about a barbell hip thrust. You shouldbe getting the strength from your gluts to drive you into hip extension; it's a hip extensionmachine. Your knees are bent so you think that you'vegot to push up to your hamstrings, but they hamstrings are probably trying to do the jobof the weak gluts and in doing so, they're not equipped to do it. It's like asking for help when the help'snot really there. The illequipped help, or muscles here – hamstrings for hip extension– are not going to do a really good job

doing it. So they're going to work and do their best,but become quickly seized up and cramped because they're being overtaxed and overloaded. Inthis case you're looking at a case, probably, of weak gluts. What you have to do is really start to switchyour mindset when you do your glut barbell thrust, or your glut exercises. Really focuson trying to initiated the movement with the gluts. Squeeze as hard as you possibly can. Squeeze like you've got your last dime betweenyour cheeks. It might work. Something, whatever

you can think about to try to drive that movementfrom the gluts first, and then allow the hamstrings to help. The same thing happens even whenyou're just doing a squat. You'd be amazed at how much your hamstringsactually help you with knee extension, not curling your knee up. That's why I don'treally like hamstring curl machines because they're not very functional. See, in functionyour hamstrings will actually work to extend your knee. Watch as I demonstrate here with the skeleton.See, as I take a step, we know that the hamstring wants to bend my knee back. Remember, thedescent into a squat or even as we walk, as

our knee bends; that's not active hamstringflexion. That's happening because we're giving intogravity. We're allowing the knee to bend as I take that step. What happens though is,in order to straighten ourselves out, if I didn't have to worry about it I could pullmy leg back openly here. You can see that the bone would move, theknee would flex and that's what the hamstring would do. That's what we think, that's whywe do hamstring curl machines. If I don't allow my foot to come off the ground – whichis what's happening when we really walk, or run, or squat – then that force is gettingblocked.
