(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
Glute Medius The Weakest Muscle in Your Lower Body
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX . I'm going to show you today how to addressthe most underdeveloped, weakest muscle in your lower body, bar none. By doing so, we're going to help to improveyour big lifts. Like the squats, dead lifts, and certainlyany single leg activity because the muscle group that we're talking about here todayis the glute medius. Unless you're having a concerted effort inyour programming to train this muscle, you're
probably not doing it and you're leaving yourselfexposed to a lot of other damage down the kinetic chain. Most of that in the knees because we knowthat if you have weakness and instability up at the hips it's going to affect the positionof the knees and that most often will result in too much torque, and pain, and injury inthe knee. So what we can do for the glute medius is,we can do this in a lot of different ways. The first way to do it is to get up here againstthe wall, okayé Lift up your leg here.
This is not the leg we're actually workingbecause in order to get the glute medius, what we want to be able to do is abduct thehip straight out to the side. Now, when we do a closed chain it looks alittle different than it would traditionally as people know as abduction of the hip. This way. Straight out to the side. Well, when we do with our foot fixed on theground and you drop the hip out to the side, you're actually squeezing in.
you can see if I kept it going it's not differentwith the hip ending up out here on the outside of my body. So you will just allow yourself to get lazy. Drop down to the side. Allow your hips to drop down in this direction. The only thing that can actually bring themback up now if you do this right is the contraction right here of the glute medius, leaving itstraight across. Sideways.
You should feel it tightening right here inthe hip. Right in the butt. You come straight across and you try to liftyour hips up even a little bit more at an angle this way. You feel the squeeze, you let it drop andget lazy. Feel the squeeze, let it drop and get lazy. If you can't do 20 of these in a really slow,contracted way, squeezing every single time without the burn becoming something you can'teven tolerate, then you really, really have
weak hips. Even doing exercises like the squat when you'rebeing told to keep your knees out as you go down is going to become very difficult foryou and is going to be somewhat problematic when you try to keep your knees healthy whenyou're doing squats. But you guys know that there's different levelsfor different people. We can make this more difficult by addingsome resistance. So if we find that our athletes are strongenough in the bodyweight version then we add the ball.
Hey this is Gangemi the Sock Doc andin this tutorial I want to talk a little bit more about the hamstrings. We talkedabout it somewhat in the knee tutorial that was put out awhile back. Butthe hamstrings are a very commonly injured muscle. A lot of times people pulltheir hamstring, they end up with sore hamstrings after working out, evenafter running or playing a hard basketball game over the weekend. Butactually I see the hamstrings not need to be treated as much as I do theother parts of the back of the leg there, in other words the glute max yourbutt muscle, and your calf
muscles, your gastroc and soleus. So the whole kinetic chain often is off inthe back of the leg. The balance between your glute max or hamstrings and yourcalf, to drive you forward and give you propulsion in pushing yourself forwardwhether you're running up a hill, cycling hard or kicking hard or whateveryou're doing. So let's talk just a little bit about whatyou can do. The hamstring, obviously your hamstring starts in the backof what you call your ischial tuberosity which is your sit bone. And ifyou put your hand right in the back of
your butt there you can feel your bone andthat's where all three of your hamstring muscles start. And then they comedown and then they attach to either side of your knee. Two on the insideand one on the outside. We're not going to get into those names rightnow but basically what I want you to do is, if you notice that with yourleg bent like this that you're feeling some discomfort or tightness there,that's probably going to be more your hamstring. Now if you start waydown here and just bend it a little bit and you feel it out like this withyour leg extended, that might
be more glute max. And in here, with your hamstringlike this a slight little bend, you actually might be influencingyour calf a little bit more. So hamstring think more neutral and a curlhere, but at the bottom when you start to bend your leg, that's more calf.So this is more calf here at the very bottom even though you're using bothmuscles. But as you come up more, that's more hamstring, and if you extend backand curl a little bit more you're going to be using both the hamstringsand the glute max because your
glute max is going to push you back like this.Okay. Now the other thing you're going to get moregastroc action is if your foot is dorsiflexed like so. So my toes are pointeddown. So this is going to be more hamstring, like this motion here, andthen gastroc here like this. So in other words if you're feeling more painin this direction here, this motion, think more gastroc calf, here, thinkmore hamstring. So glute max, hamstring, gastroc way down here, the startof the flexion that's more gastroc.
The other muscle of course in your calf, soleus,that's more tippy toe. More pushing off on your toes, propellingyou forward, that's down there. Hamstring origin insertions, again you mightfind a tender spot, a trigger point. The origin of the hamstring is rightup in your ischial tuberosity so if you're feeling pain here you can actuallytouch that area and move your leg like I just showed you. If that relievessome of the discomfort, work that trigger point like we talked aboutin the trigger point tutorial in the articles.
