To get a better workout for your butt, hips,thighs, and hamstrings, you can do elevated lunges like I'm doing here.But to get yourself set up to do elevated lunges, you need to start offwith your feet about one and a half to two foot lengths behind the box orthe platform you're using to do the elevated lunges on. Once you are in the starting position, getyour dumbbells and do elevated lunges like this. As you're doing lunges,make sure you keep your head up and look straight ahead. Although this exerciseis called a lunge, you
don't want to lunge forward as you squat down.You want to squat straight up and straight down by keeping your kneesbehind your toes. So, do not let the knee of the elevated leg glide over yourtoes. You want to squat down as far as you can untilthe knee of the leg that's not elevated touches the floor. Make sureyou come down slow enough so your knee only touches the floor. Don't come downso fast that you bang or hurt your knee on the floor. Make sure you do thisexercise on both legs. You want to keep your heels flat on the platformor box at all times while
doing this exercise. If you can't keep yourheels flat, use a lower platform or do regular lunges instead of elevatedlunges. If you want to get an even better butt workoutdoing elevated lunges, focus more on pushing through your heels by curlingup your toes slightly. Another thing you can do for a better buttworkout doing elevated lunges is to pause at the bottom for two to three secondsbefore squatting back up. One more option for getting a better buttworkout is to do elevated lunges on a higher platform. Instead of doing yourelevated lunges on a fiveinch
step, for example, you can better butt workoutdoing elevated lunges on higher five to teninch step or platform.
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.
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
