Sitting at a desk all day can create poor posture because the hip flexors shorten and tighten. The glutes are not meant to be stationary for long periods of time. We need to get off our butts and move!
The muscles also "forget" how to activate properly. When they do not activate properly they tighten and stay "working" in the seated position. This can create forward tilting hips which push the abdomen out and create the illusion of the 'gut' even with the absence of belly fat.
The hip thrust was first invented in 2006 by 'the glute guy' Bret Contrerras. This exercise right here is one of the best, most effective exercises for the glutes. It actually isolates them - with a little hamstring help but we like that! During this movement we train the glutes to work as we want them too. They do not shorten and tighten, the activate and tilt the hips the exact way they are meant to work.
Glute building is not just for the 20-somethings!! I have been training my glutes like this for the last 2 years and I see phenomenal results. This program works!! Remember I am 54 years old! 😉
Women and men need to train the glutes in a program like this - also age does not matter. The older you get the more at risk you become for factors like bone loss, hip and knee injury and replacement, arthritis, back pain, and improper posture alignment.
Let's nip it in the butt now and get the alignment working properly before we have major issues to deal with later in life.
