Getting to the Bottom of Effective Glute Exercises

by Kris Pitcher

I came across this great article at ACE Fitness and just had to share it with you. You'll have to do a little bit of reading, but I want you to get to the bottom of effective glute exercises.

The gluteus maximus is our largest muscle, and the one we need to keep in shape through our life in order to remain independent. Think about it, if you can't stand up and sit down on your can't go to the bathroom. Hey, I tell it like it is.

But, until then, we want our rear to be shapely and represent us well from the back side right? Right! So, ACE took a look at muscle activation via EMG electrodes during specific exercises to see which ones elicited the most response.

You'll see the results and how to put them into practice in the following article. You'll also find explanations of the: squat, front lunge, quadruped & step-up, and single-leg squat. Happy Reading!
