Training your glutes has more benefits than you may think! As a consequence of "sitting disease" many suffer from poor posture, strong glutes bring more support to the lower back which help set a good foundation for your posture.
It's all about the booty in this 8 minute HIIT This workout for beginners created by personal trainer Rob Sulaver. Everyone wants a great rear, but did you know that having a great butt also benefits your knees by keeping them nice and aligned? Rob shows you 2 key moves (curtsy lunges and side plank clam shells) repeated across 3 circuits.
Curtsy lunges are lunges preformed by having your thighs cross by bending both knees as if your are curtsying. These differ from traditional lunges because it puts a emphasis on your glutes by hitting your glute medius.
Side plank clam shells is performed while performing the side plank from the knees, making this one a little easier at first and probably a good place to start. You need to make sure your hips move forward and your body is in alignment, core stability and control is very important when doing this exercise.
