One of the largest muscle groups of the lower body, the glutes support compound movements like squats and deadlifts. Do you feel like you're doing all the things you should be, but nothing is helping with glute growth?
Is your butt the one part of your body that’s lagging? Maybe you have a flat butt but you’re also pretty weak in your squat game. Your glutes are one of the most important muscle groups on your body because they are the powerhouse behind some of the most popular exercises. Want to deadlift? You’ll need to hip hinge. And what drives a hip hinge? Your glutes!
If you’ve been wondering how to deadlift properly, I’m going to help you with that. What I want to do is provide you with an official deadlift form checklist that breaks down this exercise step-by-step so you can confidently stand in front of the barbell.
Leg workouts can be downright crippling if you attempt them with bad knees! This leg workout contains carefully selected leg exercises that are closed-chain and functional with is a high degree of athletic carryover. Great care is taken to keep the force shifting down and back as opposed to down and forward to make sure that the knee joint doesn't take on unnecessary strain and stress.
The squat is one of the best functional movements, which means it does more than just make your legs look great. It strengthens your joints, reduces your risk for injuries, and improves your hip hinge movement pattern. Maybe most of you know the basic squat. You might even know the common mistakes to avoid. BUT there’s a really good chance you are making the mistake I’m about to talk about.
