There are reasons other than looking good in your Friday night jeans, to make sure to work your gluts.

1.       Your gluts help propel you (in conjunction with your quads and your hamstrings).

2.       Your gluts work together with your back to keep you upright (According to the 09’ Women’s Health Training Guide.  70 % of people with lower back pain also have weak gluts!).

3.       Along with the core, the gluts help to balance you for solid stability.

Try doing:

-plies’ with a weighted bar or a single heavy dumbbell.

Front lunge with push-off (like a marching motion)

-side lunge

-curtsy squat followed by arabesque with 8 lb weight

-hip bridge and heel drag (stability ball)
