Fit Tips: Bring Up Your Rear (with Video)

Two effective exercises for the butt and rear upper leg muscles, or glutes and hamstrings, are dead lifts and hip-thrusters. In order to perform a dead lift, stand with feet hip-width apart, with knees slightly bent. Contract (shorten) the upper back muscles and hinge forward from the hips, bending only as far as possible so that the hamstrings begin to stretch. Contract glutes, and return to standing.

WHAT YOU SHOULD ALWAYS DO

One client asked me " what exercises are we doing today?" I said

Leg Press Machine..YES or NO? For beginners I say no

I HATE IT when clients use the leg press machine without knowing how to use it. Don't get me wrong, it isolates the quads, hamstrings, and gluteus but it can also wreck havoc on the knee joint capsule and the ligaments in the knee if not used properly. That means it can result in knee tendonitis and a whole host of other issues. If you don't know how to use the leg press machine-DON'T USE IT. My advice is perform squats and/or lunges to build strength in the lower body.
