**GLUTE ACTIVATION** -
For many of you females out there you want to grow your glutes, however you cannot seem to find the exercise to make them switch on and work? - For me personally the smith machine split squat is one of the best exercises for glute activation, aswell as it is the front of your quads. I have tried hamstring curls, back extension and many more.. but this seems to be the one exercise that I can feel straight in my glutes πŸ‘! -
To perform this exercise you can use a barbell, dumbbells or for me I like to use the smith machine. Position your legs so that one of them is slightly foward in-front of the bar and the other placed onto the bench that you are using. Begin to slowly lower yourself down engaging your core and keeping your head up till your knee is around parallel with the bench and drive through your heel nice and controlled as you work your way back up. Make sure that your knee is inline with your toe as you perform this, if your foot is slightly behind and your knee is in-front of your toes, you can be adding extra stress on the knee joint. Which is what we do not want πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ -
When I train legs I put myself out of my comfort zone and I train HARD. I get nervous, I push until sometimes I can’t go anymore. But this is what I have noticed gets results πŸ’ͺ🏻 # - Building my glutes has always been a big challenge for me, so make sure you do what works for YOU. As this might not work for everybody, but I guarantee if you give it a try you will get MAD domsπŸ”₯
