There’s nothing worse than feeling the burn in your back rather than your booty when you’re trying to build up your butt in the gym. (Seriously, WTF?) Working your glutes can actually help ease back pain, but not all glute moves are created equal, says trainer and physical therapist @drlauramiranda. “When your back is in pain, the way to safely strength train is to focus on movement patterns that reinforce a neutral lumbar and thoracic spine (that’s your shoulders down to the top of your butt), and leg movements that don’t pull your low back and pelvis out of alignment,” Miranda says. The good news is, the split squat checks all those boxes—but if your back is killing you, you may want to skip the glute bridge to avoid hyper-extending the lumbar spine and potentially aggravating the pain further. #FitnessFaceoff 💪: @jen_ator 🎨: @amanda_bex

Whip up a batch of these Yerba Mate Energy Bites to reach for when the afternoon slump hits! “Cashews and almond butter provide plenty of healthy fats and also bring in some protein to add to what the oats contribute,” says registered dietitian Keri Glassman (@nutritiouslifeofficial). “Then, we add the secret ingredient: Argentinian yerba mate. Yerba mate has energy-boosting powers that are similar to coffee’s, and it’s also filled with vitamins and minerals.”

- 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
- 1/2 cup raw cashews

- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup almond butter
.
DIRECTIONS
