Thanks to social media, there seems to be an increased focus on building your backside. With that goal comes the quest for better, more creative glutes exercises because sometimes you need a break from squats. Not that squats don’t train your glutes, it’s just that they don’t fully isolate them, and unless you have excellent hamstring flexibility, many times squats end up being more of a quad and back exercise.
With the arrival of summer and fall comes racing season. Marathons (half and full), triathlons, obstacle course races (Spartan, ToughMudder, Rugged Maniac) abound, and if you’re planning to race in one of these, you need to make sure your cardio and your legs are strong enough to get you to the finish line.
