Glutes. How many times have you heard that word? There has become an undeniable obsession in our generation to try to get the best shape for our booty. It has become so crazy that people opened up butt gyms that only focus on that body part.
Sometimes we focus so much on just the glutes that we forget to build up the rest of our bodies. But hey it is not totally our fault! We hear so many coaches say, “Do this and you will get that sexy booty you always wanted.”
Some people assume that all that is needed to reach their booty goals is to just squat and that after a week or so they’ll be good to go. But that’s not true.
I understand that we sometimes feel motivated by — or envious of — some Instagram influencers. I’m just here to remind you that it is important to build up your whole body, not just one part, in order to avoid back and knee problems, and keep your body healthy and strong.
In this article, I am going to share with you a glute workout that I personally added to my workout routine. This workout is inspired by the Glute Guy BRET CONTRERAS.
