Learn how to load your hips and grow your 🍑
If you want to build a strong, big, and/or beautiful butt, you have to understand and be able to flex your hips and load your glutes properly. Without a thorough understanding and feel for this, building the fluted is going to be difficult and movements like squats and deadlifts will be less effective for strength, growth or rehab purposes.
Too often I see people lifting their toes in an effort to shift their weight back and isolate the glutes or hamstrings. While I understand the logic, in reality it doesn't increase isolation, but does decrease balance, stability, and increases chances of injury.
Instead of lifting your toes (often times a compensation for proper hip flexion), learn how to flex your hips, and load your posterior chain so you can build a backside to be proud of. Check out the videos to learn more about loading the hips and shifting your weight, so that you're not wasting time in the gym and your effort and hard work is rewarded.
The last video shows you how most lower body exercises can be adjusted in intent and execution to ensure that your glutes are the muscles doing the bulk of the work.
