Are you satisfied with your butt? Does your butt need a little work? Well, I have created an ultimate butt burning workout for you to strengthen, tighten, and tone those glutes.
The list of exercises ranges from a single-leg leg press to a split squat jump. Each exercise is hand picked to target different areas of the glutes and hamstrings.
The glutes are made up of three gluteal muscles: gluteus maximus (largest and most superficial of the three), gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus. The hamstrings (posterior thigh muscles) are made up of three muscles as well: semitendinosus, semimembranosus, and the biceps femoris. (more…)
While my folks were visiting LA for the 4th of July I took them horseback riding in the Santa Monica Mountains. We rode trails by the infamous “Hollywood” sign and the views were absolutely breath taking. After our three hour adventure through the mountains my legs, butt, and back were tight and I could tell that I was going to be sore a few days later.
So, I have put together a pre-horseback riding workout routine for you (just in case you get the wild hair to ride as well). Today the focus is on a leg workout and I recommend performing three sets of 20 repetitions at a medium weight. (more…)
Well, it’s definitely summer time and that means golf season is in full affect. Golf originated in Scotland in the 12th century and has been very popular ever since. I strongly believe that golf is a game of mental toughness, natural ability or skill, and a little bit of luck. I play once or twice a year so I am definitely no expert, but I have trained my share of golfers and have had great success with them. (more…)
The Hamstings (back of thigh) are made up of three muscles, the Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosus, and the Semimembranosus. The Hamstrings are fast twitch muscle fibers and respond well to low reps and powerful movements. The main functions of the Hamstrings are knee flexion (bringing the heel up towards the buttocks) and hip extension (moving the leg to the rear/backwards).
