How long have you heard promotions about “Buns of Steel”? It is important now more than ever. Besides aesthetics, strong glutes provide us with the following:
1. Support system for the core, low back, & pelvic girdle equals better posture
2. Structure for your outer thigh muscles to be supported and not rub against your hip or leg bones which can cause Bursitis or IT Band inflammation.
3. Injury Prevention & Decrease Pain
4. Better stability & overall body strength help with balance
Strong Glutes can provide added support for knees and ankles too. Remember the song, “the hip bone’s connected to the thigh bone …”? It goes for muscles as well. Our whole body is amazing, but it needs exercise to stay strong, especially as we get older. To stay independent and active, we can’t sit on our Tush all day. Get up and get moving with cardio, focused strength training, flexibility and balance exercises to maintain your health. Incorporate Integrated Positional Therapy (IPT) techniques for stretching & flexibility. It provides avenues for limiting pain & discomfort. Contact me for a free 15 minute consultation.
