Sounds kind of superficial and maybe have you thinking … yea no thanks. Butt (haha) hear me out.
Glute (booty) training for HEALTH! YES!! For health!!
While it is true most women train the glutes for aesthetic purposes, glute training conveys numerous health benefits that can have a profound impact on your quality of life.
First, training your glutes is a very efficient way to shed unwanted fat on the body, since the glutes are the largest muscle on the body and control a wide range of functional movements.
Training your glutes burns more calories than training other body parts. This causes you to “ recomp” which means that you build muscle while simultaneously losing fat, assuming your diet doesn’t change much.
This helps you burn fat overall, including areas of the body that typically like to store fat, like the hips, thighs, and belly.
Secondly, training your glutes works your muscular, skeletal, and cardiovascular systems. Just as training your glutes helps you lose weight and works your cardiovascular system, it also develops and strengthens your bones & muscles, which is very important to your health. As we age, we lose bone density and muscle, and as our bone density diminishes and muscles weaken, we become more susceptible to injury and pain.
So how do we combat this? It’s simple: by doing resistance training, or weight-bearing exercises. This is how you set yourself up to better handle the wear and tear of life. To put it another way, you’re setting yourself up to have solid, well-equipped knees, hips, and lower back.
Strong Glutes, an Antidote to Pain & Injury.
An important variant in managing and preventing pain and injury is having a strong, well-balanced frame. If one muscle is weak and underdeveloped, other muscles have to compensate by working harder. This in turn can lead to injury. For example, de-conditioned glutes often lead to overuse of the back and legs that put you at risk of injury.
In these modern times, exercise serves to support and work our bodies in the ways we are NOT using them.
