Strengthening your glutes does so much more than help you look good in your jeans. It can actually reduce fatigue and back pain, protect the knee joints, and create overall strength in the rest of your body. The glutes are our largest muscle group, and virtually every movement carried out by the lower body requires their activation.
Butt-lifting booty expert Caroline Jordan recently launched a series of BOOTYcamp classes, letting you combine your workout with a night out where you’ll wake up with sore muscles instead of a hangover. This month, Caroline is bringing her popular BOOTYcamp class back with a remix – Abs and A$$. In case you’re on the fence, here are the top three reasons not to miss BOOTYcamp this July 20th:
- Do It Like Beyonce – think that’s all genetic? Think again. Queen B works her glutes in sessions with her trainer, by dancing, and with squats and lunges. Your glutes produce four distinct actions: extending the hips, swinging the leg outward, rotating the leg laterally, and tilting the pelvis backward. Strong glutes increase your force and power during everything from sprinting, jumping, and squatting to climbing, swinging, and cutting from side to side. A more powerful butt will allow you to run faster, cycle stronger, and power walk up the fifth flight of stairs without losing your breath. Or, you know, dance all night on stage in 6-inch heels.
- Increase Energy – Your glutes are stabilizers and support your entire body during both daily activities and athletic endeavors. Keeping your glutes strong gives you more stamina to go harder, faster and longer – burning more calories during exercise and firing up that crucial “afterburn.”
- #SocialSweat – Because who wants to do squats and weights alone? Sweating with a friend (or a whole nightclub of friends) holds you accountable, keeps your mind sharp and focused, and enables you to look forward to your workouts, not dread them. Besides, that post-workout meal is more fun with a group.
Bottom line (pun intended)? A strong butt = a strong life. Don’t miss BOOTYcamp: The Remix on July 20th with Caroline Jordan at City Nights in San Francisco. Grab your squad and register now – your butt will love you for it.
