bend and stretch: glute 22/30...

So the latest and greatest glute exercise is a stretch - none other than the hip flexor stretch. Oh, that, I hear you all say, that's not really a glute exercise.

Well my friends some fancy pants researchers beg to differ and have shown that during this stretch the old gluteus maximus is as effective as squats in terms of muscle activation.

I dig this stretch, it feels really good on pretty much every muscle between my waist and knees. Not sure that my butt is going to be smaller from it or change appearance but its all positive folks.

And, to stretch our feel-good-about-ourselves muscle here is a little positivity to dwell on.

Enjoy the weekend xx
