A strong backside has more benefits than just looking good in a bikini. Developing strength in the gluteal muscles increases range of motion in the hips and contributes to a stronger core. They also improve posture and spine health because they play a key role in your body’s stabilization system. FlowLIFT is superior to any other yoga sculpt class in gluteal development because of the ankle weights. The added weight puts additional stress on the legs and glutes to give you a butt lift better than any plastic surgeon.
There are three sets of gluteal muscles. The gluteus maximus, gluteus minimus, gluteus medius all act as a base of support for the pelvis and hips. These hard-working muscles stabilize your femur (thighbone) in your hip socket, rotate your femur internally and externally, and draw your leg back.
Try These Yoga Sculpt Class Moves To Build a Better Booty
Side Plank Tap Out
We love this one for it’s upper body and core burn however the “tap out” with the foot is great for the glutes. Keep the leg engaged all the way up through the back of the hip to get maximum benefit as you tip the foot out and back in.
Half Moon Curls
Half moon curls will actually work both sets of glutes in different ways. The standing leg is weight bearing and engaging the booty will give you more stability. The top hip moves in and out of rotation firing up the opposite side. This one is a two for one!
This is another weight bearing move that requires balance and agility. Work on being able to float up to the knee hike and back to the lunge. This requires a combination of glute and core strength that will develop the deeper layers of both areas. Keep the spine long and the belly drawing in as you attempt this move.
The two issues that people tend to face when it comes to the glute muscles is either under-use or overuse. Under use occurs in people who live a sedentary lifestyle and sit around all the time. The butt muscles get stretched out and weak. There is also an issue with over-use such as clenching too hard in a yoga pose or when lifting weights. We want to avoid both of these scenarios and create a balance of strength and mobility for a healthy booty.
FlowLIFT moves require full body action so it’s hard to target and tax any particular group of muscles. Everything is working together to create a synergy in the body that feeds into the long, lean and functional FlowLIFT physique that people love so much about this yoga sculpt class. Both extrinsic and intrinsic muscles work together to execute the motions required to smoothly and lightly flow through the movements.
