When you stick to a program by the letter and do everything your trainer tells you, you expect results, right?
Well, what if you discovered all your hard work was causing you to be MORE prone to injury, was having ZERO effect on the shape of your butt and was leaving you with LESS strength and power?
As the engine for almost every lower body and back movement you make, they deliver raw strength and power… but only when properly activated.
It’s like you’re sitting behind the wheel of a muscle car. You have all that raw power and strength lying dormant ready for you to unleash… but you don’t know how to get past 30.
When you discover the right way to unlock your glutes, everything changes. You can put the pedal to the metal on your gains.
And you know when you’ve trained your glutes the right way, as you’re the proud owner of a strong, round, healthy butt.
I’ll explain in a moment how you’ve been misinformed about the right way to build strong glutes…
The "Squat Myth" has, for too long, left millions of men and women frustrated at their lack of progress, struggling to grow their behind.
Ignore those who say a strong, rounded butt is pure vanity. It’s a sign of strength and good health.
Weak glutes are often the "hidden" factor in most injuries, including poor posture, lower back pain, knee pain, hamstring strains, muscle imbalances and lower body injury.
Ever suffered a long-term injury that simply won’t go away no matter how much you treat the area of pain? It could be a cause of weak glutes.
A saggy or non-existent butt can be embarrassing. But when you’re denied a strong, round butt it’s a reminder every time you catch yourself in the mirror that your efforts are producing zero effects, leaving you frustrated and angry.
When your glutes lose strength, it affects your whole body. Other muscles are forced to compensate, causing imbalances and severe health consequences.
Everything flows from this area. Whether you’re walking, running, climbing, jumping, stepping, sitting or even just standing without moving, your glutes are involved. The stronger your glutes, the more efficient your movement.
If this is a SHOCK to you, don’t worry – I’ve got your back. I’ve unlocked the secret to sculpting powerful glutes and a strong butt, and in a moment I’ll share it with you.
I’m Brian Klepacki, MS, CSCS – aka Coach Brian – a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist with a Masters Degree in Exercise Science.
I’ve dedicated the last 16 years of my career to working at the cutting edge of training and exercise science.
As a Functional Movement Specialist, I know it’s crucial to separate fact from fiction when it comes to training and performance. Step behind the headlines and you get the real story.
I know what works. I’m in the trenches using trial and error and applying proven principles every day working out with athletes, body builders and fitness models.
The Compound is my testing ground working with elite athletes applying the latest science to improve their performance, health, and wellbeing. Every day, I put these principles into action.
You see, everyone BELIEVES they have powerful glutes. But often their weakness is masked by strength in other areas. As soon as you isolate the glutes… then the realization hits.
Body builders who spend their days squatting, doing lunges and deadlifting go to pieces when I put them on glute-specific movements. They’ve built a mansion on foundations of sand.
When they discover how weak they really are, they can barely look at me. But it happens all the time.
Compare this to sprinters who train at The Compound. They have a laser focus on glute-specific movements. When faced with the same program, their glutes deliver raw, unbridled power and speed. If you want to understand how to explode your glutes, look at these guys.
The problem isn’t how hard you workout. It may not even be your genetics or your diet. It certainly isn’t your commitment, although it may feel like you’re trying everything and getting nowhere.
But it turns out they don’t. They rely on routines based on decades-old research and training principles, instead of combining the latest science with, you know, REAL WORLD experience working with athletes.
The worst are Instagram fitness “celebrities” giving out glute advice based on a flawed understanding of human physiology.
They misunderstand the muscle. They misunderstand how to activate the glutes. They misunderstand fundamental training principles.
(Sure, they may have a great butt… but they’re 20 years old, have never had kids, have great genetics and may be taking extra-curricular supplements. But, hey, let’s not mention that…)
That’s why I had to speak out. To fight back against the misinformation and myths that some trainers keep pushing on you.
The glutes are made up of three muscles, the Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus. Each plays a role in stabilizing, supporting and mobilizing the legs, hips and lower half of the body.
Without getting too technical, there are three planes of motion glute muscles need to experience to grow.
If you want shapely glutes, you have to train all THREE planes of motion to get fullness – vertical, horizontal and rotational.
Most people do squats and deadlifts which are vertical movements. You still need to do lateral movements and twisting movements.
Here’s what complicates it. There isn’t one exercise that targets all three. To guarantee you target every part of each muscle you need three different exercise strategies in all three different planes of motion.
To fully develop your glutes, your training needs to focus on two elements: 1) glute-specific movements and 2… Read more…
