All About the Booty

We’re not talking about pirate treasure.  These are your hip extensors, and they’re going to get worked Thursday.  A strong, toned rear end is important for explosive hip extension, and therefore elite athleticism.

Sir Mix-a-Lot may not have been an NFL scout, but he certainly had the right mindset for drafting wide outs.  Want to run faster, jump higher, lift heavier things, and be generally more functional?  Then you need a strong butt.  We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, hip extension is key to almost every movement we practice.  Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, power lifting, and everything in between are primarily hip driven and posterior powered.  As you’re jumping, lunging, and sweating tomorrow don’t just feel the burn, embrace it and be proud of your powerful booty.

  1. Press: 25kg which was previously my 3 rep max

    WOD: 9:43 with 10kg plate and 24″ box. That first box jump after lunges was AWFUL, it felt so jello-y it made me laugh.
