Outstanding Exercise Selection for the "Posterior Chain"
I was speaking with a female client the other day about how so many people "don't have an ass." That is, they "lack glute development" from sitting WAY too much (i.e. at work, in the car, on the couch, etc...) Since improving the appearance of their backside is often times a goal with my female clients, one exercise we implement are Deadlift variations. A specific variation I love is the 2-arm/1-leg Stiff-Legged Deadlift. In the video above, Neghar Fonooni demonstrates this exercise impressively. Note how much weight she can handle yet she isn't "big" and overly muscular like so many women fear of becoming from strength training.
Take home point: include this, and other variations of Deadlifting for killer glutes and to look your best this summer in the new bikini, "skinny jeans," etc...
