The Gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the body, but for many it is also the most underused! We tend to use the front side of our body more in most daily activities, contributing to the atrophy of muscles in the back. This can lead to back problems as well as knee problems. And overall body imbalance.
The #ClassicalPilates method implemented at our #SanDiegoPilates studio addresses this. We regularly guide our clients through bridges, reformer squats, reformer side pushes, and other exercises to strengthen the glutes.
Then we also make sure to stretch out hip flexors in the front which become tight from so much sitting.
Getting back in balance can be easier than you think with this simple strategy.
