July – Booty July

july-national-fitness-holiday-booty-julyEarlier this year we talked about the power of the hips but any guess as to what it is that powers them? What what? Yes, the butt! Which is why an entire month has been dedicated to focusing on making the most of your booty. The booty also stabilizes your legs so if one of your glute muscles isn’t firing properly or is weaker than its counterpart then you could have all sorts of problems ranging from back pain to arthritis. Get your booty in balance this month – it might take some self-diagnosis and supplemental work but you’ll surely be happy with the gains you see and will hopefully garner at least one unsolicited booty compliment.
