Daily Fit 5/16/19: The Trick To Growing Your Booty
Workout Tip Of The Day: Grow Your Glutes With Barbell Sumo Deadlifts.
Why They Work: Unlike traditional deadlifts that put more emphasis on your hamstrings, Sumo deadlifts are particularly great for growing and strengthening your behind. Due to the wider stance and slightly turned-out toes in the Sumo deadlift set up, the glutes are targeted to a higher degree during this exercise. What’s more, it’s typically easier to lift heavier weights when doing Sumo deadlifts compared to traditional stiff-leg deadlifts because you’re not traveling as far from the ground. Lifting heavier weight will help with hypertrophy, which in turn will allow you to get that peach emoji booty of your dreams more quickly.
How To Do Them: Begin your Sumo deadlift by placing a loaded barbell on the ground in front of you. Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart, with your toes slightly turned out, making sure that your feet are directly underneath the barbell. Bend at the hips to grip the bar keeping your hands in line with your shoulders and on the inside of your legs. Relax your shoulders and lower your hips even more, squatting down to a 90-degree angle or slightly below, always maintaining the same grip. Look straight in front of you, keeping your chest up and shoulders down and back. Begin the movement by driving through the heels of your feet and pulling up the weight to standing, extending your hips and knees in the process — make sure that you squeeze your glutes at the top before you slowly lower the barbell back to the starting position. Repeat eight to 12 times, for three to five sets. Read on to find more exercises that’ll sculpt your behind.[Swirled]
