Why Busy Moms Need To Focus On Glute Muscles
This total body workout routine at-home places a little bit of extra emphasis on the glute muscles. Given the glutes help reduce back pain I truly believe that every mom should make them a focus (learn more about why you need strong glutes).
For this reason, this full-body workout focuses on the glutes in multiple movements (hip extension, external rotation, abduction) which is what you need for strong hips.
