Best Butt-Shaping Exercise Ever!

Filed under: Exclusives!FitnessGym TimeBody

Many women consider their butt a problem area and they attack it relentlessly every time they step into the gym. However, if the perfect butt is your goal, you'd better take advantage of the most effective exercises to score!

According to Jim Smith, CSCS, of Diesel Strength and Conditioning, strengthening your glutes not only gives you a nicer looking booty, but can help to improve your posture and alleviate back pain as well.

To take advantage of all the benefits stronger glutes offer, he recommends the hip thrust which activates the muscles even more than conventional lunges.

Check out his simple "how to" below and watch the video above for an easy to follow demonstration to perform a proper hip thrust at the gym or at home!

It is performed on the edge of a bench (or off the end of your couch in your home), with your shoulders on the bench and your feet firmly planted on the floor. Bend at the waist while keeping your torso in astraight line and then extend upward locking your hips with a powerful glute contraction. Repeat for 3-4 sets of 8-12 repetitions. Hold each contraction at the top for 3-5 seconds. In the video you'll see two hip thrust variations and a simple way to overload the movement as you start to get stronger.

Thanks for the tip, Jeff!

The Hulk Hurt His Back Being A Pansy!

Filed under: Hulk Hogan

We can laugh about it since he seems to be on the mend…and because it is pretty damn funny!

Big, macho pro-wrestler Hulk Hogan was admitted to the hospital over the Labor Day weekend after aggravating some of his old back injuries. We weren't sure what exactly he had done to hurt himself again, but according to the Hulk himself, it didn't take much.

Hulk told sources that on the day before he was rushed to the hospital, he and his GF Jennifer were enjoying a stroll on the beach, watching the waves, listening to the birds and…picking up seashells! And there it is!

Hulk explains that the constant bending finally threw his back out of whack and the next morning, he could "barely move." His doctors have told him they believe he has suffered a tear to one of his muscles, but they will know more when more tests are run.

Poor guy! We hope he feels better soon!

And when he does get released, we hope he will lay off the strenuous activity!

Poor guy!

Sources are reporting that Hulk Hogan was rushed to a local hospital in Clearwater, FL. this morning because of "excruciating back pain."

His girlfriend called 911 after the Hulk was unable to get out of bed this morning. He reportedly has had a rough few days prior to this and we all know that this isn't a new issue. He's had several surgeries involving his back.

We're sending him a lot of well wishes and we hope he feels better soon!

It was earlier reported that Hulk Hogan had severe back pain and pals were unsure whether or not he would ever wrestle again.

But reports are saying now that he's recovering well and has returned home after a successful spinal surgery earlier this week.

Sources say he underwent a four-hour operation to remove bone growths that had come loose from his spine, which was causing the wrestler's severe pain.

Ouch! That sounds painful!

We hope you get better, bb!

Hulk Hogan May Never Wrestle Again After Back Injury

Filed under: Hulk Hogan

wenn548804455.jpg

According to wrestling legend Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan is currently dealing with intense back pain that could keep him from ever going back into the ring.

Flair, who is also a member of the TNA Wrestling roster with Hogan, is hoping that his one time rival will overcome his injury, saying:

"His heart is in the ring but he has health issues and at this point in time they are overwhelming. His back has been really bad. He's got an artificial knee, an artificial hip, which don't bother him at all. But his back is causing everything to hurt.

Hopefully, when he gets his back fixed he'll be fine. We might still see him in the ring if his health issues get resolved. I respect him immensely but on some things we agree to disagree. It's the business."

Looks like it might be time to throw in the towel?

Hang in there, buddy!
