Mum Bum

It all starts in pregnancy, when your centre of gravity shifts and as a result your posture shifts with it.

We normal try to counterbalance this shift by thrusting our hips forward, gripping in their posterior pelvic floor – think wedgie – and tucking the tailbone under. After birth, the body thinks the posture they have maintained throughout pregnancy is the new "normal" and because the muscles have all adapted to this posture over nine months the body hangs on to the suboptimal posture after pregnancy.

So this week we are working the BUM. In case you weren't aware, your bum is pretty amazing. It helps your body stay upright, enables you to power through workouts. That's why it's so important for you to know how to get the most out of your glutes, the muscles in your posterior. The three players that make up your glutes are the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and the gluteus minimus, and we will be working all of them.
