Sprint Your Way to Nice Legs and a Sexy Butt! Part 1

Visitors: 924

When most people think of leg and butt exercises they think along the lines of lunges, squats and dead lifts. Doing sprints will give you great results while building your lung power. Now if you enjoy these drills then keep doing them, but try adding sprints to your routine and see what happens to your backside. Let me explain how sprinting can create an amazing looking butt in no time.

What is the Gluteal Fold???

The gluteal fold is the area where the butt meets the hamstring. If you have a well developed glute-hamstring area there would be a smooth transition between these two muscle groups. A person with less development would almost be able to hold a pencil at the junction between the hamstring and butt muscles.

Sprinting will develop this area!!!

It will amaze you how sprinting will develop definition and firm up the gluteal fold. An added benefit is that sprinting builds proportionate muscles in the legs, hips and of course the butt. I always teach sprinting over leg exercises and long-distance running. Sprinting will build definition and tone the lower body better than resistance training. Not to mention it burns more fat as well!!!

Sprinting is mainly powered by your Gluteus Maximus!!!

Jogging doesn't work this muscle to any great extent. Sprinting does a much better job at engaging this muscle hard. The glutes are the largest muscle in the body, therefore it requires a more explosive intense movement to contract this muscle hard. Sprinting involves several quick HARD contractions that really firm up this muscle.
