Many don’t know, but inactiveness of the gluteus maximus can affect the balance between hips and knees, poor joint knee activity, and even reduces stability in the ankle area. However, strengthening those muscles reduces stress on the spine, as they carry a part of the load too. Sport professionals also agree that strengthening of the gluteus maximus muscles increases explosiveness.
The best way to strengthen the posterior muscles is a hip thrust exercise, which can be performed with different equipment, but the best job on developing the glutes is the Hip Thruster, which allows the use of resistance bands and / or additional weights to increase the resistance.
The Royal hip thruster can be adjusted to the athlete’s size, moreover it even has four mountings for adjusting the resistance bands. It has two small wheels to move it easily around the room and to store it in a vertical position after the end of the exercise.
