The Glute Tri-Set

Exercise of the Week

We’re not supposed to talk about this because it might sound
“gay” or unmanly, but it’s actually quite the opposite: bodybuilding
for your butt.

No, we’re not talking about posterior chain work to increase athletic
performance. We’re talking about pure glute training to make that sucker
rounder, firmer, and (dare we say it?) sexier.

You see, many scientist-types believe that a muscular male butt is a
breeding signal, much like other secondary sex characteristics. In other
words, when women see a powerful set of glutes on a male, they can’t
help but get sexually aroused because this triggers an innate urge to
breed. Muscular male glutes exude a sense of overall health and thrusting
power
. (Wink-wink, jab-jab.)

Last time we checked, ain’t nothing “unmanly” about making women need
a fresh pair of panties when you reach down for the broccoli at the grocery
store.

So, want a quick way to build your butt? Use Coach Charles Poliquin’s
glute tri-set. Poliquin originally developed this killer routine for
his alpine skiers (the glutes really come into play when taking compressions
and turns), but it works great for bodybuilding purposes, too.

Here’s the tri-set:

A) Full squats x 6 reps

squats

Rest 10 seconds, then…

B) Lunges x 12 per leg

Lunges

Rest 10 seconds, then…

C) Dumbbell deadlifts x 25

Dumbbell deadlifts

We’ve found two ways to incorporate this into your leg training:

1) Perform one set of this tri-set, then do an abbreviated version of
your usual leg workout.

2) Perform three sets of the tri-set and call it a day. Seriously,
your lower body training is done after three sets of this bad
boy.

Now, go train that breeding signal, stud.
