    Hammy/ glute help.....






    Hello.....

    I wanna start doing Hamstring/Glute exercises, such as the GLUTE machine, squats, and deadlifts.
    How effective are these exercises using barbells instead Of the bar on the shoulders?

    And using Real light weight on the Glute machine? Is it really working that area of the body even though u are not utilizing heavy weight?


    Thank you,

    Cinna

    I think you mean how effective are " Dumbells " instead of using the barbell on your shoulder. Umm.. well your best bet would to use a barbell when squating or deadlifting... because you need a barbell to perform these movements! If you wanna use dumbbells and like hold them at your side if its more comfortible -- I'd suggest you do lunges. These are great for your glutes and hams.

    And for the second question -- Yes, your still working the muscle. Just concentrate on holding the contraction and more importantly contracting + flexing your glutes.


    P.S - You're a damn good lookin girl.


    Goodluck.

    Lunges are great for the glutes also, barbell or dumbbell.
