The #1 Secret to Menopausal Weight Loss – and No One Tells You this – until you're injured, is stronger glutes! It's not just vanity though yes, you'll look better in your jeans!
Your gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimum together make the "glutes" and for some of us they've got gluteal amnesia!
If you aren't firing them, you're more prone to injuries of not only the hip, but your lower back and your knees. You can't go as fast, or use as much resistance and do the things that support weight loss and a healthy metabolism.
These major muscles (the gluteus maximus is the largest in the body) are so important. Don't sit on this! (pun intended) Start with these small exercises no matter what else you're doing! A Better Butt… is not only going to boost your rearview, it can prevent injury and help you age better!
Are you tired of settling for weight gain and fatigue just because you’re approaching or have already passed age 50? You can still get in the best shape of your life, no matter your age!

This is a super easy exercise, no equipment needed, to target lazy glutes, as long as you can bear weight on your shoulder. If not, try the clams alone from the floor. More support https://www.flippingfifty.com/5dayflip
Happy New Year. Thank you so much. I’ll be doing this routine. Mat+Wrkout clothes. What small pre-wkout meal would be best for a 15-30 min wkout. I’m gonna set small goals to make big changes.
I know there’s no magic bullet to fitness, but I like this way of building in targeted strength exercises like this. The stronger I get, the better I sleep: waking up less from lower back pain.
It’s the foundation… it’s not the endpoint!!
Is stronger glutes the secret?
To just about anything else you want… yes
