Getting Powerful Shapely Glutes
Gluteus maximus ACTION OF THE HAMSTRINGS AND GLUTEUS MAXIMUS WHEN SHIFTING THE PELVIS TO VERTICAL Gluteus maximus ACTION OF THE HAMSTRINGS AND GLUTEUS MAXIMUS WHEN SHIFTING THE PELVIS TO VERTICAL Straightening the torso by tilting the pelvis from front to back contracts the gluteus maximus and Comment To stretch the hamstrings, perform the stiff-legged deadlift with very light weights. The greater the weight, the more the gluteal muscles take over from the hamstrings to straighten the pelvis to vertical.
Injury depends on the duration and intensity of tissue loading as well as the characteristics of both the tissue and the interfacing support surface. Recent work has resulted in significant findings and developments. Brienza et al. (1996b) developed a system for the analysis of seat support surfaces using shape control and simultaneous measurement of applied pressures. The system has been used to investigate the biomechanical factors for predicting pressure ulcer risk (Wang et al., 1998, 2000). In a randomized control trial pressure-reducing seat cushions for elderly wheelchair users were found to reduce the incidence and severity of pressure ulcers (Geyer et al., 2001). In an investigation of the relationship between pressure ulcer incidence and buttock-seat cushion interface pressure in at-risk elderly wheelchair users showed that lower interface pressures corresponded to fewer pressure ulcers (Brienza et al., 2001).
A patient with a lesion of the sacral plexus will often present with foot drop (inability to dor-siflex the foot) or a flail foot (inability to dorsiflex or plantar flex the foot), and the differential diagnostic considerations include peroneal neuropathy, sciatic neuropathy, and lumbosacral radiculopathy. Weakness outside of the ankle dorsiflexors and foot evertors (involving tibial-innervated muscles such as tibialis posterior and gastrocnemius) indicates a lesion proximal to the peroneal nerve while weakness of gluteal muscles indicates a lesion proximal to the sciatic nerve, involving either plexus or nerve roots.
A once uncommon cause of lower back and buttock pain, sacral stress fractures are being reported now with increasing frequency in the medical literature 6,24-29,71-74 . In 1989, Volpin and colleagues 75 reported the first series of sacral stress fractures among a health population. In their study, they identified three military recruits with stress fractures of the sacral wing. Since then, there have been numerous case reports of sacral stress fractures in athletes, particularly long distance runners 24-27,29,74,76 . Because the sacral pain may radiate downward to the buttock area, patients present with vague, nonspecific lower back, buttock, or hip pain. There may be paramedian point tenderness on one side of the sacrum or sacroiliac joint. The Faber test (figure-of-four test of the lower extremity) may be positive on the ipsilateral side 6 . A hopping test in which pain is reproduced by bouncing on the leg and the affected side has been described 81 . The flamingo test (patient...
Gluteus maximus Adductor magnus Semltendlnosus Semimembranosus Gracilis Sartorius Abduction is limited by how soon the neck of the femur butts up against the rim of the acetabulum. This exercise develops the gluteus medius. It also develops the deeper gluteus minimus, whose function is the same as that of the anterior fibers of the gluteus medius. For best results, use long sets. Gluteus medius Gluteus medius Gluteus maximus Iliac crest Gluteus minimus GLUTEUS MEDIUS AND MINIMUS RAISE THE LEG LATERALLY Gluteus medius Gluteus maximus Iliac crest Gluteus minimus Lie on the side and support the head with the hand Raise the leg laterally no more than 70 degrees, keeping the knee straight. This exercise works the gluteus medius and minimus. You can vary how high you raise the leg. Hold the leg at the height of the movement for a few seconds with an isometric contraction.
S2-S4 Medial buttocks Medial buttocks, perineal, perianal region hip adductors Tibialis anterior, quadriceps, hip adductors Toe extensors, ankle dorsiflexor, everter and inverter, hip abductors Toe flexors, gastrocnemii, hamstrings, gluteus maximus None, unless S1-S2 involved
Biceps femoris, short head Semitendinosus. Gluteus maximus lumbar spine. This must be performed carefully to protect your low back. This exercise mainly develops the group of paraspinal erectors of the spine (iliocostales, longisslmus thoracis, spinalis thoracis, splenius, and semispinals capitis) and quadratus lumborum and, to a lesser degree, the gluteus maximus and the hamstrings except for the short head of the biceps femoris. Complete flexion of the torso develops the flexibility of the lumbosacral mass. Supporting the pelvis on the bench, so that the axis Is displaced to the back of the body, focuses the movement completely at the lumbosacral level but less intensely given the range of motion and the greater power of the lever arm. To increase the intensity, sustain the horizontal position of the torso at the end of the extension for a few seconds. Using an incline bench makes this exercise easier for beginners to execute.
Iliac crest Gluteus medius Tensor fascia lata Greater trochanter Gluteus maximus The squat mainly works the quadriceps, gluteal muscles, adductor group, erector spinae, abdominal muscles, and the hamstrings. Comment The squat Is one of the best exercises for developing the shape of the buttocks. To feel the working of the gluteal muscles, lower the thighs to horizontal. To feel the working of the gluteal muscles even more, lower the thighs past horizontal. However, this technique can only be performed by people with flexible ankles or short femurs. Furthermore, you must perform the complete squat carefully and avoid the tendency to round the low back, which can lead to serious Injury.
Iliac crest Gluteus medius Gluteus maximus Tensor fascia lata ANATOMY OF THE BUTTOCKS This exercise mainly works the gluteus maximus and quadriceps. Variations The bigger the step, the more the gluteus maximus of the forward leg Is used and the iliopsoas and rectus femoris of the back leg Is stretched. Iliac crest Gluteus medius Gluteus maximus Tensor fascia lata ANATOMY OF THE BUTTOCKS Gluteus medius Gluteus maximus
External oblique Gluteus medius Anterior superior iliac spine Tensor fascia lata Greater trochanter Gluteus maximus Pyramidalis, under the aponeurosis Fascia lata, Iliotiblal band Quadriceps, vastus lateralis Quadriceps, vastus intermedius Head of fibula Patella gluteal muscles In weight training, herniations usually occur at the lumbar level and most frequently between the third and fourth or between the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae. The pain Is dull and deep, sometimes accompanied by swelling and tingling. The pain is located in the middle of the back or more often to one side, radiating to the gluteal muscles, pelvis, and pubis and down the leg following the path of the sciatic nerve (hence the name sciatica to define this type of pain). Generally, disc herniations are spontaneously reabsorbed, and the pain eventually disappears. But in some cases, the bulge in the disc does not disappear and continues to press painfully against the nerves, or a detached piece of...
