There's more to your butt than you think you know but most people aren't so concerned or keen to know about the science or facts about it, other than how can you get a butt that looks awesome. Here are some 17 things you should know:
1. You have three muscles in your butt - Gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluetues minimus.
2. If you want a bigger butt, you'll need to make those three muscles grow.
3. The appearance of your butt has a lot to do with how much fat is covering your glutes.
4. If you're working out to get a Jen Selter-butt, you'll have to lose body fat first.
5. If you want to lose fat, you'll need fewer calories than you need to maintain your current weight.
6. You'll need to eat less carbs and more protein.
7. Don't diet.
8. A regular scale won't help you. You'll need to know the weight you're losing is fat instead.
9. Running, yoga, pilates, are overrated for glute development.
10. Run up the stairs, or up the hill. Repeat. This is the best way to target your glutes.
11. Unfortunately, you have to do more than just squat to get this:
12. Do glute strength training with bodyweight exercises and hip thrusts.
13. Add more weight when your glutes become stronger.
14. Train at least three to five days per week.
15. Take a lot of rest. Glutes need to rest.
16. Make sure you have a healthy expectation of the results.
17. This butt didn't just happen. You'll need discipline.

So, a roomy work bag is a necessity. That work bag doesn’t have to be a standard leather briefcase, though.

If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
