I wanted to take this opportunity to express my 32-year professional opinion regarding some bo...oty/ glute exercises I have seen becoming extremely popular within the last 2- years. My name is Dave Parise MES CPT and I have owned and operated a fitness center, for 32 years. I am director of Education for Fit Pros Personal Training school / Academy. I do expert witness testimony in fitness and sports related injuries.

As I flip through social media on any given day, I find an endless supply of pseudo “experts” preaching their training methods to the masses. And while there can be some useful and often motivational content in there, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of frequently contradictory advice.

One of the biggest challenges I see is that many of the people doing the so-called teaching lack real qualifications and are just sharing some cool stuff they invented or most likely saw in the gym one day. These are genetically gifted Pro Bikini models, or Brazilian divas showing their booties in the latest fashion that extenuates / outlines the booty to the extreme peach-ability!
To me it seems every month someone has discovered the new “secret” move to building the perfect glutes. Woman and gym goers start the “monkey see monkey do” and keep chasing the goal, without any real understanding of the process to get there.
I am no expert; however, I have certified over 400 trainers, produced over 1000 exercise videos, was inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame, taught anatomy and kinesiology based on anatomical function for the last 32 years.

Here’s the challenge: Besides you being married to a 🙄 particular exercise... I really can’t start to name all the bad, unsafe, ridicules exercises that woman do for the hopes of a Kardashian booty. (like turning your leg sideways as you sit sideways in a leg press…. REALLY? LOL. The “thinking it works and will cause no harm-based on an individuals perception and sensation” seems to be the wishful uplifting experience.

There is one MOVE 🙄🧐 I will touch upon:
As I hack into action the infamous REVERSE HACK SQUAT is by far the most dangerous, biomechanically inefficient move. First and foremost, ladies if I may 😇 think of the machine. The hack squat machine is a guided, machine -has a predictable outcome- as it travels up and down, it moves in one path of motion based on the rods, track, bearings etc. What does that tell you? It says one size fits all. TRUTH: One size fits none! The machine was designed to position you face out, thus the pads fit properly on top of your shoulders…as you head, and neck stay in their strong position (Neutral) your back falls against the back-rest pad to support the lumbar spine, as load translates nicely through the legs.
What do you do? You take a machine that tries to mimic a down and back hip motion (squat) then you turn around and face the other way with your butt in the air… as your neck is compromised in flexion (weak) your mid thoracic spine rounded, all the force originates into your low-back, as it tries to maintain congruency. And to think based on your (perception, sensation) that at the top end if you squeeze your glutes, LOL AKA (hyperextension-sensation) you will miraculously have peach-ability - (yea a feel a burn when I light a fire). Sorry not happening.

Did you ever see that guy or girl who has (genetics) amazing arms? They do 4 different exercises for their triceps. One of these exercises has no function or purpose, yet they still have amazing arms! Guess what ladies three of those 4-exercises are great and ONE DID NOT So, my point is the reverse hack squat works in this way only.

****If you bend a paper clip back and forth it eventually breaks due to metal fatigue. In the spine, the matrix binding the disc collagen fibers together will fatigue and delamination occur. The nucleus starts to work itself through these breached delamination with repeated bends. Furthermore, the mechanics of the joints being in this reverse position have been disrupted and this will generally cause more load on the facet joints. They will become arthritic within a few years. This arthritic cascade is accelerated by more stress and the spine will never be the same. So here you are thinking the booty will build, shape, peach-out yet your using less hip strength and increasing the hydraulic pressure on the posterior part of the disc. “Butt I feel it” 🤣🤣🤣 This increases collagen delamination and the risk of a bulging disc.

During a NORMAL hack squat your torso remains erect and you contract your erector spinae (lower-back muscles) to maintain normal spinal curvature throughout the range of motion. ASK YOURSELF can you do this reversed?
A reverse hack squat works in a fixed angle which is not the way our bodies work, or the way our hips and glutes function. Since you're locked into a machine, critical stabilizer muscles (which help keep your joints safe) are not engaged.

I don't recommend that a human being performs a reverse hack squat! Thinking they are choosing anything other than “LOOK AT MY NICE ASS”

Despite the ability to obtain 2000 more double clicks, and 300 comments! its failure to engage intellect and makes you no better than the other better booty.

That’s the bottom line Ladies. Choose a better alternative there are so many other that engage the glutes in hip extension concentrically…. THATS WHAT THEY DO!

Body Building Myths That Must Die!

Every culture has its myths and bodybuilding is no exception. Like most myths, most are nine parts fantasy and part truth, though of course, some myths have no truth to them at all. I have spent much of my career attempting to expose myths surrounding bodybuilding and topics that relate to it, such as drugs, nutrition and supplementation etc.
