Or Are You Sitting On It Giving You Back and Knee Trouble?

In today’s fast-paced world, many people are claiming to be working their butt off to stay ahead. But what they are really doing is sitting on their butt most of the day and that may be contributing to their back and knee problems.

The butt muscles are ( or should be), the strongest muscle group in the body. If you are not using your glutes and they are getting weak and flabby, you’re putting a greater demand on your back and knees that can lead to pain, stiffness and immobility. These glute muscle are important!
