Wondering why your deadlift and squat numbers continue to dwindle? You could be neglecting to train a key body part of the equation, the glutes. Instead of expecting to load up the rack every training session, try this workout 1-2 days per week for 2-3 weeks then return to your traditional training, you'll be amazed with the strength gains you'll see after focusing heavily on this specific region. Beware: Sitting down and getting up could be painful.
