The #1 Forgotten Muscle You Need To Stop Neglecting

Learn How To Immediately Increase Your Sex Drive And Amplify Your Gains And Strength

It’s fundamentally known that once you approach the age of 30, testosterone levels begin to dip, and if that goes, so does your libido. Your hormones dictate literally how effective your metabolism runs and without sufficient amounts, a cascade of unfavorable symptoms occur that derail your entire life.

Luckily, there’s a lot you can do to keep them up, like testosterone, so you don’t have to sprint for the Viagra. Your diet and lifestyle has a tremendous impact on sustaining adequate testosterone levels, arguably more so than the reality of biological aging.

Putting diet aside, the single most important thing you can do to prevent the hormone downfall is to lift heavy ass weights.

But, if you want to keep the fire burning in the bedroom (and stay strong AF), you need to take it one step further.

Train your glutes.

Hard and often.


Because they are a massive muscle group, proximal to the genital area and evoke a surge of hormones like testosterone and growth hormone. It’s no accident that you feel a bit more sexually frustrated after a hard leg day. I can speak for myself, as well as a lot of my clients.

Hip bridges, hip thrusts, glute bridges, whatever you want to cal them: they’re no joke.

Especially when it involves a ton of glute work revolved around volume and intensity.

You’re probably thinking, “um, I do train legs and glutes. I squat, bro.”

Okay, well not so fast homie… That’s the issue. We’ve become conditioned to believe that this is the best or even a good way to stimulate your glutes – magazines and social media are responsible for that.

Honestly, I put squats at the bottom of the “glute exercise totem pole” when I write programs.

This comes down to body mechanics and understanding the muscles at work during movements.

I’ll just be blunt and say it here…

Squats are hardly the best exercise for growing your glutes.

In fact, I’ll go so far as to say they suck for growing your glutes, getting them strong and especially cranking up your sex drive.

Sure, they are recruited in the exercise, but not as much as you think. Research has shown that 35% of the glute muscles are activated during the squat, whereas the quads take up 87%.

I’m certainly not suggesting to toss out the squat because it’s a phenomenal exercise, but should it remain the number one exercise for glute stimulation, like many believe?

Absolutely not.

In actuality, the ideal exercises for better glute stimulation and recruitment are the ones that don’t involve the quads as much.

These are the two most effective exercises for maximal glute activation and hormone amplification:

1) Hip Thrust/Glute Bridge
2) Deadlift

The deadlift blows squats out of the water. If you do the movement correctly, you will feel the difference. Either way, the deadlift and hip thrust take precedence. And I’ve seen it in work wonders in my clients.

The deadlift has been around for as long as lifters have wanted to become bigger, faster, and stronger.

Of course, there’s a plethora of other exercises that complement the hip thrust and deadlift to augment your sex drive.

It’s unnecessary to re-invent the wheel with glute training by creating novel exercises – some of which you may have seen on social media – when they do little if anything to stimulate the glutes. It’s not complicated and doesn’t need to be.

One missing piece to the puzzle here to full glute activation and thus, full sex drive potential is this unbelievably super common lack of neuronal firing or communication between the central nervous system and the muscles.

Basically, it’s like your muscles being in hibernation mode. They need to be “awakened” in order to function to their full potential.

If you can’t prime your muscles, like your glutes, you will notice an absence of the “mind-muscle connection,” thereby leaving all the gains on the table.

My ebook Glute Max teaches you simple and quick activation drills with demonstration videos that will help “turn on” your glutes so you can be ready to go.

This is mandatory before each workout; even in those like myself, who have good glute activation because it helps reinforce the neural firing and prepares you for the intensity ahead.

I’ll even give you a sample routine I designed for the floor barbell glute bridge that you can try today. This is in the style of the 12-week program in the ebook. Again, nothing revolutionary here, but the fulcrum here is more about the tempo, volume and proper form.

Floor Barbell Glute Bridge:

Warm-up sets: 2×20 reps with the barbell; 1×10 reps with 50% of the first working set weight.
working sets: 12, 8, 5, 5, 3 reps (1 second squeeze/hold at the top of the movement).

Rest for 2-3 minutes between sets.
*After the last working set, rest 1 minute then use 50% of the weight used for the 12 rep set and do 1 rep where you are simply holding the top position of the exercise making sure to squeeze the glutes hard for 20 seconds.

This routine is designed mainly for increasing hormones 10-fold, but it’s fundamental for preventing back pain – something we guys face as we get older. So, if that’s something you’re managing, better work on that now!

Besides the hip thrust and deadlift, there’s a series of other phenomenal glute exercises:

• Back Extensions
• Glute Bridge
• Cable Pull-Throughs
• Romanian Deadlifts

Your largest muscles are in your legs, so naturally you’ll secrete a torrent of IGF-1 and testosterone, which means sex drive gains.

Obviously this is paramount for protein synthesis, but there’s virtually no downside to having a healthy sex drive. In fact, I will say that from a clinical standpoint, an absent sex drive is a problem that affects your overall health in numerous ways.

So for the sake of wellness, even if for some strange reason you don’t desire an active sex life, don’t let it get to that point.

K, cool?

Now, listen. One exercise like I described above isn’t gonna magically resolve the sex drive dilemma. It comes down to proper programming.

The truth is, you need all 3 of the following adaptations to fully keep your hormones high:

A) Strength
B) Time Under Tension
C) Volume

And while all this may sound like it’s exclusively for females, it’s highly valuable for males as well.

I mean, I’ve built these conclusions from my own research and experimentation.

Trust me here… I’ve been around the block or two when it comes to proper glute training and getting your hormones up to par.

When it comes to taking care of your health and your hormones, it’s never too late to start, and the sooner you do, the better. It’s actually true when they say, “if you don’t use it, you lose it.”
