The essence of the phenomenon of "gluteal amnesia" when the muscles lose their tone and seems to hibernate due to reduced blood flow, flattening under the weight of the rest of the body, says Meddaily.ru with reference to The Daily Mail.
The human body is a complex system. If one element fails, the others start to suffer. Therefore, from gluteal amnesia may experience pain in the lower back, hip joint, knees, bad posture, not counting the loss of muscle tone, sagging and changes in shape of the buttocks, possible injury because of weak gluteal muscles. Over time, the muscles will begin to atrophy and it will be difficult to join in the work.
Doctors explain: the gluteal muscles support the whole body work as a shock absorber during exercise. If they function incorrectly, the load is transferred to another location. To understand whether your muscle tone, easily. Just squeeze the gluteus muscle in isolation (right and left alternately). By the way, 90% of the people sitting in the wrong posture with extended hips forward. In this position affects not only the gluteus, but also the spine.
