As my time controlling the blog is coming to a close today I thought I’d end it with a BANG. I hereby throw down the gauntlet of “The Butt Test” to any and all members willing to give it a try.
**Note: This is not something I made up. It is REAL. Again Faster even did a video of it for CrossFit HQ, watch it here.
Rules/Regulations: Technically speaking, the butt test is a simple way of measuring the Gluteus Maximus muscles on any given athlete (how big your booty is).
THE PREPARATION: Have test subject lie on the ground, face down.
THE TEST: Load a barbell with standard size bumper plates and roll said barbell over the athlete being tested.
THE VERDICT: Check to see if the barbell makes contact with the glutes.
If it makes contact with the glutes – CONGRATULATIONS! You have passed the butt test.
If it does not make contact and rolls over your derriere – I’m sorry, please try again later. Your immediate diagnosis is SQUAT MORE.
If it stops the barbell completely (for an example of this please ask Sam Horenstein to demo) – You pass with flying colors and are inducted into the official Fanny Hall of Fame. Celebrate accordingly with more squats.
And with that I leave you back in the capable and slightly more appropriate hands of Eric since I will probably be banned from blogging ever again. Farewell, it’s been fun!
And remember: No Glutes, No Glory.
