When you’re ready to take this low back gluteal muscle to the next level, it really centers around just moving your legs. 

And you can start by going up and down slowly, up with the other, down with the other one, and you can start go get a small motion going within the gluteal muscles of the bum and the low back. 

The thing you really want to be focusing on is not getting into a swinging, kicking motion. What really happens when you do that is it takes the focus off of your lower stomach being able to contract in a nice form, and being able to keep a nice consistent technique around the gluteal and the bum muscles.  

What I really want to focus on in the beginning, whenever I start any new exercise is I want to be able to stay in my muscle, meaning that my brain can actually keep contact with the muscle when I start to move. 

So the key to any kind of pattern when you start a new exercise that involves movement, is that you’re able to stay centered around the muscles that matter, meaning these muscles in here, squeezing the gluteal muscle, keeping in contact with your stomach. 

That’s the real key whenever you start any new motion that involves motion, is that you’re able to stay in tuned with the muscle in your mind. That will allow you to really build muscle a lot quicker.
