Basic Muscles Explanation
The gluteus maximus, commonly known as glutes, is the muscle on which we sit, the most powerful one involved in the beginning phase of the hip elevation movement or the spine elevation. Without a doubt, the erector spinalis participates in the total extension of the hip and spine. The erector spinalis is formed by a group of large muscles located alongside the spine.
Muscles & Joint Actions
The extension movement of the hip makes the trunk, pelvis and superior part of the body elevate and align while hips go forward to reach an erect position. The major glute and the spinalis erector make these movements happen.
Spine extensions are important in powerlifting and weightlifting. The bodybuilders use it to develope the lower back. The spine extension is crucial in jumping and racing. This action is used specifically in sports that require jumping up, like high jumps, basketball and volleyball.
