Basic Muscles Explanation
The main muscles that are involved in the backward leg kick are the hip joint extensors. These are the gluteus maximus, (with the help of the middle and minor that hide behind the major). The gluteus maximus is a big and meaty muscle located in the back part of the pelvis.
Muscles & Joint Actions
When we take flexed or extended leg backwards in a kicking motion we are involving the gluteus maximus muscle and also involving the middle and the minor. In the last stage of this movement, holding the position for a second will contract the fibres of the glutes increasing the strenght and developement of the glutes.
Leg back kicks are practiced by athletes to tone glutes and give them a rounded shape. This exercise is important in all sports that require jumping or running. The role of this exercise is to increase hip flexibility, which is specially important in racing, where the forward foot pushes back to increase strength and thrusts the body forward.
