The butt test is a simple method for measuring the size of the Gluteus Maximus muscles on an individual. In layman’s terms, its measures how big your butt is. First, have your test subject lie on the ground, face down, preferably with their hands above their head. Load a barbell with either iron 45’s, or standard size bumper plates. If the barbell rolls over their glutes without touching, that athlete is in serious trouble and needs MOAR SQUATZ immediately. If the barbell touches the glutes, that athlete will earn an acceptable score (could still use some more squats though). If the athletes glutes completely stop the barbell from rolling forward, that athlete has earned a gold star and should probably celebrate by doing some squats.
I was inspired to conduct this test after hearing about it from another gym and asked some of my athletes to perform the test. After all, if you want to represent Lift Big Eat Big, you better have a backside worth dropping a jaw over.
Streaky, along with some of her fellow athletes from Cast Iron Crossfit sent in some photos and video of themselves performing the test, with results that even Sir Mix-A-Lot would approve of:
The gluteal muscles are considered to be some of the strongest in the whole body, and they are what give humans their unique bipedal advantages. They are also the best looking muscle group on the body. That is why I want all readers of Lift Big Eat Big to test themselves with the Lift Big Eat Big Butt Test and photograph/videotape their results.
The most impressive male and female results will win a t-shirt of their choosing. You all have 5 days to finish The Butt Test and either email me your results or upload them to the Facebook page. Get to it!
