We see a lot of threads asking for bench form critiques on this forum. I feel like most of these threads are made because people don’t know how to critique their own form. They just don’t know what to look for. I’m hoping to narrow that gap with this thread. I’m not going to touch on everything,...

Glute exercises that don't work the hamstrings?

I though the hamstrings were like a bicep and just flex the leg. But now I see their upper end connects to the pelvic bone, so they power the leg backwards during walking. Isn't that what the glutes do? I'm not seeing the difference between the to and how to isolate the glutes.
