A quick Google search reveals that only two other people in the history of the Internet have uttered the exact phrase “the lats are the glutes of the upper body.”
(To be precise, there were multiple search results, but the others were merely Retweets.)
Despite the fact that this idea is not original, it has yet to be expounded on. I gladly take the bait in my new guest post for Dean Somerset.
♫ I like big lats and I cannot lie. You other sisters can't deny that when a guy walks in with an itty bitty waist and a wide back in your face, you get sprung.♫
