Post Most effective glute exercise? (From your experience)

Other than the traditional squats which I persoally do not believe helped me in the slightest. Well, it helped my hams, not glutes. I'd say for me it has to be the hip thrusts. Anyone? Thank you

The cardio before or after weights debate

Unhappy Has anyone's shoulder slipped while doing presses?

While pressing heavy dumbbells yesterday, my should slipped slightly. It did not dislocate, however its really sore, has limited mobility and now I am down and out. Has anyone ever experienced this and if so do you know how long this takes to heal and become stable again? Thanks!
