Your Butt, But Better

Within the buttocks there are three main muscles, ¬†commonly referred to simply as the Glutes ¬†–

  • Gluteus Maximus: The largest and most powerful muscle, which sits uppermost at the rear.
  • Gluteus Medius: An abductor muscle located just above and to the outer side of the Maximus on the side of the buttocks.
  • Gluteus Minimus: Another abductor situated under the upper part of the Maximus, and which works in tandem with the Medius.

The Gluteus Maximus works to extend the leg backwards, while the Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus work together to move the leg away from the body out to the side. When trained well and combined with the right diet, these muscles will look and feel firm, lifting the butt and providing a rounder, perter appearance.

Try the following exercises 2-3 times a week to get the best results and work your way towards a better butt!
