Glut Training Exercises

Great exercises to strengthen and develop the gluteal muscles.

What are gluteals?

Buttocks are not just for sitting on! Without attention these muscles quickly waste away leaving flat, droopy butts.  Allow me to introduce you to:

  • Gluteus Maximus
  • Gluteus Medius, and
  • Gluteus Minimus

Why do we need them?

Not only is this not aesthetically pleasing but the gluteals are a powerful hip extensor and weakness results in significant power output decreases.  Without good gluteal muscles to perform the hip extension needed in getting up from a chair, climbing stairs, walking, running, and cycling, other muscles are forced to compensate particularly the muscle of the lower back and hamstrings leading to injury and muscle pain.
