Behind it All – The Glutes

What are ‘the Glutes’?

To me, they are the goddess of all muscles. To you, they may be what you sit on all day. In a mans eyes, they give beautiful, rounded, appealing curves to a woman’s body. For an athlete, it’s what can give them power, and advantage over a competitior. To a fitness model, it’s what gives them a well shaped, and strong behind that helps to create stature and stage presence.

In simplicity, they are the group of muscles in your butt – Aka booty, ass, behind, toosh, posterior, hiney, derriere, and the list goes on. They are 3 of the main muscles that contribute to movement, function, and stability in the lower body; the Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius, and Gluteus Minimus. They should ideally operate efficiently in most lower body movements such as squats, deadlifts, and lunges.
