How to Grow Your Glutes
March 01, 2022
You will come across many glute exercises in different fitness programs. For people who want to have bigger butts, there are many suggestions from the fitness community on how you could do so. It’s not only about the appearance of the glutes; it’s also about the strength and power that you could get in proper glue training. In case you don’t know, the Gluteus Maximus, part of your glutes, is our largest muscle and it helps you go about your daily activities as well as help you in becoming an athlete if that is your goal. These muscles help you do just about anything—walking, sitting, jumping, and running. It is composed of three separate muscles namely the Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius, and Gluteus Minimus. These parts make up the glutes that help you rotate your hip and extend it, make yourself stable, and help you stand upright with good posture and climb stairs. We all have different body types which mean the shape and size of the glutes vary. There are also beauty standards that we adhere to and most people want their glutes to be bigger in size. If this is the case, then there are many exercises that you could do to boost the growth of this muscle. What is the key to glute development? You have to add weights or resistance to the hip extension movements. And because you need a hip extension in many different sports, developing your glutes also serves another function other than aesthetic: superior athletic ability. For example, if your glutes have more power, you will be able to cover more distance in less time when you are sprinting. You are able to extend your hips in each stride and take your next step immediately. Another example from Gym Shark is that during an Olympic game of snatch, you need to execute explosive hip extensions which, of course, require strong glutes. We listed down some basic and advanced glute exercises for you to try at the gym or even at home in your garage.
