Build Beautiful Glutes

Posted in: Workout Guide  on Friday, May 4, 2018

Glutes, they’re one of the largest muscle groups in our body. It takes the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus to help with the function of everyday movement. While the cosmetics of the glutes are extremely popular among women right now, it’s also important to remember that a strong pair of glutes is vital to a healthy active lifestyle.

Incorporating this workout into your routine will definitely yield growth, but strength as well. I’ve included beginner, intermediate, and advanced exercises so start where you feel comfortable. If you don’t know how to do a particular exercise, you can easily look it up through a search engine.

This is a great workout that targets all three glute muscles, and uses a variety of techniques. Generally women looking for glute growth should be training them between 3-4 times per week, while men looking to strengthen can train them anywhere from 1-2 times a week.
