Butt, backside, buns, bum, booty—whatever you call it—you probably want a better one. Everybody does! Firm, round, and lifted are highly desired derriere traits. But let’s put how to look perkier in jeans out of our heads for a second and talk a little science. The suspense!
Did you know your butt is home to the biggest muscle in your entire body? The gluteus maximus, and it’s a glorious thing! This muscle is involved in everything from cycling to walking to climbing stairs to standing! If your glutes aren’t strong, our entire lower body alignment can get out of whack and cause shin splints, runner’s knee, and Achilles tendinitis. And when the gluteus maximus is too weak to do it’s job, other less capable muscles like the hamstrings, low back, quads, and calves have to do extra work which can increase the risk of injury. A strong gluteus maximus means a stronger and more active you!
So are you ready to build a better butt? These are three of my go-to moves to gain strength and score a gorgeous pair of glutes. Add these exercises into your workout twice a week. Your jeans AND your gluteus maximus will thank you! via
