These 4 glute exercises strengthen the glutes and prevent lower back pain and hamstring pulls. Strong glutes also help stabilize knees. Start with a single set of 15 of each. Build up to 3-4 sets of 15 on each side (if applicable) and do them daily until you build up to all 4 sets, then do them a few times a week to maintain. Your “better butt” will be doing its job in hip extension, which protects the lower back. Muscles of the glutes include the maximus, medius, and minimus.
Are you tired of settling for weight gain and fatigue just because you’re approaching or have already passed age 50? You can still get in the best shape of your life, no matter your age!
