These gluteus strengthening exercises are great for the gluteus muscles which are very important muscles in our bodies. The gluteus maximus and gluteus medius help us walk and keep our pelvis in alignment.
These gluteus strengthening exercises (or butt strengthening exercises) will help for both the gluteus maximus and the gluteus medius.
Bridges are great for our whole body. They work the hips, knees, back, and much more. You can do bridges by themselves to activate the glut max or add a band to also activate the glut med.
Step downs and side squats with a band are more difficult, but do a great job of working both the gluteus max and med.
Finally, a sumo squat works them slightly differently, and is also a great strengthening exercise for both.
