Lets talk Glutes; Booty Muscles! The gluteus muscles (Gluteus maximus, Gluteus medius, Gluteus minimus, Tensor Fasciae Latae) are the largest muscles in the human body. These muscles are also extremely powerful because they are responsible for helping hold your body upright while standing or moving. These wonderful muscles are used for walking, going up stairs, squatting down to pick something up (bending at your back can injure your spine, so SQUAT when you want to reach the floor), and a whole lot more.
The next few exercises are ways you can strengthen your glutes and the muscles around them (booty, thighs, back) using little to no equipment.
