For most fitness enthusiasts, the primary focus is to target the core, arms and legs. Glutes are always a secondary choice. That’s mostly because they are not completely aware of the function of this important group of muscles.
Our gluteus, which comprises gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus, is the largest and the strongest muscle group in the body. It works together with the hamstring to extend, rotate and abduct the hip. These two muscles play a significant role in stabilising the pelvis while walking, running and climbing. In simple words, strengthening the glutes prevents the risk of injuries while performing the day-to-day task. Deadlifts and Hip thrust are the two powerful butt exercises performed with the help of a barbell that you can include in your routine when trying to target the glutes.
