Many people focus on building a better-looking backside, but the benefits of strong glutes go far beyond looking good in a bathing suit.
Composed of three muscles – the gluteus minimus, gluteus medius, and gluteus maximus – the glutes support lower body movement and provide a stable base for your entire body.
Weak glutes can cause a myriad of problems, from back aches to knee pain and poor posture.
Make all those aches and pains disappear by putting the lift back in your booty!
Keep reading to learn how strengthening your glutes can go beyond aesthetics and enhance your body’s everyday functionality for an enhanced quality of life.
The Benefits Of Stronger Glutes
Fewer Back Aches
When your glutes are weak, it’s more than aesthetics that suffer. Without proper muscular assistance, your lower back has to work harder to stabilize the rest of your body and perform everyday activities from climbing stairs to simply walking. This can lead to chronic aches and pains as well as possible permanent damage. By strengthening your glutes, not only do you gain a lifted toosh, but you can relieve stress on your lower back and make daily functions, such as bending down or squatting, easier than ever!
Reduced Knee Pain
Weakness in your outer glutes or hip area can also lead to excessive force on the knee and ankle. This can result in pain or extreme discomfort, even when sitting or performing simple tasks. However, adding definition and strength to your glutes can prevent these symptoms of instability in your outer glute or hip area.
Glutes aren’t just soft pillows for your body to sit on, they provide a stable base from which your limbs essentially move while distributing weight throughout your lower extremities. If that foundation or base is weakened and unstable, your legs (and arms) become weak and unstable as well. This is why having strong glutes is the key ingredient to a strong base, allowing every movement you do to come easier.
Strong glutes are essential to lower back health since they assist with pelvic, hip, and trunk motions, but they also assist in good posture. As mentioned, when it comes to balance, strong glutes provide a foundation and a proper distribution of load. In other words, when your glute muscles are weak, your spine isn’t provided the support it needs, nor is the pelvis supported with the stabilization required for having a healthy posture.
