Glute muscles, especially the gluteal muscle, are the largest muscle group in the body.
They’re the most important in terms of weightlifting performance and, most importantly, in terms for hip flexion and hip extension.
They’ve been the focus of a lot of research into the muscles’ function and how they can be trained for various tasks, such as for a variety of sports, from weightlifting to strength and conditioning.
One area that has gotten a lot more attention is glute muscle training.
Researchers have looked at exercises for glute strength, hip extension, hip abduction, and hip flexor strength, and they’ve found that glute exercises like glute bridges, glute bridge lunges, and glute activation are effective in these different types of activities.
But what about glutes that are weaker than the others?
And what are the benefits of training them for these tasks?
Here are some of the best glute exercise recommendations for both strength and mobility, according to researchers:
