What Are Butt Muscles?

The gluteal muscles (glutes), also called butt muscles, are a group of three muscles - gluteus maximus (large muscle) gluteus medius (medium size) and gluteus minimus (small). The gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in this area. It is also the muscle we use most in our normal daily activity. We use the gluteus maximus when we stand up from a sitting position and when we walk.

What Sort of Butt Exercise Should I Do?

Regular daily activity like brisk walking, walking uphill, helps to shape and tone the butt, even without doing specific butt exercises. Climbing stairs, jumping rope (skipping) and step aerobics are all excellent butt exercises. An exercise workout might include Lifts, Raises and Stretches as well as a range of quadriceps exercises to shape the butt. Ideally, these exercises should be done 2-3 times a week as part of an overall exercise program.

What Goes Wrong With Butt Muscles?

The gluteus maximus is one of the biggest gluteal muscles in the body and it needs to be worked to keep it firm and toned. Sitting for long period should be avoided. If your job is sedentary and you have to sit for long periods, exercise your butt muscles regularly during the day by walking around for a few minutes every hour. Take the stairs instead of the lift and move around on your seat as much as possible. Butt exercises are important for women as they accumulate fat on the butt and thigh area while men accumulate more fat in the abdominal area.

Exercise Equipment to Strengthen Butt

Gym machines that exercise the lower body include: stepper, treadmill, elliptical trainer or recumbent bike. This fitness equipment exercises and tones the butt, hips, quads, hamstring and calves. It is best to vary the resistance during your workout to give your muscles the most benefit. Working a combination of muscles (including the gluteal muscles) is better than exercising single muscles.
