Your Maximus: Is the biggest of the bunch, the maximus muscle gives our butts their shape. It works to rotate and extend the hip and helps your quadriceps when you decelerate. This one of the main muscles used in powerful and explosive movements!
Medius: This is the primary stabilizer of the hip joint. Any time we have only one foot on the ground during standing, walking, running, or jumping, the gluteus medius ensures that the knee and pelvic alignments are preserved. If that alignment is off, you can’t move efficiently & will cause injuries because of muscle imbalance.
Minimus: This deep muscle assists surrounding muscles with hip rotation.

Focus more on the form than on the weight for this one.
Muscle and mind connection is always the key when working the glutes.
4 sets of 15 reps will get the job done! #bootybuilding #MsBikiniOlympia #Olympiaprep @mrolympiallc

Target the part of the booty that makes it look lifted and perky!
_
👀 This area of the booty is the Gluteus Minimus (1 of 3 major butt muscles). Developing this area of your derriere will help the booty appear lifted and rounder.
_
🏋🏼‍♀️ The best way to grow these muscles is to isolate them (meaning working that muscle with little help from other muscle groups).
_
💥 Growing the Glute muscles is important for eliminating lower back pain, improving posture, strengthening your core, and preventing knee injury💥
_
🎥 This video shows a few ideas on how to isolate that particular muscle group. Add weights as you get the form down, and then go heavier as those weights or resistance bands as it become less challenging. Keep these high rep (15-25 each for 3-4 Rounds)
_
Happy Peach Building! 🤙🍑

If you don't know what hip dips are, they are the inward curves just below your hip bones on each side of your body. So the aim with this video is to show you how you can minimize hip dips and get fuller hips. ⚠️ To notice, your progress has a lot to do with your muscle built, body type and fat distribution.
⚠️ Even though you cannot completely get rid of hip dips you can do exercises that will make them less noticeable!
.
1️⃣ Landmine Squats with press outs 4 x 12.
2️⃣ Curtsy lunges 4 x 12 each side.
3️⃣ Cable side lifts 4 x 12 each side.
4️⃣ Glute bridges with step outs 4 x 10 each side.
.
If you want more exercises for hip dips, you should always have 2 muscles in mind to activate - gluteus medius and gluteus minimus.

Remember, hip dips It's a part of your overall beauty darl! 🖤

This type of exercise is for strengthening mostly, but will tone ! If you want to bulk of course add weight. I incorporate the squat just to get a compound movement in there ! (Squats should be low !!! Ass to the grass) Doing muscle isolation exercises will allow you to develop a mind to muscle connection which is need for muscle growth ! Your mind is a key ingredient in growing your muscles ! Your mind moves the muscle, not the weight ! #hypertrophygoals #resistancebandshawty

Farmer’s Walks are a staple in my DIESEL Men’s Program, as well as our Athlete Performance programs. This simple yet challenging exercise engages all the muscle groups in one movement. It's an exercise in pure strength. Here's the breakdown:

Arms
Your arms will scream as the weight relentlessly tries to separate your shoulders and elbows from their sockets. The forearms get an intense workout, which helps improve grip strength, while the biceps and triceps must work to stabilize the elbow and shoulder joints.

Back and Shoulders
The muscles in the back and shoulders are heavily targeted, particularly the traps. These muscles must work together in a continuous contraction to keep your shoulder blades together and down, and to keep your shoulder joints stable.

Core
Here's a way to get tighter, stronger abs without doing an ab-specific exercise. The core muscles are hit hard during a heavy farmer's walk, and the back and abdomen must work in sync to support your torso and the additional weight. Keeping your abs tight during the exercise is necessary to protect the lower back and prevent any shear stress or vertebral buckling.

Legs
Because the farmer's walk requires you to walk, the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, and calf muscles are used extensively.

Usefulness
The farmer's walk trains your body in a way that's useful even beyond the gym. You can't underestimate the importance of grip strength and the ability to lift and carry heavy objects for health or in everyday life. The farmer's walk might be the most "functional" exercise in existence.

External/internal rotation (ER/IR) are just a few functions that can be performed when acted upon by certain muscle or muscle groups.

The muscles mostly responsible for this action to occur are your gluteus medius and minimus. The origins and insertions (attachment points) of these muscles is the ilium (lateral sides of the pelvis) and femur. These muscles can often be inactive/weak due to various reasons. A common reason could be bc of overactive/tight adductors (inner leg muscles). A lack in activation, mobility, and strength in ER/IR (emphasize ER) of these muscles can negatively impact squat patterning, squat depth, and strength gains in the squat.

The various exercises demonstrated I use to alter the fascia or tissue around the hips, increase mobility of the hips in ER and IR (again emphasizing ER), and activation while increasing strength in my glute medius and minimus.
You'll notice both hips lack some serious mobility and have a difficult time starting and maintaining that 90/90 position especially on my right side. Definitely have my work cut out for me. Excited to see the progress.
Give it a try and let me know what you discover.

(And push like if you like these swipies! 💕 This is one way to find out, and 4 ways to get them stronger! Especially the gluteus medius which is almost fully covered behind gluteus maximus. Stand on one leg, use your opposite hand to hold on to something for balance. If you’re able to keep your leg straight and don’t ”drop” the hip to the side like I show in the video, you’re fine! If you drop your hip, you may have weak abductors. This can be one reason among others but it’s the most common reason.
▪️Gluteus medius is not the prior muscle to work on if you just want volume to your butt, it’s maximus. Why? beacuse medius is to the bigger part located under your gluteus maximus and it’s also much smaller compared to maximus. Medius will not “push out from underneath” your maximus to make your butt lock bigger.
▪️Despite that, you should NOT neglect this muscle. 
Training your abductors can help you to:
🔸improve your posture
🔸stabilizing your hip
🔸 one key to have a functional hip
🔸improving your squats by stabilizing your hip
🔸 prevent injuries
🔸 Help during all one leg exercises i.e better workouts - more gains!
▪️Gluteus minimus is aslo a muscle you read a lot about, but as the name tells you, it’s a very small muscle (compared to the other two).
This muscle are doing the rotational movement in your hip but is also involved in abduction and by that, it also
help you stabilize your hip joint.
🔹 1. Laying hip abductions
🔹2. Standing hip abductions
🔹3. Monster walks
🔹4. Use mini bands during your leg workouts to help push knees out. Ex. during squats and hip thrusts. 🍑🍑🍑🤗 #GluteusMedius #Hips #Boooooty

Here’s WHY you should be adding these 6 exercises to your next lower body workout:


1.)Band kickback :targets the glutes and helps improve muscle strength and tone. This exercise also boosts core stability and balance and helps sculpt the hips, legs, and thighs.
💥
2.)Resisted Lateral Squat:
🔻Creates balanced hip strength—critical for athletes who are constantly changing directions.
🔻Increases abductor [outer hip] strength, which prevents the knees from collapsing inward when squatting or landing from a jump.
💥
It’s not a booty day with out pairing the following two exercises:
3.)Fire hydrant:
This exercise targets the outer glutes, core and hips. This is a great exercise to tone and firm your butt and thighs, strengthen the hips and also to tighten your core.
💥
4.)Donkey Kicks:
Helps stabilise and strengthens your core, lower back, legs and butt. Each leg lift tones all three butt muscles -- gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus -- in both the leg being lifted and the leg used for support.
💥
Try it on a Single leg and pair the two exercises for a real WIN!
💥
5.)Bulgarian split squat :
While other kinds of squats cause you to compress your spine during the movement, the Bulgarian split squat is an exception to the rule. This is one of the benefits of the Bulgarian split squat that is recognized by people with sore backs.
💥
6.)Single-leg squat: Promotes hip stability and strength.
💥
7.) Pull Through:
The pull-through is fantastic for building posterior chain strength and directly carries over to the field of play by teaching you how to use your glutes and hamstrings to produce hip extension for running and jumping. Specifically, it teaches you to separate your low back from your hips during the hip hinge pattern. Many people use their low back to produce movement which sets them up for injury! The pull-through also provides full-range loading with no dead spots in the movement which teaches you to maintain full-body tension throughout the entire range of motion for hip extension and flexion.


Hope these are helpful tips for you guys!
Save and give them a GO ✅

Here is a great solution for you Girls.... stay away from ✖pills and ✖surgeries. #benaturallyyou

Learn how to workout those glutes, and be patient you will get positive result at the end.
.
.
💥
.

Your glute muscles work as a team. The gluteus Maximus is kinda like the team captain. They offer stability to your hip when you walk, run and stand and move your hip back, side to side and in and out. They should be the strongest team of muscles in your body
.
The Maximus is the one that everyone wants to develop. That can be done primarily through hip extension (hip thrusts, deadlifts etc)
.
Your Medius and Minimus are also important in overall glute and hip health. They can both be worked with various abduction/ external/ internal rotation movements (note: the movements below each muscle will work both the medius, minimus and even maximus.)
.
So if you really want to get those solid glutes, focus on the big extension movments to start and add on the supplemental ones to finish off 😊
.
Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any questions 🤔

One of the most desired areas for growth on a girl is the glutes.

First and foremost you should always consider the training frequency of the targeted muscle group. For maximal growth there must be enough time spent developing the muscle as well as enough time resting the muscle, this will allow development and aid recovery from intense sessions.

Developing lagging body parts can be done by targeting the area 2-3 times per week. Use different angles, the number of repetitions and sets as well as shortened and lengthened time under tension, this will really benefit those stubborn areas.

Glutes can be worked by compound movements such as the squat or deadlift as well as isolation movements such as rope pull throughs and reverse hyperextensions.

The gluteus muscles are made up of the gluteus medius and minimus which lie beneath the gluteus maximus. The Glut.Max moves in a different way to the other 2 part of the muscle as it is moved by hip extension whereas the Glut.Med and Glut.Min is moved by leg abduction.
Therefore to ensure all of the muscles above are worked efficiently it is vital to make sure your programme includes all of the different movement patterns to avoid over domination in certain parts of the glute.

Exercises that are great for the gluteus maximus are Deadlifts, Romanian Deadlifts, Hip Bridges, Rope Pull Throughs and Good Mornings. However, for the gluteus medius and minimus, exercises such as Walking Lunges, High Step Ups and Cable Kick Backs. These movements are much more isolated and have less impact on the joints around the gluteus muscles such as the lower back, therefore prioritising movements such as deadlifts at the start of the workout is the best way in which to go about programming for glute development.

From a little flat pancake booty to a pretty round peach 🍳🔜🔜🍑!!! I don’t have the biggest bum in the world, but I’ve managed to add around 7/8 inches to it over the course of a few years! Some girls are genetically blessed with an ass - I would kill to be Latino! But unfortunately I can’t change my genetics 😂🙈! I’ll always have a tall athletic build -but I have managed to give myself some curves! Genetically I’m quad dominant too! Squats etc - my quads will take over!
Tips I find helpful when building the ass;
1. Mind/muscle connection. The glutes aren’t like the biceps or quads, in the sense of it taking absolutely no effort or mindfulness to hit them hard with an exercise. In truth, your glutes will hardly activate unless you make a concerted effort to engage them during the lift in question. With this in mind, it wouldn’t be a smart move to start off by trying to crack out reps with heavy weight, regardless of the exercise you choose to hit them. There’s a high chance that your body will simply rely on what’s already strong to perform the lift instead. Get your technique right before you start piling the weight on.
2. HIP THRUST!!!!!!! Seriously! The single best exercise for glute development! Barbell, body weight, one legged, TUT, glute bridges, resistance bands - any of them! Just do them!
3. Go wide and high!! Yes I do normal squats but if I’m doing a glute focused session and not legs, I’ll move my feet wide and high. Taking your feet high will move the focus to the tush and not the legs
4. Train them frequently! Your glutes aren’t growing if you’re just training them once a week. I do 3 glute focused sessions a week with a mix of exercise variations, weight and rep schemes.
5. Ignore people that say just squat and deads! The glutes are actually made up of a group of 3 muscles on each limb. The gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus. Truthfully, movements like squats, deadlifts, hip thrusts, good mornings and the like all train one capacity - hip extension. This neglects the glutes other function (cont in comments....)...
