The hip joints are crucial in enabling you to walk, bend, climb, sit and stand with ease. They require strong surrounding muscles to give them the stability and support they need. The trio of Glutes, gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus, perform that job for you. The glutes are a large set of muscles that together connect your trunk to your legs. They support the hip joint enabling you to move with strength and control. Whether you are a competitive athlete or a frisky senior citizen, it’s important to include glute work in your daily exercise regime.
