Growing your glutes has become a popular thing especially amongst women.
Having a rounder and plumper has become a major sex appeal and is seen everywhere in the fitness industry from supplement branding to clothing modeling.
But if we break it down to the actual functionality of your glutes and go past the aesthetics part of it, you’ll see why anyone, even men and not just women should also make sure to work on their glutes.
The first thing is your gluteus maximus, which is the biggest of the three-muscle sin your glutes is also the most powerful muscle and largest. They aid in not only everything from walking to running but allow you to be able to help generate power when jumping or thrusting in any direction.
Having stronger glutes also takes the pressure off your lower back and assists your hamstrings better as well. Depending on if we're born with physical restrictions, how we take care of our health over time, our genetics, life circumstances we get into that can cause injury, our nutrition, can depict what happens to our physical well-being.
And our lower backs tend to be a common injury for most people as they take the brunt of damage over time. Working out in general, but also strengthening your glutes can help support it better.
When I worked in physio, one of the most common issues people had been problematic chronic pain in their lower back. People had injured their lower backs from hard labor jobs or from just sitting at an office desk all day.
Then to top it off, over years they would constantly lift things off the ground the wrong way, most of the time putting pressure on their back. So, strengthening your lower back plus strengthening your glutes can help support and get rid of some of the discomfort in that area.
Strengthening them can make everyday life a lot easier. If you are someone who has low power in your hip area, then strengthening your glutes is a must.
They help with everything from moving laterally to lifting or moving your leg forward and backward and giving as little power to help with walking. Their vital especially for people who are in their later years as they begin and have lost strength.
Everyone and I mean every single person should be exercising with weight to some form or fashion of degree anyways to help strengthen the body and relieve the pain and pressure you just might have to endure the older you get. But working on your glutes can help with this.
So, remember the reason why you should grow your glutes is not just for aesthetic reasons but also to help and enhance your physical capabilities. Train for strength and longevity to help reduce the effects of aging, not just for looks.
