It is not just about having a rounder bum but also reaping the benefits, glutes help slow down the flexion of your hips which helps counteract the downward pull of gravity. This helps prevent your lumbar spine from over-rounding forward. Your glutes help to stabilize the pelvis and movement in the hip joint.



Strong glutes help decrease the risk of injury during exercises like dead lifting by taking some of the pressure off your lower back. Protect these muscles by strengthening your glutes through exercises like hip thrusts, single leg dead lifts, and clam shells.
