Sir Mix A lot said it best, “silicone parts are made for toys”. In the age of big ole butts, “Kim K”esque body ideals and an abundance of IG model booty posts we want to bring the real deal your way. Lets talk all things Glutes with Jfitt!
Let’s be honest a nice butt will get heads turning. Yes, guys and girls, the gluteal muscles apart from attractive play a huge role in your overall health. This muscle group is broken down into 3 muscles, the minimus, medius and maximus. These muscles are the largest and strongest muscles in your body. The three muscles work together to abduct, rotate and extend the hip.
Having strong gluteal muscles helps prevent injury in the knees, lower back, hamstrings and groin. Strong glutes can enhance your performance in everything from weightlifting to running. The opposite of this, weak glute muscles, can have effects like lower back pain, knee pain & even chronic ankle sprains.

The thing about growing and strengthening your glutes is that the process cannot be accomplished by “squat challenges” or “growth creams”. The recent boom in Brazilian Butt Augmentation, which creates volume through fat transfer averages $8,000-$10,000 in cost. Besides the cost, the procedure is a fat transfer which provides volume but no real growth/strengthening in the muscles. This muscle group, as mentioned is huge and is in direct correlation to your legs, specifically your hamstrings. This direct connection makes a “fake” butt pretty obvious as the fat is set on the booty and the legs… well she said it, they don’t match!
“The gluteus maximus and hamstring muscles are synergists for hip extension. Hamstring tightness in individuals with low back pain could be a compensatory mechanism for weak gluteal muscles.”
