31 Days to a Better Butt – Day 1 – Glute Sets

31 Days to a Better Butt | Day 1

Butt Fact: The butt is shaped by the 3 gluteal muscles, the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus. Together, they are known as the glutes.

Glute Sets

Donโ€™t be fooled by the simplicity of this exercise. Itโ€™s a great way to warm up the glutes in the morning before you even get out of bed. Most people in our society sit far too much. This means that the glutes don’t fire often and become weak, and the opposing muscle group, the psoas or hip flexors, shorten and become tight. Consider glute sets to be an alarm clock to wake upย your butt.

  1. You can do glute sets anywhere, standing, sitting, or lying down.
  2. Simply squeeze your butt cheeks together and hold.
  3. Do a set of 20 reps for 5 seconds each.

Yes, I know I look like a corpse. But I promise, I’m squeezing my glutes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I pulled my hamstring several years ago. Glute sets were the first exercise I did when I started rehab. Weak glutes likely contributed to my injury in the first place and strengthening them was key to recovery. As a side note, this is great for getting ready for professional twerking. ๐Ÿ™‚
