3 Main Muscles in the Butt

Glute Kick Backs are a great exercise to focus in on the glutes.


There are three main muscles that comprise your butt:

  • gluteus maximus
  • gluteus medius
  • gluteus minimus

Glute Kick Backs are a great exercise to focus in on the glutes.  This can be done on a mat or with a cable machine to add some additional resistance. While on the floor on all fours, extend one leg and with the foot cocked to a point that places it in line with the head. Then raise it to a 45-degree angle with the foot elevated above the head. The key to maximum results is to concentrate on contracting the glutes throughout the full range of motion.
