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.
