5 moves to round, tone, and lift your butt if you’re 40

According to physical trainers, the gluteal muscles can even grow faster than other muscles, if they are exercised properly. That is why they are so specific and must be followed to the letter.

According to a study published by the United States National Institute of Health, the gluteus muscles are divided into: gluteus maximus (upper), gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus (where the curvature of the gluteus ends).

Some exercises work all the muscles, but others are very specific for each need. That is why it is very important to do a complete training, because otherwise you will not see the results you expect.
