Best gluteal exercises

How are you doing with your weight training program? Research tells us that weight training is good for the muscles, including your heart muscle.

The American Council on Exercise (ACE) recently announced research that determines the most effective gluteal exercises. “The results of this research showed that several of the exercises were as effective as the traditional squat at targeting the gluteal muscles. This study confirmed the relative value of alternative exercises such as lunges, step-ups, quadruped hip extensions, and four-way hip extensions, providing viable options for individuals who may have difficulty properly performing traditional squats.”

Some of these exercises can be safer, yet effective, for those with joint problems.

Here is a detailed look at the exercises.
