Glutes are muscles responsible for moving the hips and legs. They are primarily responsible for the movement of extension, abduction, and external rotation of the hip.
In addition to this primary function of glutes, they also provide stabilization of the pelvis during single-leg stance.
Glute muscles are large muscles, so it is easy to use them in exercises. You can work your muscles with squats, deadlifts, or any other exercise that targets muscles of the glutes.
