4 exercises to develop your glutes

It’s not just about looking good. Your glutes are there for other reasons. Of course, looking good and having firm and shapely glutes is great and you’ll definitely look great with the right type of jeans. However, glutes are fundamental in movements like jumping and sprinting; also, they play a key role in relieving low-back pain and they are crucial to everyday movements like standing or climbing stairs. That’s why we brought you 4 good exercises for your glutes, courtesy of EVO Norway PT Frida Rommen.
