Everyone's backside could use a boost. Think of your glutes as your tires. They need to stay inflated to keep you moving through life, not just the summer swimsuit season. A strong set of glutes - we have three gluteal muscles on each side of our body - keeps the upper body stable and helps relieve tension from the back and even the shoulders. Strong glutes also help stabilize the hips and connect and engage the lower body for a strong gait.
Here are 5 Pilates exercises to shape up those glutes, and build a backside that supports you:
