The glutes are the biggest muscle group we have. With their size and prime real estate on the body, they play the most important role in explosive movement, lateral quickness, change of direction, and plyometric strength.
Even overhead athletes like pitchers, quarterbacks, and tennis players rely on their glutes to generate the majority of their power while throwing or serving. Golfers and boxers need their glutes to maximize force generation with a right hook or long opening drive. Every athlete needs strong glutes!
