Working out your glutes doesn’t just get you a higher, tighter-looking tush. It can also work wonders for your body. This muscle group (one of the largest) acts as the middleman between your spine, back, and upper and lower body. Keeping those rear muscles in top form will help you stand up straighter, feel better, and perform like a rock star when you’re doing outdoor activities like running or hiking. 

This ultimate outdoor butt workout works as a standalone workout or incorporated into a walk, run, or hike. Either way you do it, warm up with a brisk walk before you get going. Aim to complete a total of three to five circuits of all six exercises.
