Your glutes — the minimus, medius and maximus — are the largest and strongest muscles in your body. The three muscles work together to abduct, rotate and extend the hip. Strengthening your glutes can help improve posture, as well as make sitting down, standing, picking up heavy objects and climbing stairs easier. Developing strong glutes can also improve athletic performance and decrease your risk for injuries.
Weak glutes can cause an imbalance in the hip, which may lead to excessive medial rotation of the femur and lateral tracking of the patella, potentially causing knee challenges. Strengthening your glutes decreases your risk for back injuries and takes some of the pressure off your lower back.

If the line between your pelvis and hips angles inward, your butt takes on a "V" shape from behind, according to local Coach Damian Huffman CPT his IG-(@d_huffpt) , who says this butt shape is common among women and men with broad shoulders and very narrow hips.
"A-Shaped" women tend to have pear shaped butts that widen below the hip bones and tend to stem from fuller thighs, according to Celebrity Personal Trainer Fhanta Williams her IG (@plant.fit) VP of the Jacksonville Association of Exercise and Nutrition Professionals. JAENP.ORG
The Round Booty is pretty much self-explanatory, but mostly because you've seen this shape on Kim Kardashian, Queen Bey, and J Lo. If you want a rounder butt — which tends to be a popular sentiment among my Dr. Fitness IG: @iamdrfitness Clients — strategically strengthening the butt muscles can give your backside "more projection" without surgical intervention.
