The gluteus maximus is the largest muscle of the gluteal group (glute min, glute med, and glute max) 🍑
The muscles most powerful action is hip extension 🔋
👨🏻🏫Extension: refers to a movement that increases the angle between two joints.
🗣"But what is hip extension?"🗣 Bringing your hips forward or “opening” your hips along with the backward movement of your thigh. Running, jumping, kettlebell swings, standing up from a squat, at the top of a deadlift, lunging, and things alike. You are extending the hips.
Check out the two pics on the side, what's the difference?

Like I mentioned before, the glute max is a powerful hip extensor. Make yourself aware! Think of this at the top of a deadlift or squat. Squeeze your butt, glutes, buns, peach, booty or whatever you call it 🍑
