Glute sets strengthen the buttock muscles. The buttock muscles are important in rotating and extending your legs. Do 8 to 12 repetitions several times during the day.

  1. Lie on your back and prop yourself up on your elbows.
  2. Squeeze your buttocks together as tightly as possible and hold for about 6 seconds.
