The sun is heating up, and there's no better way to squeeze into those summer shorts than to squeeze those cheeks in a butt-building sesh.

The glutes are a crucial component in running, jumping, throwing, swinging, striking and twisting. They also stabilize the hips for anterior and posterior pelvic tilting, absorb impact of hip movement and stabilize the spine (among other big time roles). So, the stronger your booty, the better you move. Ready to get your glutes in gear? This 30-minute workout from trainer, Greatist contributor, and all-around glute expert Kellie Davis can be done anywhere, any time!
