There are thousands of exercises, and you've only got one body, but that doesn't mean you can't try them all. Having strong gluteus or buttocks muscles can help prevent lower back pain, weak core muscles and hip pain. Stand in front of a countertop, holding onto it for balance.

Make sure to keep both hips squared to the countertop.
