Abstract

Gluteal muscles have a unique composition of fast- and slow-twitch fibers that may require specific training. The purpose of this study was to determine correlations between measures of gluteal strength, power, and endurance in healthy adults. Moderate correlations existed between gluteal strength and endurance (r=0.454-0.466), as well as gluteal strength and vertical jump height (r=0.477-0.558). Low correlations were found between vertical jump height and endurance (r=0.278). These results suggest gluteal endurance training in addition to power and strength training may provide a more comprehensive training strategy than any one type of training alone to maximize gluteal muscle function.
