In nearly every case it is the gluteas muscles that are affected worst. How common is it to see people that have large untoned buttocks that do not match the shape of the rest of the body.

While obviously this problem should be addressed at the cause which is covered in other exercises, a good stretch will certainly ease further side effects.
