The activity of the gluteus maximus is said to change with exercise, the hip joint position, and muscle fiber. Therefore, it is important for physical therapy to deepen the understanding of the muscle activities of the upper and lower gluteus maximus in basic movements. In this paper, we examined the muscle activity patterns of the upper and lower gluteus maximus in basic movements using electromyography. The activities of the upper and lower gluteus maximus were different in timing and size of muscle activity in each basic movement, and we describe them using electromyograms.
