Anatomy in detail.

GLUTEUS MAXIMUS

gluteus maximus muscles highlighted on skeleton. Almost diamond shaped covering the buttocks.  wide and flat.

The largest skeletal muscles of the body, the left and right gluteus maximus muscles form the superficial muscle layer of the buttocks.

The gluteus maximus muscles attach to multiple structures, many more than the current standard description covers.

gluteus maximus attachments in detail. The pelvic bones, ligaments, fascia as listed above. Anatomy merges together, the many forms of connective tissue blending muscle and bone - it's everywhere so don't think of muscles as individual structures, rather contractile fibers within a web of connective tissue, the gluteus maximus being the largest muscles of the body - hands on buttocks feel them tighten.

Attachments:

When the gluteus maximus muscles are engaged (contracting) they exert influence on many structures in the pelvic region, so it is important that they are balanced and working correctly - connecting your Base-Line to legs.

Beneath each gluteus maximus there are many smaller muscles which are prone to stress syndromes when the glutei maximi (plural) are not adequately functioning.

The detailed anatomy of these underlying muscles is unimportant to the healing process, focus on your main muscles of movement working and the rest will sort itself.
