They all mean the same thing... your gluteus maximus is a major player when it comes to building muscle and losing fat.
Your bum is the largest muscle in your body and so..the more calories it will make your body burn. You cannot shape fat but you can work on building muscle to give you that round booty.
Genetics does play a role in muscle development but remember, super skinny can still have a flabby butt!
Also.. have a strong gluteus can help with hip and back problems. Weak glutes really impact your entire muscular system.
Women tend to be more in tune with the look of their bum.. i guess partly because men are as well :/ . It is a very sexy part of a womens body and for better or worse , it will be pinched, slapped, and stared at for eternity. Men, on the other hand tend to workout the things they see in the mirror..namely chest and biceps....
