Killer Glutes Workout
Bridges (butt lift)
One of the most common glutes workout/exercise and a great way to isolate the glutes, bridges can be done anywhere! In the crunch position, lift your torso up by squeezing together your glutes. Pause at the top for the most effective contraction and settle back down in the resting position. For an added challenge you can perform “One-Legged Bridges” with one leg elevated.
Stability Ball Bridge
Another way to increase the difficulty of the bridge is to employ your stability ball! Like a normal bridge, this works your glutes but because you are using a stability ball it also will help tighten up the core and the smaller muscles! Once again lift your torso to where your body is “flat” by contracting your glutes.
Kickbacks are a great way to isolate the glutes! Begin on all fours and bring one leg up at a time by squeezing and contracting the glutes. Keep the working leg at a 90-degree angle. At the maximum contraction, your calve should be perpendicular to the ground and your thigh should be parallel to the ground!
All squats are great but these really help isolate the glutes. Begin by kneeling on the ground with your feet underneath you (your glutes basically touching your feet). In a smooth controlled motion raise up to where you are directly above your kneecaps achieving this by squeezing the glutes! This can be done while holding dumbbells to increase the difficulty!
Leg Lift (hip extension) with band
You may have to wrap the band around itself to make it shorter. Stand straight up, looking forward with the band around your ankle. Move the leg back as far as possible while keeping the leg straight by contracting your glute. Perform the exercise on each leg!
Along with squats and deadlifts, these are some of the better ways to isolate your glutes! Perform each exercise for 12-15 repetitions for 3 sets or you can perform them in combination with a number of other bodyweight exercises!
Now that you have an at-home glutes workout, you can start combining upper and lower body exercises to get a full-body workout!
