  • Some lateral (side to side) movements

This will ensure that you hit all of those glute muscles.

Exercise 3 - Squats

These squats are simple, but so effective. The deeper you go into the squat the more effective they are.

You can either use a medicine ball or a single dumbbell as a weight.

  1. Stand up with your knees slightly bent.
  2. Hold a medicine ball out in front of you.
  3. Bend your knees and lower yourself deeply into the squat position.
  4. Hold for 1/2 a second.
  5. Squeeze your glutes as you stand up.
  6. Repeat.

Do 10-15 repetitions of the sequence in each set.

Exercise 5 - Donkey Kicks

This exercise also requires going the extra distance. Once you think you've got your leg as high as you can, go a little bit higher. This will give you maximum gluteal activation!

To target different areas of your glutes you can tilt you leg out to the side before you lift it - much like a dog on a fire hydrant ;)

  1. Get onto all fours.
  2. Keep your back as straight as possible.
  3. Raise one foot upwards.
  4. Try keep a 90 degree angle between your hamstring and calf.

  8. Remember to do this in a slow controlled movement.
  9. Repeat.
