Glute exercises have a huge impact on your core and body strength; therefore, it’s extremely important to incorporate these rear-focused exercises into your fitness routine. The moves can help balance your muscle strength throughout your figure and, of course, lead to a stronger booty. To further your journey with body strengthening, the founder of Love Yoga, Sian Gordon Fujikawa, is sharing five different glute exercises to add to your next at-home workout session.
Learn step-by-step instructions on how to strengthen your glutes from the wellness guru below.
Move One: “From down dog, lift a leg and open the hip without collapsing the waist. Straighten the leg and lift and lower 20 times. Switch sides and repeat on each side.”
Move Two: “From a plank, walk your legs. Keep the hips steady, use the belly and the butt, and release the shoulders down the back. Use your glutes to lift the legs. Repeat 10 times each leg.”
Move Three: “From all fours, bend a knee, keeping the pelvis stable, belly in, and kick the foot up 50 times. Switch sides.”
Move Four: “From kneeling, step a foot forward, tuck back your toes, and lift back your knee an inch off the ground. Draw your feet together isometrically. Hold for 15 deep breaths, switch sides, and repeat for each leg.”
Move Five: “From standing, lift one heel to buttocks. Keep the knees lined up and the front body lifted. Lift and lower heel, squeezing at the top, 20 times. Switch and repeat on each side.”
