5 Best Glute Exercises
Glute Exercise #1: Squat Side Kicks – Start with your feet about shoulder width apart. Bend at the knees and drop your butt down till your legs make a 90 degree angle. Stand back up and kick to the side with you right leg (alternate kicking legs each repetition).
Glute Exercise #2: Quick Feet – Start by getting into a lunge position, with one leg extended behind you. Lower your body into the lunge, making sure your opposite knee doesn’t extend past your toes. Staying in the lunge position throughout, quickly jump both feet to one side in a single movement. Return, and continue making small jumps, with the goal of moving quickly. Repeat on opposite side.
Glute Exercise #3: Dipsticks – From a high plank position with core tight and hips level, jump feet up and kick butt with heels. Your weight should come forward onto hands, but shoulders should stay in line over wrists. Extend legs and land lightly on toes to return to starting position
Glute Exercise #4: Jump Squats –Place your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend at the knees while driving your hips back. Keep your chest up and your core tight. Remain in a squat stance as you forcefully push off the ground, jumping to the right side. Check your form then repeat, jumping to the other side. Keep alternating between sides. This exercise will work your quads and glutes. Stand in the same start position as a squat. First do a regular squat, later engage your core and jump up. When you land, lower your body and return it to the squat position again.
Glute Exercise #5: Burpees – Burpees are miraculous exercise to burn extra calories and make you stronger. Position your feet about hip-width apart and squat to the floor, placing your hands on the floor in front of you. Now jump the feet out and come to a pushup position, on the hands and toes with the body in a straight line. Then, return to start position, by jumping the feet back.
