I didn’t intend to post this on international glute day a.k.a. hump day, I swear it was a coincidence! But the timing works out if you’re looking for a new workout to try out today if you’re training glutes! I always make sure to incorporate specific glute workouts regularly into my training cycle since hip health is so important and shouldn’t be overlooked. In fact, I’ve been working on a glute program that you can do at home with hardly any equipment at all! At most it requires things that you probably already have in your home like a chair, steps, and a couch. I’m really excited about this because I know I harp on about glute health haha! But truly it’s something I always tell my clients they should not overlook.
Warning: this workout may or may not cause your cheekers to feel like they’re gonna fall off haha! It was a killer workout that I came up with to specifically target the glutes and a touch of hamstrings (two muscle areas that are notoriously weak for me). Overall, glute training is very important and it’s not for the main reason you see with girls training the booty all over fitness social media because they want to get a bigger butt. First and foremost glute health can help prevent a lot of injuries and I mean a lot ranging from keeping your low back in good shape to maintaining the correct chain reaction of muscles down your leg. I know this from personal experience as well and I can say that strong, effective glutes make all the difference.
Hey guys! I have another workout for you that has been approved by both myself and Amanda. As I’ve mentioned before, she’s a bit of a workout mooch haha so when I come up with a workout I usually send it to her and she gives me her feedback on what she thinks about it. It actually does help to have someone else try out a workout and tell me their experience of it. Which is why I always ask for you guys to let me know what you think if you try one out 🙂
Anyway, I’ve been so excited lately because most workouts are on the table in terms of not having to worry about my lower back/hip/sciatica problems. I still have not squatted or deadlifted, though, or any heavier lower body lifting for that matter because I want to take it extremely easy. But I tried out a lighter leg workout at home and I’m happy to say it was a success!
People can underestimate the power of accessory work and, in particular, resistance bands. I designed this workout to be low impact but high volume with a good burn so what would be more perfect than a hip circle? I have this one and absolutely love it! Don’t worry you can still use a regular resistance band if you don’t have a hip circle but honestly it’s one of the top things I’d recommend investing in. It’s great for working all three glute muscles as well as strengthening less dominant leg muscles plus you can use it for correcting your form during exercises like squats.
