Glutes workout video below…
You know I’m a huge fan of lifting heavy but I’m also a big fan of making exercises more difficult without necessarily going up in weights.
We want to be able to train sustainably and safely and using some techniques that we’re gonna go through in the next couple of weeks you’ll be able to do just that.
Today we’re going to blast our glutes and we’re going to use mini bands as a training aid. If you want to increase you range of motion you watch this video later.
If you’re not familiar with mini bands they do come in a couple of different varieties. you can get the rubberized ones which are just basically large rubber bands or you can get the fabric with elastic.
I actually prefer the fabric with the elastic just because the rubberized bands after you use them for a while they have a tendency to snap and you never quite know when that’s going to happen so we like to avoid that. 😬
Need a set of mini bands? I’ll leave a link to Amazon below so you can check those out.
Adding a mini band to your workouts can improve progress and add difficulty to exercises without having to go heavier in weight!

So without further ado let’s get into this workout…
For each exercise, the goal is to push against the resistance of the mini band.
This can also encourage proper form.
For each exercise, perform 2-3 sets of 20-30 reps, keeping the tempo slow and controlled:
1). Monster walks (glute activation)
2a). Banded goblet squat Superset with
2b). Banded RDLs
3a). Single-leg hip thrust Superset with
3b). Single-leg Bulgarian split squat
4a). Banded reverse hyper on bench Superset with
4b). Banded seated abductor
5). Squat mini-jumps (can use band here, if you’d like).
