How To Use Resistance Band For Glutes

December 20,2022

Resistance bandsare my go-to workout tool. They're portable, easy to use, and versatile—they work your upper and lower body as well as your core. You can use them at home or in the gym, and you don't need any equipment other than a band that's rated for your body weight (or lighter). Resistance bands are great for building strength, endurance, and power in your glutes so they'll look perkier when you wear jeans or shorts. In this article, I'll show you how to get the best results from resistance band exercises specifically designed to strengthen the muscles around these areas:


Resistance Band Glute Bridge

To start, lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and knees bent. Place aresistance bandaround your ankles. Raise your hips off the floor as high as you can, keeping your back straight and lower back flat on the floor. Repeat for 20 to 30 seconds.

Donkey Kicks on Hands and Knees

How to do the donkey kick:

Begin on your hands and knees, with your feet in a wide stance.

Bend one knee out to the side of your body, keeping your other leg straight.

Raise your foot as high as possible without losing balance or hyperextending that thigh. Make sure to keep both hips facing forward throughout this movement!

Standing Side Steps with Resistance Loop Band

How to do the exercise:

Stand with feet hip-width apart.

Bend your knees, with the resistance band secured around one ankle.

Lift your leg out to the side and back behind you as far as you can go. Return to start position and repeat 10 times on each leg for two sets total, or use more or fewer reps depending on how advanced your fitness level is.

What muscles are worked?

The gluteus medius, gluteus minimus and tensor fasciae latae help rotate the hip externally while abducting (moving away from midline) at the same time; they also assist in flexing (bending) the hip laterally when combined with other muscles of this region such as quadriceps femoris long head and piriformis (for example). The tensor fasciae latae also plays an important role in stabilizing lateral pelvis during gait by preventing anterior tilt of pelvis during stance phase of gait cycle so that upright posture is maintained through single support phase where only one foot contacts ground at any given time while swinging opposite leg forward; this action would otherwise cause individual leaning backwards which would lead unstable walking pattern if not corrected immediately
