Home workout: 30-minute GLUTES for beginners (video)

This home workout targets the glute muscles. For those at a beginner level, you can perform the movements with no equipment: just your bodyweight. To progress the difficulty of the exercises and make your glutes work harder, you can add a weight and a resistance band as demonstrated in the video.

How to do the workout

The workout is arranged into supersets, alternating between movements targeting the gluteus maximus and gluteus medius. The gluteus maximus is the largest of the glute muscles. The gluteus medius, or side glute, muscle is also important to train as it helps to improve hip stability and balance. There is minimal rest between each exercise to increase the intensity of the workout and help to burn more calories.

Throughout the workout, the eccentric (muscle lengthening) portion of the movements is performed at a slow and controlled tempo. This makes the glutes work harder. You can read more about exercise tempo here.
