Here are a list of glute-reboot exercises you can do to deliver wonderful bum-affirming results.
Plyometric Squats a.k.a Jump Squats: 5 Sets of 10 Reps
While retaining your squat position, you must squat down followed by jumping into the air. Before landing in a squat position again, ensure that your knees are soft and that you land softly. In the beginning don’t be hard on yourself. Start slowly and repeat gradually.
Deep Squat a.k.a Arse-2-Grass Squat: 5 Sets of 12 Reps
In deep squats, you want to activate your glutes so we want to drop our bottom below the 90 degree mark. Anything below 90 degrees is glute work so aim to get your bum to touch your heels. Ensure your core is engaged, feet shoulder width apart and when you do the squat, ensure your knees stay equal distance apart throughout the whole movement. When you stand up fully, ensure you squeeze your glutes and keep your core engaged and active.
PlyoBox Step Up: 4 Sets of 15 Reps (on each leg) If you have access to a 24' Plyobox, stand to the side of the box with one foot planted firmly on the top of the plyobox and the other on the floor. Straighten the leg with the foot on the plyobox raising your body into the upright position. With the other leg, raise the knee until your hip is 90 degrees and your thigh is parallel to the floor. Repeat this until your thighs start to burn.
Plyometric Lunges: 5 Sets of 20 Reps (on each leg)
Plyometric or Lunge Jumps are a great way to activate your glutes, quads and core all in one swift movement. It is also a great way to improve your balance. Start in the Lunge position making sure that your back knee is touching the ground. Jump up and switch legs so that your back leg is now in front and your front leg is now at the back. Repeat this in an explosive yet controlled manner to increase energy requirement and in doing so turning this into a weight loss workout wonder.
