Glute Training Workouts

Who doesn't love glute training workouts?

Everyone wants stronger, leaner glutes, but very few people are training in a way that will make it happen. Most people fail to reach their potential with glute training because they either train too light or don't work the glute muscles through the full range of motion. What both problems come down to is a lack of overload that is necessary to grow the glutes.

Glute Training Exercises

For complete development of the glute muscles, you should perform exercises that overload the muscle at the full stretch position, the mid-range, and the fully contracted position. For example, your workout could include:

Glute Training Protocols

When programming reps and sets for glute training, use varied protocols. Some glute exercises give you the best results with high repetitions in the 20 to 25 rep range, whereas others are lower rep exercises with the sweet spot being in the 8 to 12 "hypertrophy" range. For example, you'll generally get the best results with deadlifts and good mornings from 8 to 12 reps. In contrast, single-leg hip thrusts and the banded clam exercise can be performed at high reps (20 to 25 reps) for the best results.

Give this workout a try, then consider adding exercises that target the other glute muscles. For example, the banded clam exercise and the side step-up will help stimulate growth in the gluteus medius and the gluteus minimus. To show you how it’s done, here is a glute-emphasis workout that includes side step-ups:

Weeks 1-2 (Accumulation)
