4 Of The Best Glute-Building Exercises.

March 29, 20243 min read

Believe it or not, your glutes are among the largest and most powerful muscles in your body.

More importantly, they play a huge role in numerous activities and movement patterns, including hip extension, running, jumping, keeping yourself balanced, and more.

Plus, having a set of well-developed glutes will always complement your physique and make you look stronger and more athletic. Not to mention sexy.

But all of this begs the question:

What are the best glute-building exercises out there? Let’s take a look at four of them:

1. The Hip Thrust

If you’re looking to build mass and strength on your posterior, the hip thrust will help you more than any other exercise.

Heavily popularized by Bret Contreras, Ph.D. (also known as The Glute Guy), the hip thrust is his go-to movement for helping clients and readers develop their booty.

The reason for that is simple:

Your glutes are one of the primary muscles that produce hip extension, which is what the hip thrust is all about. Doing this movement pattern helps you target your glutes incredibly well. Plus, given that you get to place a barbell on your hip, the overloading potential is fantastic.





All of this makes the hip thrust a go-to glute-builder with an impeccable overloading potential.

2. Walking Lunges

Walking lunges are a fun and slightly different movement from what you’re used to doing in a gym.

Besides the engagement, the lunge is excellent at recruiting your glutes to help you get back to the starting position and remain stable throughout.

By varying the stride length, you can place more emphasis on your glutes. For instance, lunge forward more, and you’ll involve your glutes to a more significant degree.










As a benefit, the lunge also works on your quads and hamstrings, which makes it a great leg-builder.

3. Romanian Deadlift

Like hip thrusts, the Romanian deadlift is another fantastic compound exercise you should add to your toolbox of glute-builders. Thanks to its unique movement pattern, the Romanian deadlift pushes your hamstrings and glutes to work extra hard in hip extension.

The goal is to keep your knees in a static position and have them almost entirely locked out.








As you descend with the bar, this will place a significant stretch on your posterior chain. Then, come time to go back up, your glutes will exert a lot of effort to extend your hips.


4. Bulgarian Split Squat

Bulgarian split squats are a bit of a masochistic exercise, but they work wonders if you do them diligently and consistently.

Similar to the lunge, these squats have you train one side at a time, but with a twist. Here, your rear leg is elevated, which places a greater load on your front one. As a result, that leg has to work harder throughout each set.














What’s great about the Bulgarian squat is that you can vary the length of your stance to emphasize your quadriceps or glutes better. For instance, research finds an elongated stance with a forward-leaning torso to be better for your glutes. Alternatively, you can extend the front leg a bit less and keep your torso more upright to train your quads better.

Jack is extremely talented - and I highly recommend him if you’re looking for a personal trainer. He creates engaging work out plans, gears them all around recommendations and treatment plans from my Physio. Even when the motivation is low, he keeps you captivated. All around great guy! Go see him!

I am not an athletic person by any means, but as a recreational runner, I had a goal of completing a marathon. I have also never had a personal trainer before, but I wanted to make sure that I would stay injury-free as I increased my running volume. Jack worked with me for my whole marathon training cycle, and I felt very safe and confident in his expertise. He pushed me to develop my strength and endurance in our sessions, while being very mindful of any weaknesses or pain/overwork of my body as my training progressed. He was also very encouraging and patient, and always made sure that I would perform the workouts correctly. I kept seeing improvements in my strength and fitness, and ultimately, I did complete my marathon comfortably and injury-free, and I do credit so much of that to the program that Jack had developed for me.

Jack is a fantastic trainer!!! I've been training with Jack for three months. I can obviously feel myself getting stronger, fitter and healthier. Workout used to be a stressful thing for me, and I also had lower back pain. So it's difficult for me to exercise on a consistent basis. But after I started to train here, except for the weekly personal training, Jack also helps to plan the home gym workouts according to your requests, which frees me from overthinking what kind of workout I need to do. The fitness improvements also give me more motivation to keep going to the gym.

It's definitely a fun environment for people to get training. I feel more comfortable to train here than in huge gyms. You only need to focus on yourself.

Really appreciate it~ Highly recommended!

I've been training with Jack weekly for several months now and have had nothing but a positive experience!

I had a lot of nervousness going into training in general as a queer/trans person recovering from top surgery, but Jack's program has been super affirming and helpful in rebuilding my strength from surgery. I started from basically level zero, and have seen measurable progress (and can do so many pushups now!). He's really good at pushing and motivating, as well as setting up an intuitive plan for outside of sessions. This is the first time in my adult life I've consistently worked out, and felt good doing it. That's so exciting!

The space is comfortable, easy to get to and has a shiny new cable/weight machine. Definitely recommend!
