Welcome to our Glute Exercises Main Page!
Here we’ve linked to all of our weight training exercises that primarily target your glute muscles: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus—your butt. Despite being your body’s most powerful collection of muscles, these muscles are neglected by most lifters (at least male lifters).
Shut Up and Let Me Skip to the Exercises!
However, strengthening your glutes will help you:
- Grab the attention of Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels
- Increase your max on any exercise that utilizes your posterior chain (Hamstrings, Glutes, Lower Back, Calves) such as Barbell Squats, Deadlifts, Power Cleans, etc.
- Run faster and jump higher
- Avoid injury
Some of the best leg exercises for your glutes like Barbell and Dumbbell Squats, Lunges, Step Ups, Hack Squats and the Front Squat primarily target your quadriceps or hamstrings and secondarily work your glutes and calves.
