Having well-toned glutes not only enhances your physical appearance but also plays a crucial role in overall lower body strength and stability.
While gym equipment like resistance bands and weights can be effective, you don’t necessarily need them to achieve a firm and sculpted derriere.
In this article, we will explore a range of equipment-free exercises that specifically target your glute muscles, helping you achieve the firmness you desire.
WARM UP WITH SQUATS
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart and your chest raised.
Extend your hands in front to help maintain balance.
Start by sitting down and then get up as if you were sitting in an imaginary chair. Keep your face and head facing forward.
Lower your body down, so that your thighs are parallel to the floor. Put all your weight on your heels. Keep your body tense and push your body up through your heels to return to the starting position.
Do 12 repetitions.
Stand up with a bench or step in front of you.
Starting on your right foot, step onto the bench, tapping your left foot against the surface while keeping your weight on your right heel.
Lower your left foot back to the ground while keeping your right foot on the bench.
Repeat 3 series of 12 repetitions and then change legs.
First of all, you must stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands on your hips.

Finally, take your body back (starting position).

Exhale. Keeping the knee bent, release and raise the right leg until the thigh is in line with the spine, making sure the foot remains flexed.
Inhale. Lower your right leg to return to the starting position, but do not rest your knee on the mat.
Complete 10 repetitions on the same side, before repeating the remaining repetitions on the other side.
