Booty Busting Series--Best Exercises to Build that Butt #4: Glute Bridge

Your glute muscles are weakened by all the time you spend sitting down every day, and it's important to correct your muscular balance. If you only focus on your quads and hamstrings to the neglect of your glutes, you run the risk of lower back injury--not to mention a less than snazzy booty. The Bridge is a great Yoga pose to build lower back strength, but it can be easily adapted to make it a perfect glute exercise.

Glute Bridge

Sit with your back against a weight bench, with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips off the floor, raising them until your body forms a straight line between your head, shoulders, back, and knees. You'll feel the squeeze in your glutes rather than your back, thanks to the change in your angle. Really feel the burn in your glutes, and focus on ONLY using your booty muscles to do the work.   Doing this exercise will help to strengthen your glutes, activating them in a way that you wouldn't be able to by doing squats or lunges.
