In addition to helping you look good, having strong glutes helps you avoid injuries while also stabilizing your hips and controlling knee and ankle movement. Here are some of the most effective workouts you can adopt to develop powerful and toned glutes.

Alternating Reverse Lunges

Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and step back with your right leg, keeping your left leg in place. Once both knees are bent at around 90 degrees, bring your right leg forward and switch to the left. You can also hold dumbbells or a barbell to make the movement more challenging.

Step Up

Stand in front of a small step or box with dumbbells in your hands. Place your left foot on the step and push your body up, bringing your right knee up past your waist. Return to the starting position and switch sides.

Walking Lunges

Stand with your feet together and lunge forward with your right foot, bending your knee until you hit a 90-degree angle. Push up with your right leg and put your left leg forward, repeating the movement.
