A fitness trainer came up with the best glutes exercises for a better butt. The exercises can be performed at a gym or there are also alternatives in case you don’t have access to most equipment.
We have mentioned before that the glutes are one of 8 important muscle groups that people tend to neglect. This is about to change.
Fitness trainer and Kinesiology graduate Jeremy Ethier has shared what he considers to be the best glutes exercises for a better butt.
Ethier is not alone in the video. He is joined by Brett Contreras, the self-titled glute guy, inventor of the hip thrust exercise.
BOXROX has previously written about Brett Contreras and came up with the ultimate guide for bigger and stronger glutes.
Ethier divides the best glutes exercises for a better butt into categories. “If we want to maximise glutes development, then you want to ensure you’re training with at least one exercise from each of the following categories,” he says.
