Who wants bigger glutes? I know I sure do. I don't think I'll ever stop trying to get them suckers larger.

In my day, I've tried almost every glute exercise, movement, variation, etc. that's out there. I don't discriminate.

Most recently I've fallen in love with mini-bands. I use them in almost every workout, whether it's a quick glute finisher at the end of my training session or as a stand-alone circuit.

If you want to feel dem buns working (and growing), try incorporating some band work into your programming.

So, let's get to it. Here are a handful of my favorite moves:

1. Sumo band walks

2. Lateral band walks

3. Band Abductions

4. Band clamshells

5. Band frog pumps (many thanks to Bret Contreras for coming up with these)

So now it's time for you to give these exercises a try! I've put together a handy printable circuit for you with all the exercises mentioned above. You can download your free printable workout and get a list of my recommended bands at the bottom of this page.
