Are You Working With Resistance Band For A Strong Butt?

Resistance Band Butt Workout

As we all are quarantined in our homes, and it’s getting tougher for us to keep ourselves fit in this situation. When we look for a tool for our fitness that ante on our workout strength, particularly those who target our butt, the first tool that comes in our mind is none other than a resistance band.

A resistance band is the most convenient tool that you can have to do workouts, and it’s not that expensive also, and best for the people who aren’t able to carry heavily weighted dumbles. For your glutes, it works great and works on your backside from all angles. It’s a smart choice for those who work all day on their desk. It helps you to be stronger all over.

In lunges and squats, it can be common for your quads to take over when you want your butt to do the majority of the work. You must have heard from a trainer saying “quad-dominant”, this is what they talk about. 

Those People can overuse their quad muscles during certain movements who are quad-dominant. When your hips are tight, you will be able to do squats from your knees instead of your hips and puts the pressure on your legs instead of your butt.

1) Ankle Jumping Jack
  • Around your ankles, place a mini band loop

  • Jump your feet in and out for 1 rep, keep a bent knee position all the time and land softly each time.
  • Complete all your reps.

 

Don’t let your body pop up too high, and try to put weight mostly in your heels while landing, not on your toes.

Make sure to keep your shoulders back and back flat so you’re not hunching over.

Make sure to lift your chest and core engaged and that you are not arching your back.

  • Around your ankles, place a mini band loop
  • Lie on your right side and prop up your head using the right hand.
  • Bend down slightly at the hip in such a way that your thighs are perpendicular to your hip. Join your feet together, elevate your feet to hip height, while your knees still touching the floor.
  • Join your feet together as you lift your top knee (left knee) towards the ceiling.
  • Now, slowly bring down your left knee to your starting 
  • Slowly lower your left knee down to return to your starting position. That’s 1 rep.
  • Complete your all reps and then repeat them on the right side.

 

If it’s getting too difficult for you to open up your knees with your feet in the air, leave them on the ground and do the same movement. This is a good activation exercise to do before squats and lunges.

6) Donkey Kick 
  • Loop a band around the bottom of your right and left foot ankle. Start in an all-fours position with your knees under your hips, your core engaged, and wrists under your shoulder.

  • Bring back your left knee to floor for 1 rep.
  • Switch to the other side after doing all your reps on one side.

 

The more time you will hold at the top, the longer the muscle is under tension- which forces your glutes to work harder.

7) Supine Leg Extension
  • Lie faceup on the floor, wrap a resistance band around your left foot and then hold each end of the band in both the ends. To feel the core engage, prop yourself up on your elbows and this is your starting position. 
  • With the band still wrapped around your left foot, bring your left knee up and towards the chest to keep your shin parallel to the floor. Pause at the top, and then push your foot away from you to straighten your leg and return to your starting position. Throughout the process, keep your core engaged.
  • Switch to the other after doing all your reps on one side

 

8) Rainbow Kick 
  • Start in an all-fours position with your knees directly under your hips, wrists directly under your shoulders, and core engaged. Wrap a resistance band around your right foot and hold one end of it in both the hands. Push your right foot back to straighten your body so just your toes only touch the floor. This will be your starting position.
  • Lift your right foot towards the left, making an arch, and bring it down to tap the floor on the outside of your left foot. Lift it again immediately, reversing an arch, and tap the floor where you started.
  • Each tap counts as 1 rep.
  • Switch to the other after doing all your reps on one side

 

Note: This is a glute move, so it’s not about how high you can keep your foot, especially if that means you’re putting a deep arch in your low back to bring your foot higher. Focus on squeezing your glutes and engaging your hamstrings to lift your foot each time.
