In this workout I have included several of my favorite exercises along with plyometric exercises at the end. These will all help build up your glutes and improve athletic performance. Plyometric training recruits fast twitch muscle fibers which means building stronger glutes and burning more body fat.
Warm up for 5-10 minutes.
Sumo Deadlift– keep your chest lifted. A modification is to hold one dumbbell with both hands to perform this movement.
Skaters- you can modify this by not using a kettle bell. Advanced option is to superset the sumo squat with skaters.
Cable squats– begin this exercise by stepping back far enough to feel resistance with the bar.
Leg press jumps– set the weight low enough to propel off the platform and complete the suggested number of jumps. If you don’t have a machine like this, perform squat jumps on the floor and hold a 5 or 8 lb dumbbell in each hand. Advanced option is to superset this with the cable squats.
Pullthroughs- step forward to where you feel tension on the rope. When you stand, squeeze the glutes.
Reverse Abduction- we are putting a spin on this machine. Hinge forward slightly at the hips. Push out and pause for 1-2 seconds. Advanced option is to superset this exercise with the pullthroughs.
10 min of plyometrics
I set up a circuit format and it was awesome! You can see the video on instagram @ https://www.instagram.com/ndenisejustice/?hl=en
We spent 40 seconds at each station and we went for 4 rounds. Pace yourself and do your best. If you get through 1-2 rounds, that’s great. Have fun and train with passion!
Here are the stations:
- Weighted broad jumps
- Step jump
- Weighted bosu jumps
- Medicine ball slams
