Glutes & Back

Finally caught up to today! I did this workout at a faster pace than usual, so I really got a great cardio and strength workout in together. All exercises performed in supersets.

Straight leg deadlift
Parallel lat pulldown

Good morning’s
BB bent over row

BB hip thrusters
Cable row

Hamstring curl
Reclining cable curl
Cable rear delt pull

Barbell hip thrusters are my favorite way to target the glutes. They are basically like a glute bridge you would do from the floor, except you have a barbell across your hips and your back is against a bench. This increases your range of motion. You may think that you don’t need a heavy weight for this exercise, but your glutes stabilize you as you walk around all day. They are much stronger than you realize – so don’t shy away from the weights!
