Glute Exercises

Learn how to do each of these Leg Exercises and Immediately Add to your Glute Workouts, Leg Workouts, and other Weight Training Programs


Welcome to our Glute Exercises Main Page!

Here we've linked to all of our weight training exercises that primarily target your glute muscles: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus—your butt. Despite being your body's most powerful collection of muscles, these muscles are neglected by most lifters (at least male lifters).

Shut Up and Let Me Skip to the Exercises!


However, strengthening your glutes will help you:
  • Grab the attention of Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels

  • Increase your max on any exercise that utilizes your posterior chain (Hamstrings, Glutes, Lower Back, Calves) such as Barbell Squats, Deadlifts, Power Cleans, etc.

  • Run faster and jump higher

  • Avoid injury

Glute Exercises


If you think this list is weak, don't worry, we agree. The reason it's so small is because we've only included the leg exercises that primarily target your glutes.

Some of the best leg exercises for your glutes like
Barbell and Dumbbell Squats, Lunges, Step Ups, Hack Squats and the Front Squat primarily target your quadriceps or hamstrings and secondarily work your glutes and calves. Therefore, these popular leg exercises and 34 others that work your glute muscles are featured on our Quadriceps Exercises and Hamstring Exercises pages.
