2 Exercises to Lift and Shape Your Glutes


Just a quick video with two exercises that aren't typically in standard leg or glute workouts. The top video is curtsy or princess lunges. Do these by grabbing a step and adding blocks to the bottom if you'd like an extra challenge. Step backwards off the step putting your weight into the leg that is still on the step, focusing on squeezing the glute. I did 3 sets of 20. 


The bottom video is a little hard to see (I didn't have my videographer with me!) but I worked my abductors using the seated leg press machine. Sit in the machine sideways with your foot parallel to the floor. Push through your heel and focus on using and squeezing that glute! I did 4 sets of 15.

Let me know if you give them a try!

  1. Good idea with the leg press machine. I'm 5 1/2 months pregnant so I can't lay on back anyway. Gonna try this tomorrow at the gym! Just fyi, I LOVE exercise videos or examples of different ways to work different muscles...keep em coming! I'm not creative in the gym :)
