You don’t always need large gym equipment to get a good workout. Heck, you don’t even need to go to the gym at all. You can work out comfortably from home and still work those muscles by just using resistance bands. Not only are they an excellent tool for exercising, but they’re also quite versatile and relatively affordable. Plus, they can be the secret behind getting the booty of your dreams.

Yes, you can use resistance bands for bigger glutes. And it’s actually quite simple. First, you’ll need to get either a mini band set or a resistance band you can tie. Next, you can try out the three exercises below in two to three sets, each with 10 to 15 reps each set. 

Fire Hydrant

Picture a dog taking a leak on a fire hydrant. That’s basically where this exercise’s name comes from, except there are no unwanted liquids involved.

First, you’ll need to wrap your resistance bands around your thighs. Make sure you position them just above the knees. Next, go down on all fours, with your wrists below your shoulders and knees below the hips.

Start by lifting your right knee to the right. Keep your core engaged while doing this to keep the body stable and the spine in a neutral position. Return to the starting position by lowering your knee back to the floor. Complete the reps on the right side and then switch to the left. This is one set.

Kneeling Leg Lift

The name of this next exercise is pretty straightforward. You start in a kneeling position with the resistance band around your thighs just above the knees. You should extend your right leg to the right with the toes pointed and in contact with the floor. Place your left hand on the floor, and you can rest your other hand either behind your head or on your hip. 

Begin the rep by lifting your right toes and extending your right leg so it is even with your hip. You can also go higher if you’re flexible enough. Lower your toes to touch the floor, and this completes one rep. Continue doing the reps on one side before switching to the left. If you have trouble holding the resistance bands in place when doing kneeling leg lifts, you can wrap it under your other knee to keep it from moving. 

Plank Jack

For this exercise, instead of wrapping the resistance band around the thighs, you will be wrapping them around your ankles. First, get into a high plank position. Make sure your wrists are directly under your shoulders and that your hips align with your spine. Your core should also be engaged while your legs are extended straight behind you.

Keeping your core engaged, jump your feet as wide apart as you can. Then, jump them back together to go back to the starting position. This is one rep. Continue each rep as quickly as you can while maintaining an engaged core and keeping your hips level. Don’t forget to take a short break in between sets.
