Building up the booty with this resistance band workout! I use bands both in and out of the gym. While the set up might seem a little daunting it’s actually fairly easy to use. Once you get used to the door mount you are off and running! Then you’ll have the option and the flexibility to do this workout anywhere. Resistance bands are super affordable and compact (say for traveling). Let’s get busy with working that booty.
Build Your Booty Resistance Band Workout
Our body part focus for these exercises is the booty! Plus, a little bit of work on those hamstrings. I believe that an emphasis on that lower body area is an absolutely game changer. Building muscle in the lower body area is key. Not only will it add to your shape of course, but as you build more muscle you’ll be burning more calories. Win-win.
If you have bands at home or have seen them at the gym, but you aren’t sure what to do with them, these exercises are going to be perfect for you. I’ve been sharing different band workouts with a different body part focus – all done with a simple band and a door anchor. Pretty easy peasy once you get the hang of the set up. I linked up the other workouts below for you so be sure to check them out.
There are a lot of options in terms of adding resistance training into your fitness routine. The best part about strength training is that you can customize it to your level of skill. If you are a beginner here you’ll choose a light band to get started with these workouts.
As you get stronger you can gradually make it more challenging. Add more reps. Increase your resistance. These are all perfect ways to start to get stronger and get the results you want to see.
It’s great to be able to add bands to work the muscles in slightly different ways. We are definitely going to be working on shaping up those hamstrings and the booty.
Choosing Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are inexpensive, portable and versatile. You’ll be amazed at how many different exercises that you can do with them. Bands are great no matter your level of fitness because it adds intensity to these exercises but are still low-impact.
Don’t let that have you think that these exercises are easy! If it doesn’t feel like enough of a workout you then you’ll have to add a band with more resistance.
These 6 resistance band exercises are designed to build your booty in an effective workout:
- Seated Abduction
- Seated Adduction
- Pull Through
- Prone Ham Curl
- Hip Thrust
- Good Morning
GENERAL FORM CUES
- Align the spine from the back of the head to the tailbone and create a firm but relaxed brace.
- Pull up your pelvic floor and draw the belly button into the spine; connect them deeply together.
- Keep the torso upright and remember to think slow and controlled in the movements.
- Remember to pause and complete a full contraction of the glutes.
You need to always been getting stronger, because to see true results it’s not just about finding a new workout. You have to push yourself and when it gets to easy you need to vary your movements and make it more challenging. Don’t get stuck in doing the same routine over and over! Pay attention and push yourself when it’s time to increase.
