Best Resistance Bands for Glutes
These are the cheapest and simplest kind of bands on the market, often used for physiotherapy to add resistance to therapeutic movements. Although they’re not the very best resistance bands for glutes, they make it onto the shortlist because of their sheer versatility and super low price.
With a little ingenuity, these bands can be used to add resistance to literally any movement. You can hook or tie them onto other objects, wrap them around your body or tie them into a loop. One downside is that they don’t last as long as most other bands. But at this price, who cares?
Example Exercise: Lying Kick
Originally designed as pull-up assist bands, these beauties have practically unlimited uses and can be used to work out every single part of your body. They can be anchored to other objects, doubled up and adapted to 1000s of different exercises.
For working your ass, you can use them to make squats harder (no need for weights) or for doing various kinds of glute-kickbacks, deadlifts or lunge movements.
Example exercise: Kneeling Donkey Kick
Almost the perfect glute-building tool, mini resistance bands can be looped around your thighs and used to perform a variety of leg- and bum-building exercises. Their concentric pressure provides focussed resistance on your hips, thighs and glutes, resulting in a beautiful round booty and wide hips.
You can use mini resistance loops while doing squats, lunges and knee raises. For purely isolating your glutes and hips, try doing glute kickbacks, clamshells and bridge thrusts. They’re also surprisingly effective for doing ab exercises.
Example exercise: Glute Kickback
Here it is, the world’s very best resistance band for glutes, hips and thighs. Basically the same as a mini resistance loop except much wider, thicker and with a fabric covering for durability. While most mini bands go up to around 40LB of resistance, this glute band packs a massive 150LB. The result is the toughest glute workout you will ever experience. Not for the faint-hearted.
If you’re new to strength training, it’s better to start with a regular mini resistance band before moving onto a glute band. Once your glute muscles are reasonably strong, you can take things to the next level by using a glute band to supercharge your lower-body workout!
