Forget squats—this six-move home workout takes 10 minutes to sculpt strong glutes

Forget squats, if you want to develop your glutes, this 10-minute home workout is a must. I’m not going to lie to you – I hate butt exercises. Whether I’m casually wearing them to my daily leg workouts as a finisher or warming up with glute activation exercises, I have to breathe deeply and seriously pump myself up.


Yes, I literally teach glutes for a living, so it’s counterintuitive. But every trainer has an Achilles heel, and the gluteal exercises are mine. So you better believe I was looking for a short (I repeat, short), fiery, and engaging workout.


YOU CAN PERFORM TRAIN WITH GAINSBYBRAINS (Opens in a new tab) Session as a bodyweight muscle exercise or grab a dumbbell, kettlebell, or resistance band to add intensity (check out the best adjustable dumbbells and the best resistance bands here). Either way, expect to give your glutes a good pump in just 10 minutes and six moves.

The 10-Minute Glute Workout is part of a broader 24-Day FIT Challenge, but is highly effective as a stand-alone fiber exercise and can be done regularly. If you need leg day inspiration, why not try the 7-Move Kettlebell Leg Row and add it as a final workout?
