Squats are one of the greatest gluteus maximus workouts. Hips, thighs, calves, and core are worked.
Lunges work butts. Staggered stances need gluteal stabilization. The position also works your front glutes harder. Lunges also work hamstrings, quads, and calves.
Step-ups work butts too. Start with a knee-bending platform. Use the second stair and the rail for balance if that's too much.
This action targets the gluteus medius and minimus, while earlier workouts focused on the gluteus maximus. Squatting still engages the gluteus maximus.
Another glute exercise is the ball hip thrust. The ball creates instability and makes your lower body work. Weights on the upper thighs increase intensity.
Hip extensions are ideal for targeting the glutes, whereas complex exercises stimulate numerous muscles at once. Shoulder and core activation will help.
This one-legged deadlift is very beneficial for butts, glutes, hamstrings, and lower back. Doing anything on one leg increases effort and uses stabilizer muscles to balance
