10-Minute Resistance Band Butt Workout

If you want to tone your glutes, you should be doing this resistance band butt workout. You may already be doing squats, lunges, or other bodyweight moves but if you really want to build a better butt, you should be using resistance bands.

I’m a huge fan of resistance bands because they are easy to use at home, the office, or on the road. Bands offer the same benefits as other resistance equipment without being big and heavy.

Even better, bands can offer more muscle recruitment because you can use multiple muscle groups at once. If you want to lift and firm up your backside, try these four resistance band moves that work your glutes.

Choosing The Right Resistance Bands

You should reach moderate to maximum muscle fatigue between 15-20 repetitions. If your band is too easy, you’ll know. If it’s too hard, you won’t be able to complete the full range of motion.

If you’re new to resistance bands, I’d recommend this C9 Comfort Grip Resistance Band from Target! The handles are padded, and the resistance level is excellent for beginners to intermediate.

For each of the four moves below, perform 2-3 sets of 15-20 repetitions of each, 3-5 days a week. Give this workout a try, and “Bottoms Up!”

Basic Squat

  1. Stand on the resistance band with feet hip-width apart, holding the band behind the back of your arms.
  2. Slowly lower into a seated position, pushing your glutes behind you and putting the weight into your heels.
  3. Now just as slowly, begin to return to starting position, making sure to squeeze your buns as you come up.
  4. Keep your abdominals tight throughout the move and your spine long; do not bend forward.

Lunge With Bonus Bicep Curl

  1. Place the ball of your right foot on the band while holding the handles in front of your thighs; palms up.
  2. Step the ball of the left foot behind you, keeping the heel off the floor.
  3. Slowly lower the back knee down until the front knee forms a 90-degree angle.
  4. Now press through the front heel while lifting your body back up to the starting position. Keep the spine tall throughout the move.
  5. BONUS: As you lower down, perform a bicep curl with the band. Do lunges on each side.
