Workout of the Month: Band Workout for Glute Strength

In Part 3 of this strength workout, Allison Westfahl gives us banded exercises to work on glute strength.

You’ve worked on hamstring eccentric strength and your rotational core. Now, in this last part of the Workout of the Month, Allison Westfahl shows us a training routine for building glute strength.

Glute strength is important for endurance athletes because the glutes are the powerhouse of the lower body. If your glutes aren’t strong and firing properly, problems could show up in other areas like the knees, feet, or lower back. These areas are really just the victims of poor glute strength. 

Here are three exercises you can do at home. These include abduction, hip circles, leg sweeps, clam shells, reverse clam shells, and kickbacks.
