2-Part Hip Band Leg Activation

Pros of using bands for glutes


Bands provide extra resistance for strengthening and can help engage smaller muscles while performing exercises such as hip thrusts, reverse hypers, abductions, etc.


Bands also help increase blood flow to the backside!





How to "fire" your glutes


Stand nice and tall with your belly button drawn in toward your spine. Then, screw your feet into the ground and slightly squeeze your glutes before you start the exercise.


Below is a quick 2-part lower body superset to get everything firing the way it's supposed to! We're talking hips, quads, hamstrings, glutes - all of it.


The best part? All you need is a hip band (Max Effort Hip Band preferred 💯)


Don't sleep on the hip band - there are countless exercises you can do with it that will get your posterior chain activated and on fire 🔥🔥


**P.S. The hip band is a great rehab tool for injury 🤕





3-5 Set Superset


Banded Half Squats (constant tension): 20-25 reps

Banded Full Squats: To failure


**Rest 2-3 minutes between sets



Other tips


Banded Half Squats

- Focus on keeping tension in your body

- Start at the top and think about screwing/gripping the ground (this will turn everything on)

- Descend into a half squat - stay in control

- Big squeeze (hips, glutes, etc.) at the top of each rep!


Banded Full Squats

- Focus on keeping tension in your body

- Start at the top and think about screwing/gripping the ground (this will turn everything on)
