I like a good booty workout, especially when it incorporates moves that target my glutes with an intensity that makes me go, “Yep, I’ll definitely feel that in the morning!” That’s why I was particularly happy with an at-home Glute Guide from NASM-certified personal trainer Bailey Ducommun. It consists of eight weeks total: two four-week phases, two arm and two butt workouts per week. It took me an extra month (three instead of two) to complete the guide, but the important thing is that there were exercises in both phases that I couldn’t get enough of — meaning, I really felt my glutes working after repeated sets.
My favourite move, which I’ve written about in the past, is what she calls a Bulgarian Romanian deadlift (Bulgarian RDL). It’s a Bulgarian split squat and Romanian deadlift combo that will target your quads, hamstrings, and glutes. Bailey told POPSUGAR in a previous interview that that’s the reason she likes to pair these specific movements together: “they complement one another well for a full leg burn targeting your quads, glutes, and hamstrings.”
Ahead, check out the Bulgarian RDL and other exercises from Bailey’s Glute Guide that I liked most because I didn’t have to wonder if they were working: I knew they were. I still incorporate them into my sweat sessions today, even after finishing the program. Take a look, and try some of these for yourself!
