Strengthening Glutes & Hamstrings

Circuit 1: Band Work

Try these 4 exercises to fire up your glutes and hamstrings. All you need is a medium/heavy resistance band, and optional 25 lb. dumbbell/kettlebell for the first exercise. How-To Video below.

  • 10 reps Shuffle Shuffle Squat
  • 10 reps 2 Side Taps - 2 Reverse Taps (each leg)
  • 15 Floor Touch Hops
  • 15 Hamstring Curls (each leg)
    • Repeat 4 Times Through 

Strength Work Circuit 2: Single-Leg Deadlifts

Single-Leg Deadlifts are excellent for building the glute muscles that runners/endurance athletes often tend to neglect in training. This variation also engages your hamstrings, core, upper back & balance/stability. Use 10-15 lb. dumbbells and perform 3 sets of 10-12 reps on each leg. Watch the How-To Video below for instruction.
