All Athletes should develop their glutes maximally for improved performance. Typically, squats and deadlifts were assumed to provide all the glute stimulation you would need. This is not true. Anyway, I am going beyond the scope of this short article here. If you want more on this check out Bret Contreras’s site (google it).
An exercise that I have never seen discussed that is easy to set up and really hits the glutes hard is doing the pull through exercise KNEELING. It replicates the hip thrust action of doing hip thrusters or barbell glute bridges. Once again there are plenty of tutorials on how to do the pull through online. ( try the regular version, but make sure you do the kneeling version ) One point , you must have a way to brace your feet when doing these. Use two by fours, plates, or in the case of my own device the bar which is meant to place your feet against when doing low rows.
