Simply doing the pull through exercise kneeling is a fantastic variation for GLUTE Development.

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.

My goal is to give out training advice that has helped me tremendously. I am 54 yrs old and have been training almost all my life. Weight training...bodybuilding, and powerlifting have been my focus. I ventured into cycling, road and mountain biking and triathlon for a while. Lost lots of weight in order to make myself competitive. Then decided to come back to my roots....weight training. I have a very athletic background, having participated in football, baseball and track in my school days. I am very proud of my accomplishments racing motocross and jet skiis. Also ejoyed windsurfing , kayaying, water skiing and snow boarding/skiing as well. Rick Lange
