Training your glutes with tips from Maria Ludeke, owner of Sweat Practice


Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)

Maria Ludeke, Owner of Sweat Practice shares simple exercises to get your glutes in shape.

Strengthen and define your glutes at home with just a resistance band. Exercising your glutes is important at all ages and stages of life. Gaining glute muscle protects your low back and knees, which is especially important if you have a day job that requires long hours of sitting. Building glute muscle creates better balance, preventing falls and hip injuries. Glute strength increases athletic performance, like speed, agility, and jumping. Training your glutes also burns more calories than any other body part since it’s your largest and most powerful muscle group. To work your glutes at home all you need is a resistance band and 10 minutes to complete a few rounds of exercises. This can be done while watching TV or talking on the phone. Make it an enjoyable and regular part of your routine to gain the most benefit.
