Hi, I'm Holly Del Rosso, and this is isolation workouts for your upper glutes. The glutes are a really hard muscle to actually get activated, so what we're going to do is practice glute activation, so that way you can get the glutes you always wanted: Lean-looking, high up, not drooping or sagging -- you want them to look good. One of my favorite glute exercises for isolating the glutes is glute raises on a stepper. If you don't have a stepper, don't worry -- you can use a bench at any gym, or even the ground. So, you're going to get on your stepper, leg is going to come in back straight. Back flat, lifting your leg up as high as you can. Most important thing is that your back is not arching and it's super sturdy. Try not to dip your hips out to the side -- you don't want to go like this. You want to make your hips as square as possible. And, our final glute activation and isolation workout, you need a resistance band -- mild to medium resistance. You're going to have your foot hooking underneath it, bringing your hands on the ground with the straps, kicking your back leg up just like we did before -- the donkey kick. You're going to feel a lot of pressure on that glute -- this is so important for that glute isolation. Make sure you're feeling it in your glute muscle. Back is flat. Still make sure that hip isn't leaning over to the side. For best results, perform three sets of 25 reps of each exercise on each leg.
