In this episode of overrated/underrated, I delve into various topics related to booty influencers, including squeezing glutes at the top of a squat, hovering on the seated hip abduction machine, doing stepdowns off the assisted chin/dip station, side lying single leg leg presses, raising the non-working leg during step-ups, doing kickbacks on the smith machine and hip thrusts off the leg extension/curl machine, doing kickbacks and/or wearing bands while on the stepmill/stairmaster, doing squatty lateral band walks, lateral lunges off the Bosu ball, plyos for glutes, band burnouts for glutes, circuit training for glutes, various gadgets for glute development, and combining movements for glutes. I realize that I should have broken each of these into separate videos but oh well. You live and learn. I hope you enjoy the video, shout out to Alex Razo for editing it. Please like and share if you deem it to be valuable.
