Sumo Deadlift

Place your feet in a wide position with your feet a few inches outside your shoulders and point your toes slightly out away from your body. As you squat down make sure you are keeping your chest up and pushing up through your heels to prevent pulling up with your back. Be sure you are forcing your knees out in aline with your toes. You can grip the bar with both your palms facing you, or with one facing you and one facing away.


Hip Thrusts 

8 full reps straight into 5 pulse (or half) reps. Make sure to hold & squeeze at the top of each rep.


Reverse Lunges

Place the barbell on your back on your traps above your shoulder blades. If the bar feels uncomfortable you can put a barbell pad on or use dumbbells at your sides. Stand with your feet hip width apart and slowly step on leg back until it reaches the ground. Both your knees should be in about a 90 degree angle. Push up through your front heel and bring your other leg back up into the starting position. You can alternate legs each time or you can do the reps on one leg and then switch to the other.



You can perform this exercise on a machine, with a barbell, or dumbbells. Keep a slight bend in your knees and push your hips back, increasing the stretch through your glutes and push your hips forward squeezing your glutes.


Glute Kick Backs 

You can perform this exercise with an ankle strap or if you don’t have one you can use a small handle attachment and put the top of your foot in it. Set the cable all the way to the ground and take a step out so you can create some resistance but also be close enough to hold onto the cable tower for balance. You should be facing the cable tower with a slight bend in your hips about 45° leaning forward. Put the strap or handle around one of your ankles and kick straight back. You should be squeezing your glute at the top and slowly coming back down being sure to not bring your torso up as you kick back. Hold on to the cable tower and slightly lean into it for better balance.


Lying Hamstring Curls 

Slow and controlled is key here. Your hips shoulder never leave the pad and your back should not be arched. Squeeze hard at the top and slowly bring your feet back down to the starting position. You want to go all the way back to the starting position with each rep without completely setting the weight down, keep the tension the the whole time.
