Knee pain can be frustrating. But, it doesn’t mean you can’t target certain areas such as your glutes. There’s a number of butt exercises that work your backside without putting strain on your knees. They just require some thinking beyond the typical squat. The knee is the largest joint in the body and one of the most vulnerable to injury. This makes maintaining proper form and technique during any exercise crucial to knee health. Optimal form and function of the entire body is required for knee function to remain at is most pain free place.
Even if your knees are A-OK, these alternative glute moves are great for switching up your go-to routine. (Because doing the exact same moves every time is fine, but you’ll see even more results with a little exercise variation.)
How it works: Do each move for the number of reps indicated and then repeat the video one to two times. As we move together Ill be providing modifications and form tips. (Want to get your upper body involved too? Try this arm circuit workout next.) Here are the moves we have planned together:
