When it comes to exercise, all of us at Girls Gone Strong are advocates of the Minimum Effective Dose.
We want to give you the biggest bang for your workout buck, and big movements such as squats, deadlifts, lunges, and all of their glorious variations are always top priority when it comes to lower body training.
But… or should I say, butt…. There may be times when you want to add in a little extra glute work without further taxing your legs.
Targeted glute work is fantastic as part of a warm-up for activation or between sets of upper body exercises if you’d like to get some additional work in. Is this absolutely necessary? No. But you may enjoy it, and it might help improve the strength and appearance of your glutes.
