No squats, no lunges, and no jumping throughout the next 20-minutes of this intense low impact lower body workout. Whether you’re coming back from an injury, need to take some impact off the joints and still want to tone and feel the fire through your backside, this workout is for you! In just 20 minutes these exercises will WORK the butt!

While compound movements such as squats and lunges are effective for the glutes, there may be times when you want to train the glutes at home without any weights and while staying lower impact on the joints. This can all be possible with this quick at home 20-minute low impact workout. Exercises in this workout include:

  • Warm-Up: Inner Thigh Activation
  • Glute Bridges – Targets the Gluteus Maximus (think a squat without the impact on your knees)
  • Clamshell – Targets the Gluteus Medius or what we know it as the Side Glute
  • Table Top Leg Lifts + Glute Presses – Targets all 3 heads of the glute (gluteus medius, gluteus maximus, gluteus minimus)
  • Bonus: Core

These are great exercises that can be done with just the weight of your body or, as shown in this video, with a mini resistance loop. The mini resistance loop will add a little extra resistance to the muscle throughout each movement. If you’re looking to increase lower body strength, tack this workout onto the end of another workout or have it be your stand-alone workout of the day. If you’re looking for even more of a booty burn, finish the workout and press play again to really target the lower body and its slow twitch muscle fibers!
