The most commonly utilized exercises that work the glutes include squats, lunges, and deadlifts.
To perform a dumbbell squat, grab a set of dumbbells and find some open space. Place your feet roughly shoulder width apart and let your hands hang down by your sides. Keeping your stomach and glutes tight, slowly lower yourself through your knees as if you’re going to sit in a chair. Don’t allow your knees to wobble by keeping your glutes, thighs, and stomach tight as you’re lowering. Once at the bottom, hold for a second, and then slowly come back up pushing through your feet and extending your knees. Perform the desired amount of repetitions and sets.
