Make Your Glutes Sore For Days With 8 Low-Impact, Ultra-Effective YouTube Butt Workouts
How do you work your glutes without putting weight on your feet? That's a question I had when a recent foot injury sidelined me from my usual workouts. Weighted squats, lunges, and glute bridges were off the table, so I was left looking for at-home butt workouts I could do on the mat, with no jumping or high-impact movements.
I don't work with a trainer, so my workouts are relegated to what I find online and on YouTube. Luckily, that was enough for what I needed here. These eight low-impact, mostly-on-the-mat YouTube glute workouts are appropriate for just about any fitness level, whether you're a beginner, you're recovering from injury, or you simply don't have the room or equipment for a more intense workout. Put your squats and jumps on hold for now, and get your glutes firing with these unique, creative YouTube butt workouts.
