You can sculpt those glutes in under 30 minutes with a busy schedule. These five glute exercises are designed for all fitness levels and are perfect for busy women on the go. Therefore, to all of my busy queens, here are five “Busy Girl Glute Exercises” that are quick yet effective to add to your day-to-day.

Best Busy Girl Glute Exercises

These exercises can be adapted to your fitness level, whether you’re a beginner or more experienced. Start with a weight or resistance level that challenges you but allows you to complete the recommended reps with proper form. As you progress, gradually increase the intensity or weight to keep challenging your glutes.

Maintaining proper form during each exercise prevents injury and maximizes results. Pay attention to your breathing, engage your core, and focus on squeezing your glutes during the entire range of motion. Always consult a fitness professional or physician for any concerns or medical conditions.

The third exercise in the “Busy Girl Glute Exercises” is lunges. Glute bridges are an effective exercise that isolates and engages the glutes. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips towards the ceiling, keeping your core engaged and squeezing your glutes at the top. Lower your hips back down and repeat. Do three sets of 15-20 reps.

Donkey Kicks

Fire hydrants are another effective exercise that targets the glutes and helps improve hip mobility. Begin on all fours and lift one knee to the side, keeping your knee bent at a 90-degree angle. Squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement and then return your knee to the starting position. Do three sets of 12-15 reps for each leg.
