I love the medicine ball in my own training and training my female athletes. It has a lot of exercises that you can do, it’s also great for training the glutes and posterior chain.
A few great things about training glutes with the med ball is that you wprk hard to stabilize on the ball. This fires up your glutes just to stabilize and balance on the med ball.
As well you can change your foot placement and knee placement to work from close to wide on the med ball.
Med Ball Glute Bridge A great exercise to@hit the glutes and hamstrings. Use a med ball for glute bridges. Go barefoot when possible. Change your feet position closer to wider every set. The further away the ball is from@your hips the more it becomes a hamstring exercise. Trying to stabilize on the ball will fire up your glutes. Give it a try. #Womenwholiftweights , #HeavyWeights, #gluteworkout , #glutes , #glutebridge
Hip Thrust on Medicine Ball with Resistance Band This is another great glute exercise using a med ball using the #the_hip_thruster. The band for increased resistance and trying to stabilize the med ball fires up the glutes big time :). @the_hip_thruster #glutes , #gluteworkout , #glutebridge , #Womenwholiftweights , #Heavyweights, #fitnessmodel , #gluteworkout
Throw in something like the hip thruster with a resistance band and you have even more options.
Give these med ball glute exercises a try.
