Gluteus Maximus Exercise: Cable Kick Backs

Another great move to target the gluteus maximus (buttocks) muscles is the cable kick back move. For this move you will need a cable machine, but if you do not have access to one, ankle weights will do the trick. This move works your gluteus maximus muscle, while putting a bit of pressure on your hamstring muscle to a lesser degree.

To perform this move:

  • Before you begin, set the cable machine on the lower pulley setting to the desired weight load and strap the ankle belt around your right ankle.
  • Stand at the cable machine, position both feet in front of the machine and rest your arms on the bar.
  • As you inhale, extend your right hip and pull your right leg backward without bending the knee so that you are pulling the cable weights with your right ankle.
  • Exhale and return your right leg to the starting position.
  • Perform 10-15 repetitions with your right leg before changing to your left leg.
  • Complete 3-4 sets of this exercise.
