Exercise To Develop The Gluteal (Butt) And Hamstring Muscles
What are the best exercises to focus on the hamstring-gluteal tie in for women?
Thanks for the great question Sheri.
There are some great hamstring/glute exercises that specifically target this area. The best exercises?
I find a combination of exercises work best at developing the gluteal and hamstring muscles.
Personally, you can't go wrong with a squat of some sort.
Another great glute/hamstring builder is the lying butt bridge. This exercise directly targets the butt and is a great contraction exercise. It's a little different but it will work to do this exercise, simply lie on the floor and bend you knees like you would if you were to do a crunch or a sit up.
You may also want to include a stiff leg dead lift of lying leg curl in this equation. Both are great hamstring builders, but if I had my choice, I'd go with the stiff leg dead lift because it targets both, the hamstrings and gluteal muscles.
Standing leg kick backs are also a great exercise for the gluteal and hamstring muscles. To do this exercise, simply stand, facing a wall. Put your hands on the wall for support and simply lift your left or right leg backwards and upwards.

All the best,
