No glute machines available? No problem.

This workout is designed to toning and defining leg and glute muscles. It is recommended to perform the exercise below two-three times weekly for optimal results.

Look no further than the leg extension machine to target the glutes. I recommend doing one high rep glute workout per week. This is a way to deplete glycogen storage and pump blood into the muscles which equal tone/growth.
