Since my journey to getting my muscles back, my butt has always been one of my main concerns. Lets face it, I am not blessed with natural curves, aka no boobs or butt, however with hard work, the right diet, and the right workouts I know I can grow my butt. One thing I wanted to do different this time around was really focus on my butt muscles and concentrate on those muscles instead of just doing “leg” day. I tend to grow my quads faster than any other muscle in my body, and what I didn’t want was overly exaggerated quads. So with tons of research I found these four workouts to be some of the most effective workouts to exercise your booty on the cable machine. If you watched my previous video 4 Exercises Using The Lat Pull Down Machine, you know I am a big fan of cable exercises. Cable exercises are a great way to workout to target specific muscles and offer a full range of motions. These 4 Cable Exercises to Shape Your Booty are four exercise you will want to incorporate in your routine. Watch the video and read the description below!
4 Cable Exercises to Shape Your Booty
Stand facing the weight stack and grasp the cable tower for support. With your knees slightly bent and your abs drawn in, slowly kick your right leg back until your hip is fully extend back with your glutes contracted. Pause for 1-2 seconds, then slowly bring your right leg back to the starting position and repeat.
Start standing a few feet in front of a low pulley with a rope or handle attached. Face away from the machine, straddling the cable, with your feet set wide apart. Begin the movement by reaching through your legs as far as possible, bending at the hips. Keep your knees slightly bent. Keeping your arms straight, extend through the hip to stand straight up. Avoid pulling upward through the shoulders; all of the motion should originate through the hips.
Stand in front of a low-pulley station in an elevated position using a step bench with a straight bar attached. Hold the bar with an overhand grip and take a step back so that there is some tension in the cable. Bend your knees to squat until your thighs are about parallel to the ground. Slowly stand and repeat.
Move the cable to a low-pulley station. Secure it around your left foot and turn away from the stack. Extend your left knee to the side to straighten your leg; reverse the motion to return to the start, then repeat. After doing all the reps on one side, switch legs to complete a set.
