This strength training exercise focuses on working the quadriceps and glutes, as well as the hip and pelvic muscles. Use a resistance band to help you strengthen the gluteal muscles, while trimming fat around the hips and buttocks. Thanks to the continued resistance of the band, you are never allowed to rest while performing this exercise, which produces faster results.
