We all know that #BuildingMuscle happens with #HeavyLifting and adequate #protein intake. #BootyBands aren’t going to take those glutes from 0-100 on their own. BUT! They are a great warm-up/additional tool to incorporate during your #workouts.
Like we said, any of those instagram models who claim their glute growth came from booty bands alone is full of B.S. (sorry not sorry). What they do do is add extra resistance to get that booty working a little harder than it would be if you were only using body weight.
Booty/Resistance bands help activate your glutes, specifically those smaller muscles that don’t get a lot of love when doing less concentrated movements such as squats and lunges. By warming up with a band, you’ll get these muscles working and be able to better target them when going heavy during your actual work out. Embrace that burn!
Bands come in a variety of sizes and resistances: depending on your goals, you can go lighter for warm-up purposes, or opt for heavier ones (place these above your knees during squats and hip thrusts to add even more resistance. Knees out!).
Booty bands are great for warm-ups, and an effective addition to lifting heavy weight. The bands themselves aren’t magic, but the effort you put in while using them will lead to booty-ful results.
