HOW TO: Cable Glute Kickbacks

These are a great accessory exercise for building the glutes IF performed correctly. If not, the only thing they’re great for is giving your lower back a solid beating.

DON’T:
Over arch your lower back.
Swing your leg and use momentum.
Tilt your hips to the side.
Throw your head back.

DO:
Control the movement.
Maintain a neutral spine.
Tuck your hips under slightly and keep them square to the bench.
Drive through your heel and squeeze your glute hard.
Turn your toe out and kick slightly to the side to increase glute engagement.

As you won’t be able to move very high loads with this one, shoot for moderate to high reps. I personally like the 15-25 range for a solid booty pump.
