    If you want to target glutes for aesthetic reasons, then isolation movements can help. Hip thrusts and glute bridges, as others have suggested, and perhaps weighted hyperextensions as well.

    For strength purposes, I would suggest straight legged deadlifts as they will also incorporate your hamstrings, and again the hyperextensions.

    use a low bar back squat and go parallel or further.

    Good advice. IIRC, low bar squats activate the glutes more than high bar.

    Low squats. What is a low squat? Like touch your ankles or something.
    If you aren't feeling it in your glutes, you might possibly be doing "half squats" (AKA: Half-assed Squats).

    1. Standing
    2. Half-assed
    3. Full Squat
    4. Low Squat


    Here's a correct labeling system:

    1) Standing
    2) Quarter squat
    3) Half squat (aka the bro squat)
    4) Parallel (minimum for powerlifting legality)
    5?) ATG

    People usually don't answer my threads. Thread get hi-jack by trolls who have nothing better to do.

    Did some replies get deleted? Because I am missing the reason for the pile on.

    Full Squats will affect your glutes and low squats will REALLY affect them.

    Where I come from #3 is NOT a full squat
    I agree, but it's as close an image as I could get to explain the point.

    I already answered. If you would like a full, structured routine, I suggest buying and reading Strong Curves by Bret Contreras.

    Some people have. For the people who did not and tried to make fun of me. I feel sorry for you. Clearly there something going on in your life that make you feel inadequate and that you think I care about your negativity. I don't and I find it comical at the same time.
