Glute Workouts Videos and Tips

Glute Workout Routines to Sculpt a Better Butt

Do you ever wish you had buns of steel or at least a pleasantly plump derriere? Whether you're an aspiring IFBB bikini amateur or you long to look perfect in your yoga pants, you're probably seeking out glute workouts to tone your tush. We've turned to IFBB Bikini and Fitness Pros so you can see how they tone and shape their glutes as they prepare for competition. How do they get those rad rumps? Take a look at these three glute workout videos to discover some great techniques and get inspired. Don't forget to check out the Glute Workouts Pinterest board as well.

Glute Training with a IFBB Fitness Pro Lindsey Waters

IFBB Fitness Pro, Lindsey Waters, demonstrates a few glute exercises to get your butt ready for the stage, the beach or anywhere life takes you. Check out how she trains at the East Coast Mecca: Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym. Lindsey also shares some insight as to why she finds some of the glute exercises she selects so beneficial. She also shares some of her favorite "Butt Sculpting" training techniques. Plus, you'll even find out what she does to bar boredom at the gym.

Training Glutes with IFBB Pro Sarah LeBlanc

Last year with only six weeks to go until the 2014 Olympia competition, IFBB Pro Sarah LeBlanc shared some of her rigorous glute/hamstring training. In this video she gives a glimpse at the type of glute muscle targeting exercises she does for round, full glutes that all bikini girls want to have.

IFBB Bikini Pro Glutes and Legs Workout

Tone your butt/glutes and legs like IFBB Bikini Pro Yarishna Ayala. In this video, you can see some of the exercises Yarishna does to tone her glutes and legs. She definitely mixes up her glutes and legs workout routines with a variety of different methods. Sometimes she uses nautilus equipment, for other exercises she uses free weights, on occasion dumbbells are in the mix, and there are also times when she just uses her body-weight for glutes and legs exercises. We're pretty sure we even saw some leg weights as well as a step and medicine ball in there. Take a look for yourself. Which of these exercises will you add to your glute workout routines?

Get More Glute Workouts on's Pinterest Board

We've put together an array of even more bootylicious exercises and other glute-related photos and videos on our Glutes Workout Pinterest board.

Bodyweight Training Videos & Tips

Building a Buff Body with Bodyweight Training

Bodyweight training is oftentimes overlooked and underrated. What's amazing is the body transforming results that bodyweight exercises can help you achieve. It's not like your body can distinguish between a barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell or your own bodyweight. All it really knows is how hard it needs to work to move the resistance. For example, if you're bench pressing, you use your pectorals, deltoids and triceps, but don't really work any other muscle groups, unless you make a conscious effort to do so. By performing bodyweight exercises, like one-arm push-ups, you're not only working your pecs, delts and triceps, but you're also incidentally working your lats, abs, glutes, quads and hamstrings. Another great thing about bodyweight training is that you can workout anytime wherever you are. You don't need any extra equipment and you don't even have to go to the gym.

We found a few videos that show numerous bodyweight exercises, including five of Coach Kozak's favorites, 44 of the best bodyweight exercises from Tee Major Fitness and a 30-minute bodyweight boot camp. Plus, we've added a special Pinterest board filled with bodyweight training tips, exercises and workouts.

New Year’s Fitness and Workout Resolutions: 10 Tips for Setting and Achieving Your Goals

Get on Track to a Healthy New You in 2015 With’s Top 10 Tips for New Year’s Fitness Resolutions

While many regard December as a period of indulgence, year-end also marks the starting point for New Year’s resolutions. It’s a time to take stock of your personal goals, assess your progress and analyze prior pitfalls as you plan for the year ahead. If you’ve fulfilled your 2014 resolutions, how can you take them to the next level in 2015? If you’ve fallen short, what caused you to falter, and how can you achieve success in the coming year?

To help you get your New Year’s fitness resolutions off to promising start, we’ve solicited ideas from the team and our sponsored athletes. Following are the top 10 tips from our resident fitness experts and IFBB pros:

1. Set SMART goals. In the business world, “SMART” stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound. But SMART objectives apply equally well to fitness goals. Rather than making vague resolutions like “lose weight,” “bulk up” or “get fit,” take the time to identify and define exactly what you’re hoping to achieve. Then write down those objectives to hold yourself accountable, and set a series of incremental milestones throughout the year.

2. Do a reality check. When making New Year’s resolutions, it’s important to ensure your goals are realistic. People who set unreasonably high expectations for themselves – such as severe caloric restrictions or prolonged, intense daily workouts – may be more likely to give up if they backslide. By lowering the bar a bit at the outset and aiming for progressively higher goals over time, you can position yourself for success. Check out the video below and click here to watch a female personal trainer talking more about weight/endurance goals.

3. Choose your workout wisely. It’s not enough to make “get to the gym” your New Year’s resolution; you need to have a plan of action once you get there. A bodybuilder looking to increase upper body strength will follow a very different exercise program than a runner seeking to improve endurance or an overweight person aiming to reduce belly fat. If you’re a new gym member, request an equipment demonstration so you’ll know which exercises to incorporate into your routine. If you’re a gym regular interested in taking your workout to the next level, schedule a session or two with a personal trainer for professional advice on how to achieve your fitness goals.

4. Tap into tips from bodybuilding and fitness pros. While personal trainers are a great resource for gym-goers, individuals who prefer a do-it-yourself approach will find a wealth of information just a click away. Many trainers and pro bodybuilders share their expert advice via blogs, YouTube videos, podcasts and other social media channels. Look up athletes whose physique you admire, and see what they share online. For example, IFBB pro Tricky Jackson airs a weekly Pro Muscle Radio broadcast that’s popular among bodybuilders. And be sure to check the blog regularly for curated posts featuring videos, tips and advice from some of the country’s top bodybuilders, athletes and trainers. Check out the Tricky Jackson video below.

5. Change the scene. While some people perform best by following a regular routine, others get bored quickly and are more apt to give up their resolutions when they lose interest. If daily visits to the same gym seem like a tedious prospect, try varying your routine. Alternate gym days with home workouts or team sports; or visit a local park with fitness stations in lieu of exercising indoors.

6. Raise your nutrition IQ. Many people equate the word “diet” with counting calories or restricting carb or fat intake; but the reality is that proper diet and nutrition are as much about consuming the right foods, vitamins and minerals as avoiding the wrong ones. Consider making an appointment with a nutritionist or checking out a few books to learn how specific foods and dietary supplements can help you achieve your fitness goals, from building muscle or burning fat to increasing stamina or minimizing recovery time. And explore the blog to discover the functions, benefits and evidence behind some of the key ingredients in popular health and bodybuilding supplements.

7. Track your progress. Hopping on the scale each morning or measuring your biceps every evening can create disappointment, as you’ll rarely see immediate results. It’s better to track your progress over time, with a weigh-in or measurement every week or on alternating weeks. Since fitness and bodybuilding goals tend to involve a gradual progression, you’re not likely to notice changes in yourself from day to day. But if you take weekly or semi-weekly photos of yourself, the results will be clearly visible as you work toward your goals.

8. Find your motivation. Whether it’s a mantra or a mentor, find what (or who) inspires you and keep that front and center as you focus on fitness resolutions. Motivating messages and visual cues can have a powerful impact. Follow Twitter or Facebook pages that post inspirational quotes and practical advice, or create a Pinterest board with aspirational images that propel you to strive harder. To see what inspires us, click over to the Pinterest boards.

Tips and Motivation From the Pros.

9. Register for an event. Even if you’re a long way from achieving your fitness goals, committing to a specific event will give you something tangible to work toward. If your objective is to run the Boston Marathon, sign up for a local half marathon a few months out. If you dream of competing in pro bodybuilding championships, register for some regional novice-level contests as you work your way toward a pro card.

10. Never give up! When all is said and done, succeeding at your New Year’s fitness resolutions doesn’t mean having a perfect track record every single day of the entire year. It’s only human to have an occasional lapse or to get sidetracked when work or personal obligations take precedence; the key is to look at these events as momentary hurdles rather than insurmountable obstacles. Remember that success is an ongoing journey, and you’re in it for the long haul!

Bodybuilding and Fitness Inspiration.

By following these 10 tips, you’ll be on your way to successfully achieving your New Year’s fitness resolutions.

Holiday Workouts and Tips

Holiday Workouts and Tips

“Holiday workout” may seem like an oxymoron during this time of year when Halloween treats are still lurking around your house, you’re ready to gobble up some Thanksgiving turkey, and holiday parties and celebrations are right around the corner. If you don’t want to have a jiggly belly like jolly ol’ St. Nick, then we’ve got some holiday workout routines and tips to get you through. We’ve gathered together some rockin’ exercises and helpful hints for keeping your fitness goals on track throughout the holiday season. Plus, we’ve created a Pinterest board focusing on today's topic: Holiday Workouts and Tips.

The Secret to Sticking to Your Diet During the Holidays

How can you keep working toward your fitness goals throughout the holidays? Daniel and Kelly from Fitness Blender answer this question in a way that may surprise you. One of the major keys is to enjoy yourself, and stay away from the worry and guilt. The reality is that if you stick to your usual routine except for the few holidays, you should be fine to indulge on those days. It’s okay to splurge a little here and there, if you keep working out and eating clean the rest of the time. The real secret is to stay away from all of the treats coming into the workplace. If you do have some indulgences, don’t skip meals to try to counteract it. This won’t help at all in the long run. There’s a fun blooper section at the end of this video as well.

Helpful Holiday Hints and a Workout Too

Holiday parties and celebrations can wreak havoc on your healthful eating and workout habits. All of the sweet treats and indulgences that come with these events can be difficult to turn down, and being short on time can sabotage your workouts. Health and fitness consultant, Alycia Kluegl, provides some helpful holiday party tips and also shares a great workout. A few of her top tips are.

Don't got the party hungry. Limit alcoholic drinks. Socialize away from the food and bar.

Plus, the Power Three full-body workout she recommends, includes:

Jump Squats Push ups with Hip Extension Half Sit Ups

Pump up Your Holiday Workout

Vertical from Barstarzz leads us in a high intensity workout that's ideal for burning fat and building muscle. You can ban the bulge with this fast-paced workout that features:

Bodybuilder vs. Weightlifter vs. Powerlifter

Bodybuilder vs. Weightlifter vs. Powerlifter

When thinking about the different type of lifters and training – bodybuilders, weightlifters and powerlifters – we think it's much like a battle of the buffest. Each type of lifting program improves strength and size in its own way.

Which one is right for you? That's something you'll need to decide. Who knows, you may like to do some training from each of these areas to get the results you desire. Check out these videos to get a better idea of some of the different techniques and build each of these athletes have. We've also created a Bodybuilder vs. Weightlifter vs. Powerlifter Pinterest board

Which Type of Lifter Squats Longest?

As we mention above, there are differences between bodybuilders, weightlifters and powerlifters. Berlin Strength in Germany thought it would be fun to find out which type of lifter would last the longest in a squat session. Keep in mind, they are speaking German, but the subtitles are in English, when you press the Closed Captioning (CC) button. Let’s see who the winner is in this friendly squat session competition: one of the two powerlifters, the weight lifter or the bodybuilder. Who do you think it will be.

When Bodybuilders Meet Powerlifters

Join us with the crew from Berlin Strength Gym in Germany as bodybuilders train with powerlifters. The Bodybuilder Meets Powerlifter video below shows bodybuilders Harry Irorutola and Felix Valentino do a basic power lifting workout with powerlifters Thomas Faber and Romano Rengal. As bodybuilders, Harry and Felix workout to make their bodies look awesome, while powerlifting is more about extreme strength and power. In this video, they focus on powerlifting basics, including squats, deadlifts and benchpresses. Thomas and Romano also share several tips on proper powerlifting technique. Much like the video above, this one is spoken in German, but the subtitles are in English when you click on the CC button.

Deadlift Battle with a Bodybuilder, a Strongman and a Powerlifter

See how the deadlift is done with this friendly backyard battle between a bodybuilder, a powerlifter and a strongman. You'll see slightly different techniques as each competitor basically does the deadlift as they do in their training. Who will come out as the deadlift champion?
