Resistance and mini-bands are a fantastic way of increasing glute muscle activation when performing lower limb exercises such as squats, split squats or lunges. They are very easy to use and improve your leg biomechanics instantly. Both of our recommended products come with instructions, so you can get the most from your workouts.
This set of 4 bands come in a pack of light, medium, heavy and extra heavy resistance levels. They can easily be wrapped around the knees and forefeet to increase the activation of the hip muscles during squatting (Click here for our favourite youtube mini-band tutorial). This creates perfect form and helps prevent lower back pain by keeping the pelvis in good alignment.
These can be used for many different exercises. Pull ups, chest press and deadlifts. However, they are really useful for increasing glute activation when lunging or stepping (they stop the knee from caving inwards, click here for a great lunging and stepping tutorial). We love this particular brand because they come with a video guide showing you how to use them. Also it’s important that you have a variety of resistance band levels, so you can progress your exercises as you get stronger.
