Most people know this: working out specific muscles in your body without the help of a machine is easier said than done. That is another way of saying that workout machines are very important, especially when you want to work your glutes and get that perfect booty.
Here’s a great tip: if
want to strengthen your booty, then you should try 6 to 8 reps, but to
lift it higher, then go for 12 to 20 reps.
And with that, let’s get down to it. Here are the best 11 butt machines.
1. Smith Machine
Good for newbies, Smith Machine does more than help you get a great booty. For instance, you can do anything from compound glute workouts, stiff-legged and regular deadlifts, reverse donkey kicks, and even barbell lunges.
For great glutes, your goal is to do great reverse donkey kicks. Be gentle as you do it. You should feel your glutes contract during the workout. With regular workouts of between 12 and 20 reps, you will see your booty pop.
2. The Stair Stepper
You are probably
wondering what a cardio machine is doing on this list. However, doing
step-ups on a high-grade cardio machine such as this can really improve
Mix your glute workouts with regular cardio. About 20 minutes of fairly intense workouts 4 times a week should give you fantastic results.
3. Thigh Abductor
Besides having a truly unique and memorable name, this machine is among the best options you have if you want a great butt. The Thigh Abductor will work your glutes and abductors.
After getting into position, press the machine with your legs as you separate your legs. Once the contraction sets in, close the legs to get back to where you started.
About 12 to 20 such movements should give you an amazing glutes workout.
4. Leg Extension Machine For Glute Thrusts
You might not know this, but a leg extension machine can help you exercise your glutes quite well. You should pull the lever upwards until the pad rests on you.
From there, push your body forward in a thrust as contract and squeeze your butt before going down slowly. Do about 12 to 20 reps and see your glutes improve.
5. Lying Leg Curl Machine
If you are a woman who likes to keep fit, this machine will be one of your best friends.
After you assume the right position on the machine, raise your calves upwards to the very top. Then, bring them down again slowly. While at it, keep your toes pointing upwards. Try to do at least 12 to 15 reps.
You can also try the reverse donkey kick with this machine.
6. Standing Reverse Leg Curl
This is a great machine for your hamstrings and glutes. The machine might focus on the hamstrings, but that’s good because their contraction gives the glutes a workout.
You should lock your ankle into the pad before you push upward. You should feel a squeeze on your glutes as you go up.
7. Hack Squat Machine
As the name suggests, this machine will help you do squats, but not the full version. Despite this simple workout, you will give your glutes some exercise, and your quads and hamstrings as well.
The workouts should be nice and slow, and your legs should be fairly wide apart to give your glutes more of a challenge. About 12 to 15 reps should get the job done.
8. Leg Press
Many people don’t think of this simplistic machine as a great way to work their glutes, but it has plenty to offer. The trick is ensuring that you position your feet properly as you do the leg presses.
To give your glutes a workout, you should use a wider stance. Also, place your feet higher on the machine. Do about 12 to 20 reps for a great glutes workout.
9. Squat Leg Press Machine
This great machine is a lot like the leg press. But the platform is larger, and it will give you a greater motion range. More importantly, it will give your glutes more attention during the workout as it results in wider contractions.
All that’s needed is a wider stance. You can also work on one leg at a time. Furthermore, the machine will go easier on your knees.
10. Glute Ham Raise
In addition to your glutes, this machine will be great for the hamstrings and calves. To use the machine, lie facing down and place your feet against the footplate between the rollers.
From there, lift your body as you flex your knees. Be sure to keep your body straight during the workout.
11. Hip Extension Machine
With this machine, you
can do the reverse donkey kick. But there is a slight twist-you do so in
an upright motion while the pad rests on your hamstrings.
As you do the workout, be gentle and deliberate. Try to aim for between 12 and 15 reps in order to get that perfect booty.
