Glute Exercises With Kettlebells
Kettlebells are a great functional tool to help you build your booty. There are many exercises that you can do with these and you can do them from pretty much anywhere; at home, at the gym, at your local park. Simply bring your kettlebell along to build the booty you’ve been wanting.

Kettlebell squats are great because the weight in the kettlebell is off-centre, making them functional in nature and harder to complete.
To complete a kettlebell squat, hold the kettlebell with both hands at the handle in front of your chest. Keep your arms up and the kettlebell centre and set your slightly wider than shoulder width apart before bending at the knees into a 45-degree squat. Once there, push evenly through your feet to drive yourself up using your glutes, back into a standing position. Repeat.
A functional kettlebell swing is a useful exercise to tone your glutes as you engage them to drive the kettlebell upwards. Be careful not to bend your knees too much throughout this one; it’s a swing, not a squat.
Hold your desired kettlebell between your legs, holding at the handle with both hands. Standing straight, bend your hips back until the kettlebell is between and behind your legs, then squeee your glute to extend your hips; swinging the weight forward. Repeat.
Single leg kettlebell deadlift
Kettlebell deadlifts are a full body movement that primarily work your glutes and your legs. There are many forms of kettlebell deadlifts, and each one of these strengthen your posterior chain.
To complete, hold a kettlebell in one hand in front of the leg on the same side of your body. Keeping your opposite foot firmly on the ground, lift your kettlebell leg slowly. Keep your knee slightly bent and bend at your hips. Extend your kettlebell leg behind you for balance. Continue lowering your kettlebell until you are parallel to the ground. Return to your upright position, then repeat.
Holding your kettlebell in a front rack position in front of the body, complete lunges by driving your opposite leg forward or backward. Remember to keep your toes pointed forward and swap the arm of your kettlebell (and opposite leg) once you have completed your first set.
