Training

Building Glutes

When she entered the gym for the first time, Elba didn’t know how to correctly train with weights. It took her years of experimentation before she gained the necessary knowledge and experience to sculpt an awesome physique.

Nowadays, Elba shares what she’s learned from years of training with her fans on social media. Here are her top 3 training advice for building glutes;

1. Slow and Steady Movements

Elba points out that building toned glutes takes a lot of slow and steady work. According to her, rushing through an exercise not only yields poor results, it also increases the chance of an injury.

No matter which exercises she does, Elba makes sure to keep her glutes under constant tension. Although this takes a little longer than doing quick repetitions, it’s much more effective for toning her glutes.

2. Push Through Heels

Elba says, if her body isn’t balanced the way it should be, she won’t train her glutes effectively. By putting her weight on her heels, Elba takes the stress off her quads, and transfers it onto her glutes.

For example, when doing smith machine squats, Elba makes sure to push through her heels the entire time. By doing so, she puts maximum stress on her glutes without involving other muscles.

3. Varying Foot Stance

Like any other muscle, Elba’s glutes benefit the most when she works them from multiple angles. Instead of keeping her feet pointed straight, she’ll sometimes move them into a slightly different position.

By changing the angle of her feet, she’s able to put emphasis on different parts of her glutes.

Elba says, although this might seem like a small change, it actually provides major benefits for her glutes.
