Donkey kick workouts for glute strength  

Basic Donkey Kick Position: Start on all fours in a tabletop position. Ensure your knees are under your hips and your wrists under your shoulders. Execution: Keeping your knee bent at 90 degrees, lift one leg and push your foot towards the ceiling until your thigh is parallel with your back. Hold for a moment, then return to the starting position.

Donkey Kick Pulse Position: Begin in the same tabletop position. Execution: Lift one leg towards the ceiling as in the basic donkey kick, then pulse the leg by moving it up and down slightly for several counts. Repetitions: Perform 20 pulses, then switch legs.

Donkey Kicks with Resistance Band Equipment: Loop a resistance band around your thighs, just above your knees. Position: Start on all fours. Execution: Perform a donkey kick while pushing against the resistance of the band. Repetitions: Complete 15 reps on each side.

Weighted Donkey Kick Equipment: Place a small dumbbell in the crease of your knee, or use ankle weights. Position: Get on all fours. Execution: Execute the donkey kick, ensuring the weight stays secure. Repetitions: Do 12-15 reps per side.

Single-Leg Donkey Kick Position: Start in a plank position with your legs extended behind you. Execution: Lift one leg off the ground and drive the heel towards the ceiling while keeping the leg straight. Lower it back without touching the floor. Repetitions: Perform 10-15 kicks on each side.

Bent-Leg Pulse Position: Begin in a tabletop position. Execution: Lift one leg with the knee bent and foot flat, pulse upwards by contracting your glutes. Repetitions: Do 20-30 pulses, then switch legs.

Donkey Kick with Fire Hydrant Position: Start on all fours. Execution: Lift one leg into a donkey kick, bring it down and then lift the leg to the side keeping the knee bent (like a dog at a fire hydrant). Repetitions: Alternate between the kick and the hydrant for 10 reps total per side.

Tips for Maximizing Effectiveness: Maintain Proper Form: Keep your back flat and your gaze down to avoid neck strain. Engage Your Core: This will help stabilize your body and provide better results. Controlled Movements: Perform each move slowly and with control to maximize muscle engagement.
