Target Muscle: Glutes

Glute Cable Kickback Overview

This strengthening exercise is a variation of glute kickbacks. It focuses on glutes as primary muscles and hamstrings as secondary. Beginners who are trying to build strength in their glutes and lower body as a whole would find this exercise super effective.

The exercise doesn’t just shape these groups of muscles but also tones them. Since your leg moves in a kicking motion behind your body in this exercise, you would experience an enhancement in balance and stability as well.

How to Do It

  1. Adjust the padding and set accurate weight on the machine.
  2. Raise your left leg and adjust the padding. 
  3. Stand up, hold the bar, and slightly bend the left knee to start. 
  4. Slowly push the left leg back and keep going as further as possible.
  5. Then reverse to the starting position and repeat with the right leg. 

Glute Cable Kickback Tips

  1. Make sure you are squeezing your glutes properly. For that, try to keep the pace of your exercise slow and controlled.
  2. When choosing a weight, pick one that doesn’t make your body jerk. Your body must be as still as possible.
  3. To increase the intensity level, pause for a few seconds and squeeze your glutes when your leg is fully extended.
