Raised-Leg Curls

Raised Leg Curls are an excellent way to work your glutes.

Implementation:  Get down on all fours on the floor wearing an ankle weight on your left foot. Raise your left leg to about butt level and extend it straight, away from your body and roughly parallel to the floor. Curl your heel toward your butt until your lower leg is perpendicular to the floor. Keep your thigh parallel to the ground. Your thigh shouldn't move much-all the movement is done below the knee. Don't sway your body or arch your back, and concentrate on the contraction in your butt. Do one to three sets of 8 to 12 reps for each leg. If this exercise gets too easy, you can progress to using a leg curl machine or the Ro- manian dead lift.
