How to firm your glutes at home!

When we are talking about being in perfect physical shape, an area of the body that everyone certainly wants to sculpt is the gluteus.

What are the most effective movements for achieving harmony in this area? How are they performed?

Let's talk about squats

Squats are the best exercise for toning and strengthening the muscles in your lower limbs.
It's a very simple movement, and if done correctly it lets you work intensely on all the muscles in your legs, your glutes, your abs, and even your psoas muscle.

Simply stand with your hands at your sides, your feet shoulder width apart, and your toes turned slightly out. Next, bend your legs, contracting your abs and psoas muscles to keep your back straight. Then return to the starting position and repeat the exercise according to your level of preparation and requirements.

Why not on Kinesis® Personal?
Calisthenic exercises that are very helpful for our purposes become even more effective when using Kinesis® Personal.


Half squat

  • Separate your legs so your feet are hip width apart and your toes turn slightly out.
  • With your torso slightly inclined, your arms extended along your sides, and the cables under tension, bend your legs to a 120° angle at the knee.
  • Control how fast you move, so that you move more slowly on the way back up than you do going down.
  • Do not arch your back during this exercise.
