Section 1: About the Glute Loop
Why use the Glute Loop?
The Glute Loop is available in 2 sizes (S/M and L/XL) and 3 strengths (Regular, Strong and Extra Strong), allowing for 6 total options. If you're just looking to buy one single band, we recommend that the majority of users purchase the S/M Regular Glute Loop - this is the same size and strength as the Hip Thruster Loop. However, individuals with large thighs may wish to purchase the L/XL Regular Glute Loop instead. Stronger and fitter users will want to opt for the S/M and L/XL Strong and Extra Strong Glute Loops. However, instead of asking which band is right for you, consider buying all 6 loops. The reason why is that each band is useful for different exercises, variations, and rep ranges. For example, the L/XL Glute Loops are better suited for sumo squat and sumo band walks as they allow for larger excursions. And the Strong and Extra Strong Glute Loops are better suited for working lower rep ranges. We use them all at the Glute Lab.
The Glute Loop can be used during hip extension exercises such as squats, bridges, hip thrusts, leg presses, and reverse hypers to add a hip abduction component and place double duty on the glutes. It can be used in the standing, hip hinge, supine, seated, quadruped, and side lying positions to provide resistance for frontal or transverse plane hip abduction movements. It can also be used in the quadruped and standing positions to provide resistance during hip extension movements. There are over 30 different glute exercises that we perform while wearing the Glute Loop. It's a staple for any person who is serious about improving their gluteal strength, function, and development.
