I find the money between the arse cheeks while bridging to be a really good cue for people like the OP who need to learn to activate the glutes.

Sumo squats. Love 'em. Even if you can't do weighted sumo squats yet, body weight is a fine start. Just squeeze your glutes really tight together at the top.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

thanks for sharing the video! I am going to do videos once it gets too cold for me to exercise outside.

This video is very gentle on the knees. It works mainly hips, but the reversed bicycle move, as well as the crab is really working the gluteal muscles.

Gripping a $1 bill works too, but the image of the $100 bill may make you hold on better. LOL

start by doing bridges where you're squeezing your "booty" like you have a $100 bill between the cheeks.

I have recently started booty training. I can't do have the reps because I lack teh strength and still need to keep my form.

any ideas on how to actually FEEL it in my booty? because I feel it more in my inner thighs, groin and hamstrings.
