Who doesn’t want a big booty? Whether you want it for purely aesthetic purposes or for added overall lower body strength (or both!), you will never run out of options to get the glutes that you want. There is no shortage of the glute machines for your lower body in the market; the actual problem is how to choose the equipment that can work for your mission.
But before you go ahead and hand over your hard-earned cash, you have to think carefully about your planned purchase. Spending for a dumbbell or two, or a set or resistance bands is one thing – paying hundreds of thousands of dollars on a machine that will take up considerable space in your home is another.
Here’s what you need to know when buying a glute machine!
Factors to Consider When Shopping for a Glute Machine
The saying “You get what you pay for” may be true in a lot of situations, but not necessarily in buying fitness equipment. Just because a particular equipment doesn’t have a price tag that makes you wince doesn’t automatically mean it is not worth your purchase.
Affordable and cheap need not be synonymous. If budget is an issue, there are plenty of mid-range options with great quality that you can choose from.
The allure of an expensive, branded product is totally understandable, especially with the way those are marketed. There are stores that get to sell a product by the virtue of its brand name.
Still, while there are branded equipment that ARE worth the buy, there are non-branded equipment that are built for the same purpose, using the same materials, that are worth looking into.
A lot of these machines or equipment are being sold as multi-tasking products that will make the most out of your money, but come up short on their promises. Or there are products designed to target a specific body part, but turns out you can do the same exercise with multi-tasking equipment.
You have to choose carefully, keeping in mind the exercises that you plan to need to do for your program. Remember that there is equipment you can use not only for your glutes, but for other muscle groups as well.
If you’re living in a small studio, buying a big machine is most likely not the practical option for you, especially if you’re living with family. If you only have limited space, it’s best to limit your choices to equipment that you can easily store in your closet when not in use.
Even the most expensive piece of equipment can’t guarantee you a glorious booty if you’re not using it properly. There are a whole lot of other factors in play, such as the way you use that machine…if you get to use it religiously at all.
Also, exercise comes hand-in-hand with good nutrition when it comes to getting the body you desire. If you don’t eat right, no equipment or machine in the world can help you get your fitness on.
When it comes to exercise, there are two types of resistance you will be dealing with – gravity and elastic. There are equipment that use both and there are those designed to deal with just one kind.
Weights use gravity resistance, while rubber bands and metal springs use elastic resistance. Decide what type you want to use and then choose the right equipment.
Portability is not only a concern for the amount of physical space you have at home. You also have to consider this if you’re constantly travelling and you want to work out when you’re out and about. If this is the case, you are better off buying a set of resistance bands or a set of dumbbells that you can easily take with you wherever you go.
8. Fitness Level
If you’re a fitness newbie and you’re still getting a feel of regular workouts, it’s not wise to invest in expensive machines right away. There are so many people who have done so and ended up losing interest with exercise eventually, leaving the machine to gather dust in the basement. Talk about occupying space and thousands of dollars wasted.
It’s best to get the most affordable equipment first and if you feel like you can keep this up, then maybe you can switch up to more advanced and more expensive equipment.
Best Glute-Building Equipment for Home Use
With that being said, here are two options worth checking out if you have serious intentions of building up your booty. We have a resistance band set for those looking for portability and a machine for those with space and budget to buy it.
1. INNSTAR Booty Resistance Band Glute Cord System
This cord system is so easy to use! All you need to do is anchor it to the door (hooks are provided for this purpose), then trap the other bands around each of your ankles and you’re ready to go. It’s definitely worth your money since it can be used for more than just the usual leg extensions and kickbacks.
Another great thing about it is that you can use it to target other muscle groups. Just anchor the cord to the top of the door frame instead of the bottom and then use it to work out your arms, shoulders, and back.
If you’re clueless about how to use resistance bands, no need to worry. This set comes with a guide that can show you the correct techniques and the right exercises for specific muscle groups.
2. Body-Solid GLPH1100 Leg Press and Hack Squat Machine
This looks like an imposing piece of equipment but this is perfect for those who work out on the mid-level to advanced levels. This is made for heavy lifting – it can support up to 1000 pounds. You can do leg press workouts and back squats, with all the weights that you need.
The only “problem,” if you can call it that, with this machine is that you have to spend around two hours to assemble this beast. But you can always count this as part of your workout and besides, no pain, no gain.
