How to Do Donkey Kickbacks or Glute Kickbacks
- Kneel on the ground on all fours (as seen in the picture above)
- Lift your leg up until it is at a 90-degree angle. If you are performing these weighted your calf will be bent in order to hold the weight but if you are doing these using only your bodyweight try to keep your calf perpendicular.
- Slowly lower your leg back to the starting position.
- You can either finish all prescribed repetitions on the same leg or alternate legs.
Really think about the muscle that you are working. Squeeze your glutes and stay in control of the movement the entire time.
