Light your glutes on fire with this glute-focused Pilates home workout that gives you a deep burn – in a good way. Your glutes are the biggest muscles in your body, so working them burns tons of calories – plus, a strong set of glutes can help you sit and stand more easily. Not to mention, toned glutes aren't a bad sight, either...

For this workout, all you need is a small Pilates ball; or any small ball that provides some resistance when squeezed and is safe to step on. A dedicated Pilates ball is your best option, though, as it will help you with your movements and provide some resistance as you move through multiple variations of squats and lunges.

Since this class is a Pilates flow, there is no written step-by-step workout guide to accompany this workout. Instead, play the below follow-along video and let Alo Moves Instructor Bianca Melas show you how to train those glutes like a pro!
