Glutes are the biggest muscle on our body. I know that someone is going to suggest leg press or the squat for working them, but I am seeking an exercise, primarily with weights, that hits your glute muscles. I would prefer if not to be the bridge because the position looks uncomfortable. Any exercises to bulk glutes?
From Bret Contreras (a.k.a. The Glute Guy):
Squatting, deadlifting, and lunging, can make the glutes sore but they don't strengthen the glutes much. They target the quads and erector spinae. Even box squatting, walking lunges, and sumo deadlifts don't activate much glute in comparison to the exercises below.
The barbell glute bridge is far-and-away superior to both of those for glute development. It's not that uncomfortable once you get it figured out.
