You can effectively work the butt with the outer thigh lift exercise. Whenever leg abduction (movement away from the midline of the body) takes place, the gluteus muscles are involved.

If you're an athlete, the outer thigh lift exercise is going to enhance lateral movement, potentially making you quicker when shuffling or running sideways.

Stretch resistance bands are a great way to add difficulty to the outer thigh lift. For this exercise, an O-loop stretch band is preferred. Listed below are instructions for performing the outer thigh lift with stretch bands:

Secure the stretch loop around your ankles. Lie sideways on an exercise mat. Place your arms in a comfortable position. Slowly lift your top leg at least 45 degrees or greater. Lower your leg to the starting position and repeat as needed. Perform the exercise on the opposite leg as well.
Step 1
Secure stretch loop around ankles. Lie down sideways.
Step 2
Slowly lift leg at least 45 degrees or greater.
Step 3
Return to starting point. Repeat the exercise.
