There are plenty of resistance bands on the market, you can usually pick them up from your local sports store. This way you might even be able to test one out as well. Keep your movements slow and controlled for optimum glute activation. If you’re finding a whole 15 reps too difficult to hold correct form, do as little as 6 perfectly and move onto the next side. You’re better to have a little rest than to move on with poor form.
