Single-leg cable hip extension

The single-leg cable hip extension is an isolation exercise that targets the glutes, specifically the gluteus maximus. It is a common burnout movement on a lower-body focused day and is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more.


  1. Adds size and strength to the gluteus maximus
  2. Great for hypertrophy or burnout with lighter weight and high reps
  3. The cable keeps constant tension on the muscles
