Sounds like you would also benefit from squatting and lunges, as i think Kieron suggested above.

Keep us posted on progress :-)

I have one year to prepare for my biggest event EVER! Offa's Dyke 185miles 30,000ft of elevation. I'm gonna need to be strong, so it would be nice to get a strength exercise plan into place and then STICK TO IT!!

plenty of exercises to strengthened glutes. I use a resistance band just below the knees and do glute bridges and keep the resistance on the bands, you can get vary strengths of resistance bands.

Glute bridges? Hmm....might give those a try!

The resistance band is not below the knees in this video though:

Two different ways of using resistance bands whilst doing glute bridges then.

Do the glute bridges without bands to start.

I also use a lowish seat to sit down and then stand upright whilst engaging the glute muscles, to make it more challenging add weights or lower seat, if hips very tight then use a book or something similar to raise your heels. Make sure you mobilise and stretch hip flexors before doing squats.
