I believe that “money exercises” include squats, deadlifts, hip thrusts, bench press, weighted chins, weighted push ups, incline press, military press, chest supported rows, and weighted dips. Please note that I include hip thrusts in the mix.
That said, there are many good exercises out there that aren’t very popular. Here are a few glute exercises that I feel people should incorporate into their programming:
