Not sure what equipment you have at your disposal, but I find one leg hack squats/one leg leg presses kill my glutes like nothing else.

Never sore in glutes after training? If so, a common mistake is excessive hinging with the low back instead of hip. Difficult to see sometimes, in the lower area (L5 S1)

Definitely sore after deads and squats but I seem to be a hip dominant squatter.... I have been tweaking my form as of late so, we will see it goes

Then I agree with others, glute bridge is an awesome exercise.

Barbell lunges, I've found.

I've heard that cable pullthroughs are good as well.

Yeah, like the others said, you can go all jane fonda at the gym and do one leg glute bridges (like me and then progress into bb glute bridges. lunges are also great.

I needed the improvement in hip hinge strength, and found that after doing glute bridges and lunges I've been feeling more glute activation in my deads and squats.
