Here’s the email that you’ve been waiting for – everything you need to know to shape up your booty in time for swimsuit season.
Here are the 6 Best Exercises for Your Booty:
BEST Booty Exercise #1: HINGE LUNGE
An amazing exercise that targets the muscles of your butt, thighs, and hips is the lunge. Reaching one foot out behind the other, stick your bum out as you lower your body toward the ground, keeping your abdominals tight and allowing your torso to move to 45 degrees. Lower until the front knee is bent at closer to 90 degrees and not extended past your toes. Stand back up and then extend the opposite leg and bend. Perform 10 repetitions. For an increased workout, hold dumbbells in each hand.
BEST Booty Exercise #2: HIP LIFT (AKA BACK BRIDGE)
A great exercise to work your glute muscles is the hip lift. To do this exercise, lie on the floor with your back flat, knees bent, and feet resting on the ground. While keeping your arms at your sides on the floor, lift your bottom and lower back off of the floor. Hold for a few seconds, and then slowly lower yourself. Repeat. It’s key to keep your heels in line with your foot or you’ll get the hamstrings working instead of the bum. To work your muscles even more, lift a leg in the air when you raise your bottom off the ground. Lower yourself and then repeat, lifting the other leg.
BEST Booty Exercise #3: BANDED SHUFFLE
This is a great exercise to get your heart pumping and work your buns. To do this exercise, you’ll need an elastic sports band. Stand up straight with your legs hip-width apart and tie the band around your lower legs. Squat down until your thighs are close to parallel to the floor, your back is straight but leaned forward somewhat, and your abdominals are tight. While in this squatting position, take several steps to the left, then several to the right. You may need to use your arms for balance, but your butt muscles should feel a workout.
BEST Booty Exercise #4: LEG LIFT
To do a leg lift, lie on your side and prop yourself up on your elbow, or just lie down. Bend your top leg and raise it slowly into the air and forward, as far forward as you can. Hold for a few seconds, and then slowly lower your leg. Repeat 10 times, turn onto the other side, and lift the other leg.
BEST Booty Exercise #5: RUN OR WALK
Running or walking outside or on the treadmill are other great exercises that work your butt while giving you a cardio workout to burn fat at the same time. Make it your goal to exercise 2–30 minutes at least three times a week, including walking or running each time.
it’s best to do higher intensity or intervals to get those calories burning fast!
BEST Booty Exercise #6: SQUAT
Another form of squat is the squat. This is the exercise to add definition and shape to your butt. Start by standing with your legs slightly more than shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed slightly out to the sides. For balance, hold your arms in front of you. While keeping your back straight, slowly squat to the ground until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold this for five seconds and stand back up. Repeat 10 times.
The key here is to travel up and down with the weight mainly on your heels, but without allowing your toes to lift off of the ground.
Burn, Baby, Burn! These 6 exercises are excellent ways to burn extra fat off your booty while adding the definition you desire. Not used to working your gluteal muscles? You’ll definitely feel the burn the first few days, but the end result will be worth the effort!
