BEST Booty Exercise #1: LUNGE An amazing exercise that targets the muscles of your butt, thighs, and hips is the lunge. Putting one foot out in front of the other, lower your body toward the ground, keeping your abdominals tight and your torso straight. Lower until the front knee is bent at 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 a kettle bell or dumbbell in front of your chest.
BEST Booty Exercise #2: HIP LIFT 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, SLOWLY lift your bottom and lower back off of the floor (picture slowly turning a dial, and contract your booty/hamstrings all the way up). Hold for a few seconds, and then slowly lower yourself. Repeat. 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 Resistance band. Stand up straight with your legs hip-width apart and tie the band around your lower legs. Squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor, your back is straight, 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. Raise your top leg slowly into the air, as high as you can, so your legs make a “V” shape. Hold for a few seconds, and then slowly lower your leg. Repeat 10 times, turn onto the other side, and lift the other leg. Focus on pushing the outside of your heel up to the roof/sky.
BEST Booty Exercise #5: SPRINT Sprinting outside or on the treadmill is a great exercise that works your butt while giving you a cardio workout to burn fat at the same time.
BEST Booty Exercise #6: PLIE SQUAT Another form of squat is the plie 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 out to the sides. This is what ballerinas call the plie position. 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.
… And of course you have the SQUAT!! This is the ULTIMATE booty shaper that you MUST add to your routine. You just have to make sure that you go low enough (that means lower then 90 degrees). Crossfitters like to call it ass to the grass, just make sure that your back isn’t rounded, and that you keep your weight on your heels.
Burn, Baby, Burn! These 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!
