Use These Exercises for a Stronger, Firmer Butt
Achieving a great butt doesn’t mean you have to resort to just squats and bridges. If you want to stay motivated (and not bored) mix it up. There are numerous exercises that target the glutes so you can get the booty that makes you feel great in jeans.
Lunges, front and lateral, are an excellent exercise to add to your booty routine. Not only do they work your glutes, but they will also help tone your thighs and calves.
Step-ups are another exercise you can incorporate into your exercise routine. They can be easily performed with a sturdy bench or chair. Simply stand in front of your bench. Step up on to the bench with your left leg. Plant both feet on the bench, then step back down. Repeat with the right leg. The higher the bench, the more you will work your butt.
- Stand tall holding a kettlebell with your right hand with feet hip-width apart.
- Place your weight in your left leg, keeping a slight bend in the knee, and bring your right leg behind you.
- Exhale, pulling your abs toward your spine, and tip your torso forward while lifting your right leg up as your torso lowers, until it comes almost parallel to the floor. Focus on the glutes doing the work.
- Then lower your right leg back to return to your starting position as you return to standing, but don't let the right toes touch the ground. This completes one rep."
