Ok, I’ve got 3 booty exercises to score a sexy toned tush just in time for summer!
No, that’s definitely not my booty above (gosh in my dreams right?) ha! But saying that, I have been on this fitness journey of mine for a couple of years, and there’s a few exercises that I’ve noticed provide more visible results than others.
DISCLAIMER: Before I go any further, I have to mention that I am NOT a qualified trainer, and therefore all information provided in this article in purely my own personal opinion and advice that I received personally from trained practitioners. This has worked for me, but I would recommend you talk to your trainer/doctor whoever before starting any new type of exercise. Phew! That’s a bit of a mouthful isn’t it? Right, let’s get on with it, shall we? I usually do about 3 sets of 10-12 reps of each exercise.
1. Butt Raises!
Lay on the ground with your knees bent, hip width apart. Lift your hips to the sky and squeeze your butt at the top. Keep your toes off the ground and push through
your heels to activate your glutes (booty).
*Variations: to make this a little more challenging, you can try this with one leg raised or hold a weight or a similar weighted object on your hips for that extra burn!
2. Weighted Sumo Squats!
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width and your toes pointed slightly out. Hold a weight or something similar with both hands, keep your shoulders back. Drop your butt to 45 degrees, and ensure your knees stay behind your toes and point in the same direction as your feet. Squeeze your butt on the way back up.
* Variations* If you are a beginner, then lose the weights and work your way up to incorporating them.
3. Weighted Lunges!
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, hold a weight in each hand (if you have some). Take one large step forward, lower your back knee to just above the ground. Ensure both your knees are facing forward and your front knee is behind your toes. Stand back up straight and focus on activating your glutes (butt muscles).
There you go folks, commit, be consistent (at least 3x a week to see results), eat well, give these a try and see how you get on. Let me know in the comments below,what your favourite booty exercise is, if you have one. Till next time, remember to love the life you’re living! Xo
