Here are 8 butt exercises that will help you get the booty you always wanted
Pilates, yoga, and aerobics are some of the most popular butt exercises. But if you want to get more creative with how you tone your tush, there are myriad unique exercises that can target specific muscle groups.
From squats and lunges to donkey kicks and hip bridges, these movements will help tighten your booty.
If you’re a beginner, start with two sets of 10 reps of each exercise per day. As you get stronger and more comfortable with each movement, gradually increase the number of sets and reps.
Remember to work both sides equally so that one side doesn’t become stronger than the other!
Squats are one of the most effective exercises for toning your butt as they focus on multiple muscles at once: your glutes as well as your quads and hamstrings.
To do a squat properly, make sure that your feet are shoulder-width apart and keep your back straight as you lower down into position until your thighs are parallel to the ground.
Then stand back up slowly to complete one rep.
Lunges also work multiple muscle groups at the same time – your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves – while improving balance and stability in the process.
To do a lunge correctly, stand with feet shoulder-width apart then take a big step forward with one foot while keeping your torso straight.
Bend both knees at 90 degrees before pushing off with your front leg to return to starting position (be sure not to let either knee go over the toe line).
Donkey kicks involve getting on all fours on a mat while keeping the core engaged throughout the movement.
Keep elbows slightly bent and wrists directly under shoulders while squeezing buttocks muscles together as you raise one leg behind you until the thigh is parallel with the floor; don’t arch your lower back during this step or bring your knee higher than hip level!
Release slowly back down for one rep.
Hip bridges use smaller motions but can be rather challenging because it targets larger muscles like hip abductors as well as glutes for an effective butt workout!
Start by lying flat on your back with feet bent at a 90-degree angle then lift your hips off the floor by pressing through heels whilst squeezing buttocks muscles together for added support – lifting higher than normal bridge where only the upper back touches the floor is what reaps maximum benefits from this exercise – before returning hips to the floor for one rep completed!
Side Leg Lifts
Lie on the right side with legs extended straight out in front of you and left arm resting on floor beside you as a point of balance (place the right arm in front or hold lightweight if needed).
Slowly raise left leg toward the ceiling while keeping toes pointed forward, then lower back down slowly without touching the ground.
Place one foot onto an elevated surface such as a stair or stool approximately 18 inches high; Step up onto the box driving through the heel and pushing off with the toe; Ensure both feet touch the box before stepping down
Begin in standing position, drop into squat position placing hands on the floor directly in front, jump feet back together into a plank position, hop feet inward without losing plank form, jump upwards raising arms overhead, return back into squat stance, and repeat the burpee movement.
The one-legged deadlift is an effective exercise for targeting the muscles of the legs, glutes, and core. It requires balance and control, so it’s a great way to build coordination as well. Here’s how to do a proper one-legged deadlift.
Begin by standing on your left leg, with your right foot a few inches off the ground behind you. Make sure your spine stays neutral throughout the movement.
Place a light dumbbell or kettlebell in your right hand and bring it down so that it is in line with your toes.
As you lower yourself into the squat position on your left leg, keep your torso upright while extending your free leg behind you until you feel tension in your hamstring. Keep your eyes looking straight ahead throughout this motion and maintain an even breathing pattern.
Once you reach the bottom position, drive through the heel of your working leg to come back up to standing position while keeping the weight close to your body at all times (inhale as you go down and exhale as you come up). Try to avoid any jerking motions of the weight during this move for safety reasons.
With any luck (and hard work), following these exercises should help tighten up those buns in no time!
Remember to stay hydrated throughout exercise sessions – always drink plenty of water before/during/after physical activity – keep track of progress too since seeing results helps motivate even more!
