5 Great Exercises For Your Butt

Everyone wants that tight, firm butt right?

Here are 5 great exercises for your Butt:

Great Butt Exercise #1: SQUAT

The squat exercise should be a staple in any workout or training program as it is very functional and we use this movement daily. It is of course awesome for adding definition to that booty too.

Position your feet just outside shoulder width apart with your toes pointing forward. If doing bodyweight, you can place your arms out in front of you for balance. Move your butt downward with the goal being to get your butt in line with your knees or quads parallel to the floor. Make sure your weight is shifted towards your heels and they are on the floor.

To intensify this movement, add a weighted barbell or dumbbells.

Great exercise for working your gluteals (butt), quadriceps (thighs) and hips.

Place one foot in front of the other, a stride apart. Bend down until both your knees are bent at 90 degrees. Your back knee should be just off the ground and the front knee shouldn’t extend past your foot. Keep your back straight and chest out.

Lie on your back, bring your heels together and form a V with your feet, toes pointing up towards the sky. Make sure your knees are bent at 90 degrees and your head is on the ground relaxed. Place your hands together, fingers pointing towards the sky and stretch out your arms. Lift your butt off the ground squeezing your butt and core tight and then slowly lower it back down.
Great Butt Exercise #4: PLANK LEG RAISES

To set this one up, get in the plank position lying face down with your elbows on the ground directly underneath your shoulders. Raise your hips off the ground using your toes to stabilise you forming a straight line from head to toe. Once in position, begin to raise one leg slowly off the ground maintaining the plank position until you reach maximum range. Lower back down slowly and repeat on the other side. This is not a beginners exercise so make sure you have mastered the plank before moving to this one 🙂

Great Butt Exercise #5: RUNNING

Running is great for working your butt and you get a cardiovascular benefit at the same time.

Make it your mission this year to exercise 3+ times per week for 30-60 minutes using various modes of training.

Burn, Baby, Burn! These 5 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!

Please resist the urge to let past failures get you down. I don’t care how many times you’ve tried and failed to transform your body – and you shouldn’t either. What matters is that you’re motivated NOW, so let’s grab that momentum and get moving!
