Kick Butt Exercises for Great Glutes — Exercise #4

So I took a poll among my favorite moms, and the number one body part that most of them want to improve is the BUTTOCKS (as my daughter would say in a kind of English accent).  Moms aren’t the only ones either. A poll by Fitness Magazine found that the butt is the one body part that most people don’t like about themselves.

I decided to put together a list of some of the best booty burning exercises to help you get ready for shorts and swim suits.

Five do-at-home exercises for five days. Here is #4. Choose a few faves or do them all to get great glutes.

Run Your Butt Off

So this one isn’t the do-it-front-of-the-TV option, but to add shape to your booty…RUN. On mother earth, if you can — not a treadmill, stair stepper, or elliptical. These machines are great for cardio and your thigh muscles, but they don’t do anything for your butt muscles, mainly because the design of the machine doesn’t allow the butt muscles to contract. And if you don’t use it you’ll lose it!

The biggest thing you can do to really boost your booty is to sprint. Have you ever noticed the butts on women sprinters in the Olympics… wow! Sprinting or interval training really firms up the muscles; because the faster you run the stronger your butt muscles have to contract in order to propel you forward.  So a 20-30 minute run with jogging and sprinting mixed in will do wonders for your buttocks.

Another one to do in front of the TV.

 

All Four Your Butt

This is a great buttocks busting exercise that promotes both a strong booty and core, by using balance and focus to do this exercise right.  (You can even add a little weight to your ankle if you need more of a challenge.)

Begin on all fours resting on your hands and knees. Arms straight with hands directly under your shoulders and knees bent under your hips with back flat. Lift and extend opposite arm and leg off the floor to slightly above shoulder and hip level. Toes down and thumb up. Hold and squeeze for a 5 sec count and return slowly. Repeat on opposite sides.

 Do 20 reps total, 10 each side. It’s important to hold the top position and squeeze your glutes as tight as you can on each rep.

Wall Up

This exercise also tones up the thighs and abs! You can do this while you are watching your favorite TV show.

Lay on your back about a foot away from the wall. Bend your hips and knees to 90 degrees and place your feet flat on the wall. Push into the wall and contract your glutes to lift your bottom off the floor. Return to the start and repeat 10 -20 times.

 For an added challenge, raise one leg straight in the air (so it’s not touching the wall), and do the exercise one-legged. Make sure to get both sides!
