You don’t need an expensive gym membership or fancy equipment to get your booty in shape for bikini season. All you really need is your own bodyweight to sculpt, lift and tone your glutes. So, here are five kick-butt moves you can do right at home. Try these butt sculpting exercises today!
Instead of doing the same moves over and over again, Women’s Health’s 2017 Next Fitness Star, Betina Gozo, says you need to work a variety of muscles with different moves to get the booty you want.
Add these exercises to your current routine, or rotate them throughout the week.
Lie on your back, feet flat on the floor and knees bent. Then, raise your hips until you create a straight line from your knees all the way down to your shoulders. Lower your hips, and then repeat.
The difference between the bridge and the bridge hold is simply that once you lift your hips to form a straight line with your shoulders, don’t lower them. Instead, hold this position for 15 seconds before lowering and repeating.
To do the lateral lunge, stand with both feet hip-width apart. With your left foot, make a big step to the left, lunging and pushing your hips back. Hold this position momentarily before returning to your original position, and repeat on the other side.
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Then, bend knees, pushing hips back and sink as low as you can. Hold this position momentarily before pushing back up and repeating.
Plank leg lift
Start with a plank where you rest on your forearms and toes. Then, zip up through your core, and lift one leg up and then place it down. Repeat on the other side, while keeping your body as still as possible.
