Get a Firm Butt

on April 27, 2010

Having a hard time shaping up your rear end?

If you’re feeling a little saggy from the rear view, there are plenty of fun and challenging exercises you can do in conjunction with your essential cardio workouts and fine tuned eating plan.

Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Split squats– either on bench, bosu or ball. Add weights for intensity.
Start with your back leg elevated, front leg forward in a lunge position.
Bend your back leg and drop your knee toward the floor.
Come back to standing.
2 sets of 15 on each side.

2. Quadruped hip extension– floor
Start on your hands and knees.
Lift one leg off the floor with your knee bent, and push your flat foot toward the ceiling (harder- put a hand weight behind your knee and squeeze between your calf and hamstring).
Lower leg and repeat.
2 sets of 20 on each leg.

3. Squat jumps– never on concrete!
Start in a squat position, feet a little wider than hip width.
Bounce up in the air like you’re going to hit a ball, both arms raise up above your head.
Drop back into a squat, keeping your knees behind your toes.
Repeat up to 20 times then rest.

A great butt workout is sometimes hard to put into action. Make sure you’re motivated to continue and work past your comfort level.

Have fun and get working!
