One of the most requested exercises are butt exercises. Many of the clients in Houston, Tx just want a toned sexy butt, but others want to make their backside bigger or shrink their booty. I put together some butt exercises that help achieve each desire. There are everyday things you can do to boost your booty and get your glutes in shape for that bikini. One of those is to take a walk. Walking helps get the glutes into shape. It’s especially good if you walk on uneven terrain and climb a few hills. Riding a bike can also improve your bottom. Not only will these exercises help you tone your butt, they’ll make it smaller, especially when combined with clean eating.
Tone your butt with hip lifts.
A hip lift may look simple, but it can be tough. Lie down with your back on the floor and arms to your side. Bend your knees, keeping your feet flat on the floor when you do. Lift your hips up toward the ceiling, creating a triangle. Hold, squeezing your butt muscles and hamstrings for a minute and lower your bottom back down. As you get more proficient, when you’ve raised your butt, keep your thighs parallel to one another and straighten one leg, pointing it straight ahead. Hold for a few seconds, then lower the foot back to the floor, followed by lowering your hips.
There’s a lot of great exercises you can do for your butt with exercise bands to enhance them.
If you’ve never done butt kicks, getting on bended knees on all fours and kicking back and up, one leg at a time, that’s a good place to start. To make it more difficult, stretch an exercise band around both your feet, making the kick up a lot tougher. Putting it around your calves and side stepping also boosts your glutes, as does doing deep squats with a band just above the knees.
Build a bigger butt with barbells squats.
Deadlifts, lunges and hip thrusts are also great butt builders, but the key is to ensure you have sufficient resistance. Heavier weights and fewer reps are the key. If you have a really heavy lift, do only two to six reps. For moderately heavy, eight to twelve reps is good and for light—but still heavy for you, twenty reps and no more will build your butt. Exercise your muscles more frequently, meaning do exercises three times a week.
- A great butt exercise that’s easy to do and burns extra calories too is to take the stairs. Climbing stairs builds a beautiful booty.
- Switch out that easy chair for TV watching or chair at work with a balance ball. It improves your core muscles while glamorizing your glutes.
- Lie on your back. Do a bridge and squeeze at the top of the bridge. That helps boost the strength and tone of the glutes.
- If you want some quick results, do a reverse lunge. Instead of stepping forward and squatting down, step backward with one foot and squat.
