Fitness for All: Butt-building exercises

Written by Lisa Jillanza

If you are looking to “build a better butt” this year, then you simply need to add these butt-boosters to your daily workout!

Butt Exercises

(With all of these exercises aim for three sets of 15 reps)

Squats : Squats will always top the list of any butt building exercise plan, but you need to do them correctly.

Keep feet parallel, shoulder-width apart. Slowly lower the hips as if sitting in a chair; then return to standing. Make sure your knees do not push out in front of your toes. Keep your torso tight and back straight.

Ball Squats : If you are a beginner to squats, it could be beneficial to you to use a large ball to help you balance while you perfect your form.

Keep the ball between your low back and a wall. Slowly perform the classic squat. Walk your feet out in front so the knees stay behind your toes.

Forward Lunge : Besides toning your butt, the forward lunge also tones the thighs and calves.

With your feet parallel and hip-distance apart, take one giant step forward. Lower your body slowly, bending both knees, and return to standing. Repeat on the other side. Bend your knees no more than 90 degrees. Keep your front knee stacked right over your front ankle. Do not rest your back knee on the ground.

Backward Lunge : Or you could also try a backwards lunge because it works your glutes a little bit harder than the forward variety.  This lunge also adds flexibility to the hips and helps to align your body better, a common problem for people who spend most of their day sitting at a desk.

Use the same posture as in a forward lunge, but step backward to position the lower leg. Don't let the front knee push out in front of your toes.
