No expensive gym equipment required, just some good old fashioned dedication and motivation – your bootylicious behind is only 10 steps away!
1. Front Lunges
Front lunges are one of the absolute best exercises for your butt. To start, stand up straight with your hands on your hips. Take a big step forward with one leg, bending at the knee, until your knee is at a 90 degree angle. Step back. Repeat 15 to 20 times with each leg.
Running isn’t just great cardio, it’s also a marvelous exercise for your butt! Even a good jog or brisk walk can help tone your tush. Lace up your shoes and go!
Stand with your hands and arms straight in front of you, then, keeping your back straight, squat as though you’re going to sit in a chair behind you. Stop when your thighs are level with the ground, and your knees are bent at a 90 degree angle. If it helps, you can lean against a wall to keep your balance.
4. Leg Lift
Lie flat on your back with your legs straight, and raise one leg straight in the air. Try not to bend your knee! Then, with your arms and hands flat on the ground, raise your hips off the ground. Hold for five seconds. Repeat ten to fifteen times with each leg. Feel the burn! This is one exercise for your butt that you’ll feel right away. It also helps strengthen your core.
If you’re just not cut out for distance running, try sprinting and adding hurdles to the mix. Somehow the combination of the sprint with the leaping motion helps tone your butt!
6. Scissor Kicks
These are a Jane Fonda classic, but they work! Lie on one side, all straight, propped up on one elbow. Lift your outside leg slowly, keeping both legs straight. Hold it in the air for 15 seconds, the lower your leg. Repeat 15 times one each side.
7. Elliptical Machine
The elliptical is our favorite torture machine at the gym. Why? Because half an hour (or even an hour) is a complete workout, toning your muscles (including your butt!) and giving your heart a good workout.
8. Simple Bridge
Lay flat on your back with your arms flat at your sides. Lift your hips into the air, keeping your arms flat but bending your knees. Hold the position at least 15 to 20 seconds, longer if you can. Repeat 12 to 15 times.
Prop yourself up on your elbows, stomach down. Push yourself up on your toes, stretch out, legs straight, and hold this plank position as long as you can. Can you do it for a minute? Two? Let’s find out, and exercise your butt at the same time!
Whether you choose a stationary bike or a real live bicycle, biking is another fantastic exercise for your butt. If you’re doing it outdoors, make sure to wear a helmet — safety first!
