There is no denying the fact that every lady wants a perfectly firm and round booty. If you’re carrying a bit of extra body fat around the hips and thighs, your butt will have a flabby shape, so dieting is crucial. Still, you cannot strengthen your butt without exercising, and only a strong butt is a sexy butt. Building your butt muscles will contribute to accentuating your natural curves and help you get a tighter and rounder butt.
We’re often led to believe that getting a perfectly shaped butt is all about genetics, but this is not true. Whatever your butt shape, you can tone your butt by hitting the butt muscles – the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus with the right set of exercises. So let’s get sweaty, healthy and sexy!
1. Side kick on all fours
Get down on all fours. Keeping your back straight, lift one leg on the side under a 90 degree angle and raise it up to your hip level. Return to original position and perform 5 sets of 10 repetitions with each leg.
2. Step Forward
Stand up straight with feet shoulder-distance apart. Take a dumbbell and hold it in front of you with arms fully extended. Take a large step diagonally forward with your right foot. Your leg should be under a 90 degree angle. Lower the left leg diagonally while bending your knee and curl the dumbbells upwards. Return to the original position and perform 3 sets of 10 repetitions with each leg.
Get down on all fours and support your body weight on your elbows. Place a resistance band on your right foot, holding the ends with your hands. Raise the right leg until it forms a straight line with the rest of your body. Return to the original position and perform 20 repetitions with each leg.
4. Elbow plank with donkey kick
Start from a plank position and bend your right knee so that your heel is facing the ceiling, keeping a straight back. Lift the leg up without moving the hips. Perform 2 sets of 10 repetitions with each leg.
5. Dumbbell Squats
Place your feet should-width apart and take a pair of dumbbells. Squat down, keeping your back straight and your weight over your heels. As you lower yourself down, curl the dumbbells toward your upper arms. Squeeze the glutes as you return to the original position. Perform 2 sets of 10 reps.
