We all love the booty BURN feeling. Everyone knows that the basic squat will do the job and it is one of my favorite exercises. However, for the best results it’s better to mixing things up. There are so many different exercises you can do to get a bigger, more toned butt. So, if you’re ready to try a new glute routine, try these glutes exercises for one of your best butt workouts!
A basis squat is where you start. Plant your feet on the floor just a little bit wider than your shoulders and angle your feet slightly outward. Straighten your back and then bend your knees. Pretend that you’re going to sit back in a chair. Keep your heels on the floor. Lower yourself in a controlled manner, keep your back straight and look forward during the exercise. Go as low as you can and then push up and slowly rise.
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor. Push your hips up towards the ceiling as high as you can and squeeze your glutes. Hold it for a second, then lower your butt down till right above the floor. This is one single rep. If you really want to challenge yourself, you can do a single leg bridge or a leg extension during the bridge.
A glute kickback is a low impact glute exercise. Kneel on the floor, place your hand straight under your shoulders and make sure your knees are directly under your hips. Lift one leg up until your hamstring is in line with your back. Keep your leg in a 90-degree angle and squeeze your glutes while lifting your leg. Hold the contraction at the top for a second before lowering your leg down.
Start in a standing position with both feet on the floor. Keep your upper body straight and step forward with one leg. Lower your hips until both knees are bent in a 90-degree angle. Make sure your front knee is above your feet and not pushed to far over. The other knee is down till right above the floor. Keep the weight in your heels as you push back up to the starting position. And of course, don’t forget to squeeze your glutes!
You can start doing this butt workout with these effective glute exercises any time. You can choose to do every exercise for about 45 seconds and repeat every exercise 3 or 4 times. Or you can do every exercise for 10-12 reps and then repeat 3 times.
Have fun and let that booty burn! 🙂 Marischa
