Everyone wants a toned butt, but achieving it can be tough. We’ve been told that just doing squats all day will get you that dream butt in no time- but that’s not the case. Achieving a toned butt takes work and won’t just happen overnight.
You need to eat a healthy diet, workout consistently, and do the right exercises that are going to tone and shape your behind. Here are a few of our favorite efficient but straightforward butt workouts:
Single-Leg Glute Bridge
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor. Extend one leg into the air and as you exhale, squeeze your glutes and push your hips upwards. Wait a few seconds in this position and then lower your butt until it’s right above the floor. Make sure your butt doesn’t touch the floor!
This is like your average squat, but with a little twist. Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Push your hips back almost like you’re going to sit down. Quickly stand up from this position and continue pulsing into a squat position for 15-20 reps. Try to push your butt back as far as you can, but keep your shoulders back and feet steady on the ground.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Step your left leg behind you to the right, so your thighs cross. Then bend both knees into a lunge position like you are curtsying. Switch sides and repeat.
