The Gluteus Maximus is definitely one of those areas that can always be improved no matter what it looks likes. Now that Summer is here, we want to be bikini ready! We really want to look and feel our best at the beach, parties or any Summer event this season.
If going to the gym and working out there really isn’t your scene, it’s understandable. Achieving a full, intense workout is completely possible from home. I’ve pulled together the main exercises to tone your butt wherever you decide to get your workout on.
Squats are a great way to sculpt your butt and get that round bubble butt you want. Do properly do a squat, stand with your legs slightly more than shoulder width apart and place your hands on your hips for balance. slowly bend as if you are about to sit in a chair making sure your knees do not extend out too far. This is by far one of my favorite butt exercises, because it’s also really really for your legs as well.
Lunges target that area right below your butt to shape underneath. Start by standing with your legs together. Step with one leg in front of the other bending each leg at a ninety degree angle while alternating each leg.
Get on all fours while also alternating each leg. Kick your leg back and point it up. Try keeping your leg at a ninety degree angle and kicking your leg up as high as it can go.
Planks And Side Planks
Planks and side planks are great exercises to tone your butt because they are pretty challenging. They are not only good for your butt, but pretty much every core muscle in your body like your abdominals. Get down on all fours again and hold your body up with your four arms and your tip toes. Hold the plank for at least thirty seconds. If it begins to be too difficult, rock back and forth while still remaining in the plank position.
Start in the same position as you normally would for regular lunges, except when doing side lunges, step out from left to right with each leg instead of forward. This will shape the sides of your butt and well as creating more muscular, stronger quads.
Bridges great for creating stronger gluteus muscles and reduces straining in your neck. Lay on the floor with your back flat and knees bent. Raise your hips up as high as you can while squeezing your butt. Do three sets of ten to really feel the burn.
Lay with your back flat on the ground as if you were going to do sets of crunches. Instead lay with your legs straight out. Lift each leg until they are straight and lined up with your hips. Alternate each leg and do each one ten times.
It can be tough to stay dedicated to any sort of workout regiment, but it’s important to remember to be consistent while maintaining a well balanced diet. Be sure to do these workouts everyday for at least a few weeks before you begin to see results. Remember that results do not come overnight. Change takes time and soon enough, your butt will be bikini ready for a Summer of beach adventures and fun in the sun!
