8 Moves to Get Your Best Butt Ever

Posted -

As Elle Woods famously said, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy.” In other words, not only can squeezing in a quick workout make you look good, but it’s going to make you feel good too. Everyone has that one area they want to get in check, but right now we’re talking about the booty. Stop fawning over how perf Kim and ‘Yonce’s behinds look in their skin-tight dresses and get a celebrity butt of your own with these workouts!   

1. Hydrant with Kick

Test your balance and enhance your bum with this multipurpose move. The kick helps work out your butt while balancing with just your arms and one leg. It will also help with stabilization to tone your abs. Talk about multitasking!

2. Sumo Squat

The deeper the squat, the more muscles you work. You’re definitely going to feel the burn in your glutes and thighs with this one.

3. Superman

You may not have super powers to help you get fit, but this move is a good start. Tighten your abs and your behind while you pretend that you’re flying high...except you’re still on the workout mat.

4. Jump Squat

Jump squats are the perfect way to tone your butt and legs at the same time. The jump adds a cardio element to your workout routine, which means you can totally burn off that extra slice of pizza before bedtime.

5. Bridge with Leg Lift

This move is abs-olutely the way to get your perfect Kim K booty. Working your back, core and butt, you can do this move lying in bed or in between Netflix episodes. If it seems challenging at first, put both feet on the ground and work up to the leg lift.

6. Donkey Kicks

Reach for the sky or the ceiling with this workout. The best way to get the most out of it is to pace yourself and don’t go too fast because you don’t want to pull any muscles.

7. Side Lunges

Get a better booty one cheek at a time with this exercise! Keep proper form and hold weights to tone your arms at the same time.

8. Triangle Crunch

This one’s all about balance as it works the core, butt and arms. This move may be awkward at first, but you can totally nail it! Just think about those ‘after’ pics you post on Insta.
