Get Your BUTT Ready for Summer!

Think of Your Butt: Exercises for a Rounder, Bigger Butt 
 
These days, it seems like a competition of who can have the biggest butt. If you want to make yours bigger, or just want to tone up an already ample booty, try these exercises! 
 
1. Sumo Squat: 
Place legs slightly more than shoulder length apart. Making sure your knees don’t extend over your feet, slowly bend down (as if you’re about to sit), getting your butt as close to the ground as you can. To make this harder, you can use weights! 
 
2. Walking Lunges:
 Many people know that lunges can tone your legs, but not everybody knows that they also tone your butt! Holding a weight in each hand (optional), slowly lunge your way across the room, making sure knees don’t extend over toes. 
 
3. Glute Bridges: 
Begin by lying on your back. Keeping feet on the floor, bend your knees. Lift your hips, pushing through the heels of your feet. Once you get to the top, squeeze your glutes and lower your hips back down. This is one rep. 
 
4. Fire Hydrants:
 Start on your hands and knees. To do this exercise, bend and lift one leg so that it is perpendicular to your body (Silly as it sounds, think of a dog lifting his leg on a fire hydrant). Slowly lower your leg back down. Repeat on both sides for the desired amount of reps. 
 
5. Donkey Kicks:
 Start on your hands and knees. Keeping your leg bent, slowly raise your leg straight behind you, keeping your foot flat as if you were balancing a tray on it. When you get to the top of the exercise, squeeze your glutes and slowly lower leg back down. Repeat on other side for desired amount of reps.
