Exercises for a Bodacious Booty

 

We all envy celebrities like Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez, for they were blessed with a beautiful backside. To be known for a perfect butt must be an awesome feeling and a huge ego booster for any woman! Unfortunately, there are some women that were not blessed with a bodacious booty. Do you feel like you might be…lacking…in that area or even just feel like your butt could be shapelier? Well fortunately there is good news! Unlike breast, you do not need to spend thousands of dollars on implants to get that perfect butt (even though some women get butt implants anyway)! All you have to do is dedicate some time in the gym to work out those glutes! After a few weeks of working out those muscles, you’ll be filling out those skinny jeans or a little black dress like you never have before. Here are five great exercises that will shape up that butt.

  1. Squats: Squats are by far the most beneficial exercise for your butt and your legs as well. Squats target your glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings. First, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Next, lower your butt towards the floor by bending your knees. Do not let your knees lean over your toes. Act as if you were sitting on an imaginary chair! You’ll really feel the burn in your thighs and butt. It is important that you must squat as low as you can so that this exercise may work effectively. Do four sets of twenty-five. 
  2. Lunges: Lunges are a legendary exercise that targets those glutes and thighs. First, stand should-width apart. Next, take a large step forward with your right or left foot. Then, bend your legs until your front leg makes a 90-degree angle. After this, you can either bring your next leg forward and repeat, or you may do the lunges in place by simply bringing your leg back to step one and repeating the steps again with your other leg. Do three sets of fifteen (a lunge from each leg counts as one). 
  3. Glute Kickback: This exercise targets your butt and your hamstrings. First, get on the floor on your hands and knees. Next, raise one of your legs as high as you can without arching your back while bending your knee at a 90-degree angle. Then, bring your leg back down and repeat. Be sure to squeeze your glutes the entire time. Do two sets of twenty for each leg. 
  4. Butt Lift: This is a simple yet effective exercise that really gives your butt that perky shape. Lye on your back with your knees bent and hands by your side. Next, lift your hips all the way off the floor as high as you can, then back down again. It may sound simple, but you’ll really feel the burn off of this one! Do two sets of twenty.
  5. Stair Stepper: Stair machines are not only excellent for your glutes, it is also an excellent form of cardio. You burn fat and shape up your butt at the same time! Do this machine at a fast pace for thirty minutes. If you are not able to find a stair machine, find a flight of stairs or maybe even some bleachers. Either way, climbing stairs is a fat burning workout that will tone and define your glutes. 

 

 

All of these exercises will strengthen your glutes. If you did not have a butt before, you will soon realize that your butt does exist! Some people just gain muscle in that area easier than others. Take your butt into your own hands! After you have achieved your ideal booty, go ahead and do a victory dance to “Baby Got Back”, because all your hard work surely paid off!
