Contrary to popular belief, developing a shapely and toned posterior does not require complex exercises or any fancy equipment. In fact, your booty is actually one of the easiest areas of the body to workout, as it’s one of the largest muscles in the body and is required for almost all full body movements and exercises, which is why compound, functional training is so effective at toning and shaping your butt.
Want to Know the Best Way to Safely Sculpt & Tone Your Butt?
I get asked this question all the time! Let me tell you…
I know it’s popular today to engage in heavy squats, deadlifts and more aggressive, olympic style exercises. But, this is out of reach for most people…more importantly, these are not necessary exercises to perform in-order to tone and sculpt to your butt.
While most of my clients engage in full-body, functional training…I’ve put together a short video of a 3 functional exercise sequence that targets your butt and legs. These 3 butt toning exercises:
- do not require any fancy equipment
- can be done anywhere/everywhere
- are great for both beginners, as well as those who are more advanced
**Remember, when it comes to training and working out, it’s not just the individual exercises that matter, but rather the sequence with which you are doing them…this is the key to producing the desired results and maximizing your workout time!
Exercises Highlighted in the Video
Exercise #1 – Hip Bridge
The hip bridge targets the butt and the backs of the legs (hamstring), it also provides a great stretch for the hip flexors when fully extended. See video for instruction.
Exercise #2 – Lunge
The lunge targets the butt and the tops of the thigh (quadtriceps). See video for instruction…just remember don’t let your knee hit the ground.
Exercise #3 – Prone Frog Legs
Prone frog legs directly targets the gluteus (butt), as well as the lower back and backs of the thighs (hamstrings). See video for instructions.
Do each exercise in this order, 20 reps each for 2 rounds, working towards 3 rounds.
