Tom Holland, Bowflex Fitness Advisor, demonstrates five butt exercises at are sure to leave you feeling less behind rather than more.
We start with that simple yet so effective squat. So feet a little wider than shoulder width apart, hands out in front of you, sit back as if you are in a chair. 10 to 15 repetitions or 30 to 60 seconds, whatever you want to do.
We take that to a lunge: step back, come back forward, reverse lunge really working one glute at a time.
And then we take that to a balance exercise that targets the glute: toe touch. You are going to balance on one leg, hinge at the hip, knees a little bit bent, 10-15 reps one side or 30 to 60 seconds, and then you switch.
We take that to a step up: take a box about knee height, step up, step back down, do 10 to 15 reps or 30 to 60 seconds if you want and then you are going to switch.
And then for number five, a little more advanced: high-intensity box jump. You are going to jump up with both feet, then step off with one foot, repeat that again. 10 to 15 reps or 30 to 60 seconds.
And there you have it: five great butt exercises.
If you are just starting your fitness routine, you may want to start with a lower box than what is shown. Be sure you have plenty of space around you and you are clear of potentially dangerous objects when performing box jumps.
