Top 6 Butt Exercises you need in your Workout Routine!
Now, all of us want that enviable booty that will turn heads in the crowd. But in spite of the butt exercises you’re doing, namely the Squat, you still find yourself far away from attaining your booty goal. That’s because the squat is targeting only one set of muscles. The rest of the muscles that need to be toned to attain that gorgeous butt are blissfully on vacation. So, it’s time to get them back into the game. Here are some butt exercises that will target different muscle groups to get you on the path to get that beautiful butt:
1. SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT
In this exercise, you need to begin by standing straight and holding your right hand out in front of you, as shown in the picture. Then you bend your body such that your left leg is stretched out behind you, parallel to the ground. You are sort of forming a ninety-degree angle with your right hand a left leg. Make sure the movement is slow and controlled. Repeat this 10-15 times and then do the same with your left hand and right leg.
2. THE GLUTE BRIDGE
To do this, you need to lie down on your mat. Bend your knees such that the soles of your feet are completely flat on the mat. Then, you need to lift your body up, such that only the soles of your feet and the shoulder region is touching the floor. It’s almost like a body thrust into the air. You need to keep thrusting 10-15 times to complete one set.
3. STEP UP
For this exercise, you need a raised platform, like a low table or a low chair. All you have to do is put one leg on the table, and raise the opposite knee up to your chest. Then you put the foot that is raised into the air back down on the floor. You do the same with the other leg. Repeat this for each leg 10-15 times.
4. HYDRANT WITH LEG EXTENSION
In this exercise, you have to place your hands and knees on the mat. Once you’re in position, you have to lift your leg in the air while keeping your knee bent. It’s almost like a dog lifting its leg to pee. You basically have to imitate that position. Lift each leg 10-15 times to complete one set.
5. SUMO SQUAT TO CALF RAISE
To start this butt exercise, you need to do a sumo squat first. You know how they tell you while doing a squat that your legs should only be shoulder-width apart? Well, in the sumo squat that’s not the case. The gap between your legs needs to be wider and your toes should be pointing to the sides and not to the front. Now, once you’re in this position, raise your heels on both the legs slowly so that you don’t lose your balance. And then slowly put the heels down in a controlled motion. If doing both heels simultaneously is too difficult, try alternate heels. You should ideally be raising each heel 10-15 times to complete one set.
Lunges target your thigh and hip muscles and are excellent for getting your lower body into shape. So, what you have to do is ensure that your upper body remains straight. Then you take one step forward and bend that leg so that your knee is at a 90-degree angle. Similarly, your other leg should also be bent in a manner to form right angles with the ground. Alternate between the two legs. Repeat or each leg 10 times to complete one set.
