Shape Up Saturday Series: Favorite Butt Workouts

Uncategorized
Alright, so as y’all may already know, I reached all of my weight loss goals, so I had to make new ones!  During my 41lbs weight loss, I lost all of my booty!  My new goals are to have abs and a butt by summer time.  Some of these workouts I shared a few months ago in my favorite legs workout post (here), but some of them also work your bum too, so why not kill two birds with one stone?
Let’s move on to my favorite booty workouts!
LUNGE

Step 1

Step 2
Make sure both knees are at a 90 degree angle.  Don’t let your knee go over your toe and try to get your other knee to just graze the ground.  I unfortunately cannot just yet, my legs aren’t strong enough but I will get there!
SQUAT

Step 1
Stand with your legs shoulder width apart.

Step 2
Squat down, stick your booty out.  If you feel like you look awkward you’re doing it right!  Make sure your knees DO NOT go over your toes.  Now, when you stand back up, squeeze your butt before you go into your next squat.

DONKEY KICKS


Step 1
Get down on all fours.  Make sure your hands and knees are shoulder width apart, you have a straight line from your neck to your butt (and eventually your leg when you move to step two).

Step 2
Now, lift your leg and as you lift it straighten it to look like the above picture.  Try and squeeze your butt while doing this.
GLUTE BRIDGES

Step 1
Make sure feet are spread apart because you’re going to need to hold yourself up.

Step 2
Lift your pelvis and try to squeeze your butt.
Bloopers!  My Fave!

Well, don’t we all wish we could be couch potatoes!
