Hey ladies, and fellas….if you want a booty you have to work for it! Yes, some of us are lucky and have a derrière to die for but even those lucky few have to keep it in shape. The basic barbell exercises such as the squat and deadlift work wonders for building a strong, big, firm butt. However, there are times we can’t get to the gym and need to get our booty workout in.
Here is my personal secret for keeping my booty beautiful:
1. DEEP box step ups
2. Jump Squats
Perform 3-5 sets with 10-15 reps on each exercise.
Focus on driving your HEELS onto the box when performing the step ups. This will activate your gluteus maximus and medius muscles. If you press with your toes it will activate your quads which you don’t want. Make sure you’re not rounding your back or caving your knees inward when performing jump squats. You may substitute this with regular air squats or use a kettlebell and perform goblet squats.
