One of the most desired muscles women really want to tone, especially during the summer at the beach, is the gluteus maximus or simply the buttocks. For one reason or another, most just cannot seem to achieve the results they desire thus making them quit and leave it for another time (never). Unfortunately, these girls usually follow a fad diet or popular workout that is supposed to shape your buttocks. It really is not hard to accomplish with the right workout and a healthful diet. Below are some of the best exercises to do in order to get the glutes looking good.
The Best Exercises for your Booty
Exercise #1: Cardio
Cardio exercises such as uphill walking or running hills, the elliptical machine or the stepmill can be extremely effective for toning up the gluteus muscles and for just burning fat in general. You could try some intervals which would be to alternate from running as fast as you can for one minute and walking the next 1-3 minutes. It is recommended that you do this for at least thirty minutes three to five times per week.
Exercise #2: Squats
Squats not only target the buttocks, but give definition to the hips and thighs as well and build up muscles in the legs. To do a squat, start by standing with your feet about hip-width apart and choose weights you can manage to hold at your sides. Bend the knees until you are in a squatting position. The motion will make it seem as if you were going to take a seat, but keep the torso upright and your buttocks behind you.
Exercise #3: Lunges
Similar to the squat, lunges also build up muscles in the buttocks, hips, legs, and thighs. For those without leg strength it may be a bit difficult to perform at first so do the exercise without any weights at first until you can handle it. Start by putting one foot in front of the other while lowering the body to the ground until the front knee is at a 90 degree angle. Next, stand back up and repeat with the opposite leg.
The exercises above can help you build muscle and a tone up your glutes if you stick to them.
