3 GREAT BUTT EXERCISES
1. Sunrise Squat Kicks
A terrific way to get a firmer butt and sexy lift to your glutes. Squat down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold a beat, exhale as you push through your heels and stand back up, kick your leg back, flexing the glutes as hard as you can. Repeat other leg. Tip: I call these Sunrise Squat Kicks because I always recommend training 1st thing in the mornings before the day gets away from you.
2. Beach Babe Booty Lifts
Hit the floor and use gravity to your advantage! Hold a weight in your right hand, resting gently on your right hip. Press your left foot firmly into the floor, raise your right leg straight over your hip, abs / core super tight and flexed. Exhale as you push through your left heel and raise your right leg up toward the blue sky. Hold a beat. Return to starting position. Repeat 15 times each leg. 3 sets.
3. Kiana Clam Diggers
Like regular clam digger exercises but more challenging. Starting position: Lie on your right side, wrap a resistance band around your upper legs, feet together. Hold a weight in your left hand, forearm parallel to the floor, elbow into your waist. Tighten your core. The move: Exhale as you simultaneously open your knees / legs (keeping your feet together) and rotate your left arm open (keeping your elbow into your waist.) Return to starting position. Repeat 15 times each leg, 3 sets.
