12 EXERCISES TO TONE YOUR GLUTES AND GET AN AMAZING BUTT !

Everyone likes a perfect shaped butt, especially women, but this is not an easy task and it requires advanced exercises which will shape your glutes and tone your butt.

-Step-ups

Step-ups are an amazing exercise which can activate your glutes and provide a great cardio workout at the same time. Find a platform higher than your knees, or start on a lower platform first until you’re comfortable. Step on it with one foot and raise your body up, then bring the other knee as high as you can before stepping down. If you want to make the exercise more challenging, take small weights in your hands.

-Rear leg lifts

Kneel on your forearms and knees, then lift one leg off the floor and push the foot towards the ceiling. Now, bring the leg down and continue with the other one. Adding some ankle weights will make the exercise tougher.

-Bridges

This exercise can really work your glutes! Lie on your back with your feet on the floor and knees pointed upwards, then raise your butt until your feet, shoulders and head are touching the floor. Push your hips as high as you can and squeeze your glutes while you’re on top of the move. This exercise is easy to learn, so when it becomes too easy straighten one leg and push off one leg at a time.

-Deep squats

To do a deep squat, you need to go as low as you can while keeping your back straight to activate the glutes. Your stance should be wider than shoulders, and you must keep your back straight at all times. You can make the squats more challenging by holding a weight in front of you, or doing one legged squats. Deep squats will strengthen your core and improve your flexibility as well.

-Cossack lunges

Cossack lunges are great for improving flexibility and balance, while also toning your butt. Keep your legs wider than your shoulders then shift your weight from side to side as you squat on one leg, while keeping the other straight. Once you’re at the bottom, point the toes upwards and repeat with the other leg.

-Fire hydrants

This great exercise will open up your hips, improve your mobility and strengthen your glutes. Start by kneeling and raise one leg to the side while keeping a 90-degree angle with your knee. To make fire hydrants more challenging, rotate from the hip and make small circles in the start followed by wide swooping circles later.
