One of the best things that the Internet and social media have contributed to the world is the widespread dissemination of all sorts of information. How many links do we see on our Twitter or Facebook accounts about our topics of interest? From Hollywood news to the latest goings-on in politics to the most recent fashion trends, we receive all this data at real-time with just the tap of our fingers.
Perhaps the most helpful information that’s been passed on is about improving our health and well-being. The healthiest food to consume, the best kind of exercises to do for cardio, toning, losing weight, the list goes on and on. And the great thing about this is that people are more conscious about looking and feeling good. And with the multitude of healthy recipes and forms of exercise out there, trimming down and staying fit has never been this healthy.
In terms of exercising, many will agree that aside from the tummy and the thighs, the most challenging body part to keep toned is the derriere. And here are some of our most recommended exercises for getting an amazingly-shaped butt.
13 Single-Leg Front Raises
Front raises are best done if you want to maintain balance on one leg and give those thighs a good stretch. Of course, it also ensures your derriere muscles are tightened well and good, so really, it’s a three-in-one deal!
12 Jumping Squats
Squats are always a sure and easy way to tone that butt. When you add a jump, the muscles are further worked out and formed more effectively. Aside from working those muscles, this exercise also serves as a cardio builder.
There’s nothing like a good-old classic ballet move that can help tone your butt muscles. The plie is such a basic and easy move and it gives you the muscle workout you want for your behind.
10 Explosive Lunges
No, this exercise will not leave you panting like crazy and it’s by no means a cardio workout. But yes, it does involve some hard-core lunging. It helps stretch the glutes and ensures you maintain a good balance.
9 Swiss-Ball Hip Raise and Leg Curl
This position requires an exercise ball or a Swiss-ball, as it’s also known. This one requires you to lie face-up while the ball goes under your legs.
8 Dumbbell Deadlift
If you’ve got dumbbells lying about the house, this is the perfect opportunity to put them to good use. Of course, their weight has to be proportional to your own.
This exercise puts you in a fetal position, hence the title Clamshell.
Barre is one of the latest exercise crazes right now. The All-Fours is derived from this ballet-type work-out and has proven most effective for enhancing the butt muscles.
5 Plank Leg-Lifts
Planking was another trend and is a position often used in yoga practices. The position can be used for butt exercises as well, but with the use of an exercise ball. Like in yoga, this work-out helps keep balance and strengthens your core, while working out those butt muscles.
4 Squat with Kick-Back
Squats are difficult enough to do, but what say you rise to the challenge and throw in a kick-back with those squats? This routine won’t only work out your butt, it’ll give you killer quads as well.
3 Warrior 3
Yet another yoga pose can give your butt an enhancement. In the Warrior 3 pose, the glute muscles get worked out when you lift that leg up and hold it in place so that it stays parallel to the floor.
Yes, a superhero pose is very apt for getting that super bum! Since you can’t fly, you’ll have to make do with a flying-like position from the floor.
1 Sun Salutations
If you’re familiar with yoga poses, you’ll know that the Downward Facing-Dog is the pose used to stretch and rest those muscles after a particularly grueling sequence of positions. The Sun Salutations workout sequence is the most effective way to cool down after those butt exercises.
