Most of you probably don’t know that I work out 5-6 days a week. I will post the occasional Snapchat or Insta Story while in the gym, but I don’t talk about it often. I think this is probably because I don’t claim to be an expert in this field–and who wants to see me all sweaty in the gym?? No one.
But as an important part of my life, so I wanted to share with you some of the exercises that I love doing to keep my butt looking good! My main concern is my lower body, so that is what I like to focus on. I am considered thin, but if I don’t exercise regularly and eat properly, I start gaining weight in my thighs, butt, and stomach!
I won’t talk about what I eat in this post, but I am a firm believer that food has even more to do with losing weight than exercising. I also don’t believe restricting everything you eat is the answer either. During the week I try not to eat out at restaurants or drink alcohol, but on weekends I do let myself indulge! Balance is key! 🙂
Disclaimer: I am not trained in any sort of physical training or exercise education. This is purely what I know and have been taught by others. I will link videos so you can watch the exercise as well!
My Top 5 Booty Exercises
Yes, squats suck. But they work!! I was not doing squats for a while because I had a lower back issue, but once I was able to do them again, I noticed a HUGE difference in my booty–I am a firm believer in them! 😛 I do at least 3 sets of 15 every day! Video here.
Most of the time I do standing lunges. Make sure you watch the video to learn how to properly do them, otherwise it can be hard on your joints. Video here.
3.Side Leg Lifts
I love this exersise because I’m pretty much laying down–nice little break! 😛 I do 3 sets of 10 on each side. Video here.
4. Hamstring Curl with Stability Ball
You will really feel the burn on your hamstrings, and this helps work on your core since it should be engaged while performing this exercise! I do 3 sets of 10. Video here.
My husband showed me this exercise and it is on of my favourites. It does require a machine, but it works your glutes and hamstrings to lift your butt! I use 2.5 or 5lb setting and do 3 sets of 10. Video here.
Always Stretch After you Workout!
Stretching is super important to help increase range of motion and reduce muscle fatigue. As you work out, lactic acid build up in your muscles and can cause soreness and muscle fatigue. Stretching will help combat this! Here are a few to try!
