Make your bum beach-worthy (for the sunny days ahead in October) with this 10-minute workout. Do it two-three times a week.
Get that sexy butt!
1 Touchdown (For butt and thighs) A Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and fists at your sides. Squat down as if sitting in a chair, and bend your arms until your fists are near your chin and your elbows are pointing toward the floor.
B Remaining in squat position, step back about 3 feet with your right foot. Raise your left elbow to the side and put your hand in front of your face, palm facing outward. Touch your right hand to the floor beside your left foot for support. Return to standing position and repeat with your left foot to complete the rep. Do 3 sets of 12 reps.
2 Squat Kick-Back (For butt, thighs, and shoulders) Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and arms at your sides. Squat down until your thighs are nearly parallel to the floor. Then stand, straighten your right leg, and kick your right foot behind you. At the same time, extend both arms overhead. Your body should be in a straight line from your hands to your right foot. Return to the starting position and repeat with your left leg to complete the rep. Do 3 sets of 12 reps.
3 Corkscrew (For butt) A Lie on a mat on your left side, extend your left arm above your head, and rest your head on it. Bend your knees to a 45 degree angle and put your right hand on the mat in front of you for support. Keeping your upper body still and left leg on the mat, pivot your hips and touch the mat with your right knee. B Lift your right leg until you feel your butt muscles flex, then slowly lower it back down. Complete 12 reps, then repeat on the opposite side. Do 3 sets.
4 Double Squat (For butt and thighs) Stand with feet together and arms at your sides. Squat down and put your hands on your thighs for support, lowering your hips as far as is comfortable. Be sure to keep your back straight and your weight on your heels. Step to the right with your right foot until your legs are a little wider than shoulderwidth apart. Continuing to squat, bring your right foot back to centre. Repeat with the left foot to complete the rep. Begin your next rep from the squat position. Do 3 sets of 12 reps.
