Gardening LIFTS THE TUSH
Spending a day tending to your garden is a great way to get a perky, sculpted backside. That’s because squatting to plant seeds and water flowers activates the calorie-hungry hamstrings and gluteus maximus.
These muscles work double-duty to shape and lift the rear.
TO TONE EVEN FASTER: “Draw your belly button in and squeeze your shoulder blades together as you’re planting,” says May. This helps take strain off the spine to eliminate nextday back pain, plus activates the rectus abdominis to melt a menopot.
