2 Must-Do Moves for a Better Butt

By , SparkPeople Blogger
It's the pre-season for bathing suit season and that has a lot of people focusing on firming up those trouble areas that are going to get a little more exposure when they're wearing a little less clothing. I'm not immune to the pressures of looking bathing-suit-ready myself! I often tend to ramp up my workout routines if I know I'm going to be hitting the beach or hoping to spend a little more time poolside.
As you know, it's a combination of fat-burning cardio and muscle-toning strengthening that'll help you firm up and slim down (along with a healthy diet of course), but when it comes to those strengthening moves you try, some are definitely better than others.
So if you hope to improve your rear view this summer, do you know which moves are going to do the job best of all? Watch this short video to find out the best exercises you can do for your butt!

Don't you just love that two of the best exercises you can do to tone up from the bottom up are also effective at strengthening your entire lower body, and don't require any equipment at all?
Discover two more moves you should be doing for a stronger derriere, and be sure to check out my fun and effective workout plan "5 Minutes a Day to a Better Butt," which combines these great exercises along with fat-burning Tabata intervals, while you're at it.

Thanks! Report
Absolutely great Report
I love the video. I have a love-hate, wish-I-didn’t-have-to relationship with lunges. I try to avoid them at every possible moment. But, I’m willing to give them another go if they will firm my bum. I’m really sure they will work wonders for my legs as well. The second exercise is very old-school and I’ve known about it since I was a little girl. I use to watch my grandmother do them. She would always say, “Tina (because she wasn’t good at pronouncing my name) these are the exercises you should always remember.” I know now why they were so important. Report
Please add the second exercise to the strength training options. Thanks! Report
thanks for the video, and i love that these are short exercises, not sixty minute workouts. i see no contradictions here; muscles that are not used atrophy Report
DACLARK: nowhere in this article does it say this is spot reducing. You're looking for something that just isn't there. Report
I can't find the second one in the fitness tracker for strength training exercises. What is it called? I'm going to do it tonight and want to get the points, too. Oh well.. I hope you'll add it in there soon! Report
The old tried and true. Been doing both of those exercises for years. Report
I hate lunges, but I know they work. Thanks for the tips. Report
You have to lose weight overall if you want your muscles to pop, and the cardio aspect here will help with that, but you can also work on building poppable muscles as you lose weight, and the strengthening aspect here will help with that. Report
I have really bad knees just watching hurts my knees. Report
I had a good time this morning with this video!
It emphasizes....just move! Report
I was expecting deadlifts! Report
This is a useful, east to use video. My one quibble is with the verbiage - I'm just old-fashioned enough that the term "butt" seems rather crude. Whatever happened to the term "backside"? Report
What a great video- love these and this one is so helpful Report
I am new to Spark. Is there a place to journal in your diet app? It would be nice to be able to journal as you are logging in your food for the day.
I love these little videos!!! Report
