A 5-Minute Workout to Work Your Butt Off

By , SparkPeople Blogger
What does it really take to have a great butt besides good genes and, well, good jeans? For those of us who weren't born looking like supermodels, it takes a little work (the sweating kind, not the surgical kind).

To help you reshape your rear, I created a simple plan that takes just five minutes per day. If you're thinking, "Hey, I thought there was no such thing as 'spot' training," don't worry. It's true that using specific muscles won't help you trim that area of your body. That's why this plan combines fat-burning Tabata cardio intervals with targeted toning moves for your glutes. Along with your healthy, calorie-controlled diet from SparkPeople.com, you're sure to see results in how your jeans fit and how your body looks. Are you ready to try it?


Will you try this plan? What is your all-time favorite butt sculptor?

I'm doing 5 of the 7 exercises already, in conjunction with last November's Turkey Burner Workout. The results are there! I'll add in Saturday's reverse lunge and Sunday's leg lift for some additional exercises.
Thanks! Report
To print out the poster, just right click and choose "Copy Image". Then you can paste it into a MS Word document or into a Paint program. Then just print it out! Hope that helps. :0 Report
I do some of these already, plus pilates and yoga and lots of walking. But I will give the plan a try. I am almost 71 and most of my friends say I've got the best shaped butt they have seen on a women my age and who lost 200 lbs.
I credit it to good genes and the exercises I do everyday. And I still like to look good in jeans. Report
LOVE This! Would be good to have it as a printable document to hang on my wall at home. Report
Is there an alternative exercise to Friday's if you don't have a stability ball? Report
Of all the weight/shape problems I have, the butt is definitely not one of them. Was literally born with a "shapely" butt. My only problem is that it continues to get bigger. :) Report
