Loving the body that we have been given can be a challenge, especially when all around us are images of Jennifer Lopez’s bodacious booty. Well no need to feel butt envy because if a tight, toned, tush is your ultimate goal then here is the workout for you. Natalie Jill creator of the Rev-4 10 minute body weight workout DVD designed this routine that will have you loving your fanny in no time.
Stability Ball Hamstring Curls
These address the “butt-thigh” which is that area between your glutes and your hamstrings. Although you can’t spot reduce that area, you can work to develop the muscles in your glutes and hamstrings which will help to dramatically change the appearance of this area.
Lie down on your back, and place your legs up on a stability ball. Using your hamstrings, slowly curl your heels back dragging the ball under your butt while lifting up into a bridge. Squeeze your butt muscles as you do this and keep your core and abdominal tight! Roll back and forth twenty times.
This really hits your glute and hamstring so stretch well upon completion.
Get on your forearms and knees; kick active leg up with your foot flat as if you are lifting up the ceiling. Create resistance by focusing on the muscles being worked. Do 20 reps per side.
Squat to Side Kick:
Yes this can give you that sexy indentation on the side of your but plus your outer thigh will thank you.
Starting in a slight squatted position, go as low as is comfortable and then stand up lifting one leg out to the side. Complete 15 reps per leg.
Wouldn't want to have a firm derriere without nice thighs, would you? No worries you won’t. This move makes your quad seem almost Spartan.
With your back firmly against the wall, your abs and core tight, squat down and hold for a count of 30 seconds. Return to starting position and repeat 5 times.
