Let’s face it, everyone wants to have a nice butt. Not only does it look good, having a strong lower body can help you in everything from sports to simple tasks in day to day life. Problem is, a lot of people neglect working out their legs and butt due to the common soreness that occurs after. That is not a good idea as working out legs is just as important and everything else. Here are three great exercises to get that booty and legs into summer shape.
1. Kick Backs
While these ones may take up a bit of room in the gym or at home and require you to have some free space, they are definitely useful. These are most common with the cable machines in the gym and the ankle wrap attachment. With these exercises you basically attach some weight to your ankle and kick your leg back up, minding the technique and process so you don’t hurt yourself. Even after only a few reps you will definitely feel this in your glutes.
2. Reverse Lunges
These are in the same vein as the popular Squat, but target different muscles and provide different benefits. Seeing as these target one side of the body at a time, you can feel the weight more on each rep than with the squat. While the workout may take longer as you would have to account for both legs, quads and glutes, this is definitely a worth inclusion in any booty boosting workout. These can be done simply with bodyweight, with dumbbells or even in the squat rack.
Now we have finally gotten to the king of the lower body, leg and butt exercises, the squat. This should be an absolute staple of each and very leg workout you have as it allows you to work almost the entire lower body in one smooth motion. Again, this can be done weighted or bodyweight and either way, you will feel the burn within the first few reps. When it comes to squatting, make sure proper form and technique are applied to prevent the possibility of injuries occurring.
