Are squats your go-to booty-shaping move? While they certainly tone your glutes from every angle, there are other moves that will tighten your tush. Switch up your routine and feel the burn with our fave moves:
Wall Sit: Press your back against the wall with your feet shoulder-width apart and two feet from the wall. Slowly slide down until your knees are at a 90-degree angle. Hold for 45 seconds.
Side Lunge: Stand with your feet and knees together. Take a step with your left foot to the left side and lunge. Push off through your left foot and return to start. Repeat on your right side. Do not extend your knee past your toes. Do 50 reps on each side.
Glute Bridge: Lie on your back with knees bent, feet flat on the floor and hip-width apart. Raise your hips to lift your glutes off the ground. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Hold this position for 5 seconds and return to start. Repeat as many times for 45 seconds.
Sumo Squat: Stand with feet wider than your hips, turn toes out slightly, and hold a free weight or medicine ball in front of your chest. Squat as low as you can go and press back up to standing. Keep your heels on the ground and your back straight. Do 75 reps.
Donkey Kicks: You’ll need a mat for this move. Begin on all fours, hands under shoulders and knees under hips. Keep your left knee bent 90 degrees and lift your knee to hip level. Lower your knee and lift again, don’t let your knee touch the floor. Do 50 reps and switch legs.
Single-Leg Glute Bridge: Lie on your back with knees bent, feet flat on the floor and hip-width apart. Extend one leg, be sure to keep knees in line, begin to squeeze your tush as you lift your hips toward the ceiling. Hold, then lower hips, but don’t touch the ground. You will lift and lower as many times as possible for the next 45 seconds. Bring your foot down to the floor, catch your breath and switch legs.
Curtsy Lunges: Stand with hands on hips and feet shoulder-width apart. Cross your left leg behind you and step backward as you lower your knees toward the floor until your knees are bent at 90 degrees. Keep your hips square, draw in your abs and keep your back straight. Do 50 reps on each side, yes, you’ll feel the burn!
