Having a toned butt is likely at the top of your fitness goals list, but getting it is another story. We have all been there – after doing cardio or an intense workout, it’s tempting to just throw in the towel and forget about whether or not your booty and thighs got enough attention.
But these three effective exercises are all about the tush and thighs, and you can do them anytime, anywhere. Do this workout when you’re watching TV, winding down for the night, or on the floor next to your bed when you get up, and you’ll be on your way to whipping your glutes into shape without a ton of extra effort. Trust us, any lazy girl can do these simple but supereffective moves.
Workout details: Perform one set of the prescribed number of reps for each exercise without resting in-between, and then repeat the entire circuit one more time.
1. Side Step Shuffle
How to do it: Stand with feet together and hands clasped in front of your chest. Push off left foot and hop to the right, landing with weight on right foot. Immediately repeat in opposite direction. Continue, quickly hopping from side to side for 1–2 minutes total.
2. Kettlebell Squat
How to do it: Stand with feet wide, toes pointing forward, and hold a heavy kettlebell (or dumbbell) in front of hips with palms facing toward you. Keeping your chest lifted, squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Pause, and then rise up to standing and repeat. Do 20–25 reps.
3. Single Leg Bridge
How To Do It: Lie faceup with knees bent and feet flat on the ground, arms extended at sides. Raise right leg straight up, foot flexed. Keeping right leg raised, lift hips until body is aligned from left knee to shoulders. Lower hips until they nearly touch the ground, then repeat. Do 20–25 reps, then switch sides to complete set.
