Use These Exercises To Get The Perfect DerriereSquats : These butt exercises are of course used in any discipline but they are always effective. Squats not only work your butt but also your thighs and legs.
This Pilates version of a squat can be done with a large exercise ball. Find an open space on your wall and lean your ball against it and place it in the middle of your back, arms outstretched in front of you. Slowly bend your knees into a squat so your knees are at a 90 degree angle. Hold for three breaths, then straighten your knees and return to your starting position.
Raise the top leg to hip height and swing it in front of you without pitching your body back. Now swing it to the back, again trying to keep your body stable. This should be done in one smooth motion to work you butt, abs (for stability) and outer thighs. You can reinforce this exercise by adding ankle weights.
Start with 5 - 10 reps then increase as necessary.Standing Lunge : This is another classic exercise to include in your butt toning exercises that gets the job done. Stand tall with your hands on your hips.
Pick your right foot up and take a big step forward, landing on your right foot in a deep knee bend. (Never go lower than a 90 degree right angle with your knee) Your left knee will be close to the floor.
Hold for a breath, push off the right leg and return to your standing position. When you are doing the lunge focus more on the firmness of your body and the length in your spine, and tighten your butt as well as your core to keep the lunge as stable as possible.
Try 10 reps alternating legs to start.Shoulder Bridge : This is a prep for a classic Pilates exercise. Lay on your back with knees bent and feet placed on the mat, both arms at your sides.
Press into your feet and slowly roll your bottom and spine off the mat until your ribcage and pelvis are in the same plain. (Think one long line from your knees to your shoulders) Hold this for three breaths and then return to your starting position, exhaling as you roll your spine down.
While doing this exercise remember to keep your butt, hamstrings and core as tight as possible to achieve best results.Heel Beats : On your mat, lay on your stomach with your legs straight, hips width apart and slightly turned out. Your arms are bent and hands placed under your forehead like a pillow.
Squeeze your buns (gluteals) and lift your whole legs off the floor pressing your hips and pubic bone into the mat. Squeeze your butt and hamstring muscles and open and close the legs in a beating action.
Think of beating the inner thighs and not so much from the heels. The beat should be vigorous, quick and strong.
Try for 30 beats, lower legs and lift to repeat.
