A 5-Minute Routine To Strengthen Your Butt & Thighs
The past 10 years have proven to society that a small butt is no longer in style. Keep your booty tight while enhancing your physique with a few moves that will ensure your waist stays small and your butt looks better than ever. Statistics prove that only 15 minutes of exercise per day can extend your life for up to three years; only five minutes could add at least one year.
1. Butt Enhancer
Lay down on a yoga mat or carpet, face down. Place your arms straight out before bending your elbows at a 45-degree angle. Your legs should be a little wider than hip distance apart. Raise your legs and your torso off the ground. Your hands should raise off the ground too, so you are using only your butt and your abs to raise your hands, arms, legs and torso off the ground. Hold for 10 seconds. Lower and repeat 10 times.
2. Kneeling Hydrant with Back Kick
Get into position on your hands and knees. Your eyes should face the ground, your neck elongated and your hands and knees shoulder and hip distance apart. Move your left knee to the side until your thigh is perpendicular to the ground. Your left foot should be flexed. Rotate your hip until you are almost in starting position, but instead of placing your knee on the ground, kick it straight back in the air. Repeat five times on each side.
3. Walking Mountain Climbers
Lay face down on a yoga mat or carpet. Do one push up so you raise your body into plank position. With your arms shoulder-width apart and your legs hip-width apart, pick your left foot up, bend your leg at the knee and place it in front of you, bending your leg into a modified squat. Return your left leg to the start position, and repeat the motion with the right leg. Keep moving your legs back and forth until for about one minute. Keep your abs and butt as tight as possible throughout this exercise—and don’t forget to breathe!
4. Get Your Butt in Gear
Start on your hands and knees. Keep your arms shoulder-width apart and your knees hip-width apart. Elongate your neck, and raise your head to look straight out in front of you. Extend your left leg straight back, and bend your knee. Flex your ankle so when you bend your knee at a 45-degree angle, the heel of your foot faces the ceiling. Push the heel of your foot as far as you can toward the ceiling. Keep your abs tight and your butt tight. Return to the starting position, and repeat this motion using the right leg and foot. Do five reps of each on each side.
Repeat these moves once a day to give your butt a tight but enhanced look. After a few weeks, you’ll have a physique that anyone would covet.
