9 Butt Moves That Beat Squats

While it’s true that squats can work your glutes from every angle, they get pretty boring after, oh, a second. It’s why you really can’t sustain a tight tush on squats alone. Besides, there are plenty of variations which, when performed together, could put the basic squat out of business. (You’re welcome.)

To work towards a butt like Brittany’s, repeat each exercise below for 45 seconds to one minute on each side in the order listed, and repeat the entire set up to three times to seriously feel the burn.

Sumo Squats

Stand with your feet approximately 24 to 36 inches apart. Position your feet wider than your hips with your toes and knees facing forward. Keep your head up and your spine lengthened so there is no curve in your back. Place your arms at your sides or bring your hands in front of your chest to assist with balance. Inhale, bend your knees and lower your hips behind you to a comfortable depth or until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Prevent your knees from moving forward beyond your toes.

Fire Hydrants

Get down on the mat on all fours. Hands should be directly below the shoulders and knees below the hips. Lift your right leg out to the side. Lift the leg as high as you can without rotating your hips, or leaning to the left side

Curtsy Lunges-Leg lift

Start by standing, hold the medicine ball at your chest and step your left leg behind you and to the right so your thighs cross, bending both knees as if you were curtsying. Make sure your front knee is aligned with your front ankle. Go back to the starting position and perform a Leg lift. Perform 50 Reps on each side.

How much exercise is enough to lose weight?

The best time for training is around 45 to 60 minutes, but this changes from person to person and depending on how much weight you would like to lose.

Whenever you would like to lose weight, shoot for at least 200 minutes (more 3 hours) a week by moderate intensity workout with everything additional consistent. If you burn calories and exercise, you’ll be able to get away with a minimum dose of 150 minutes a week.

Whenever you are a beginner, start with 50 minutes of exercise a week and build to 200 minutes.
