Who doesn’t want a butt like Kim Kardashian’s? Hell, we all do!! It’s toned and perfectly shaped and sculpted.
Now, now - you know nothing in life comes for free. Well, technically. You still have to put in a little bit of hard work. So, here are a few perfect butt exercises to help you get on your way to that Kim K butt!
1. Lunge Away The Extra Fat
Yes, that’s right. Front lunges is one of the most effective ways to achieve that butt you’ve always wanted! Start by standing straight, with both legs together and hands on your hip. Now, take a big step ahead with one leg, bending at the knee. Make sure your knee is at a 90 degree angle and your thigh is parallel to the ground. Step back into the original position. Repeat this 10-15 times on each leg and put in as many sets as you can manage! If you want to make it slightly tougher and burn a few extra calories, hold some weights (2 or 3 kgs) in your hands while doing your lunges.
2. Get In Shape With Some Glorious Squats
Want your butt to be in perfect shape? Nothing can get you closer to your target than some squatting! Get in starting position by simply standing with your feet shoulder-width apart. You can put your arms out front or place your hands behind your head. Now squat (bend your legs at your knees and lower and push your butt behind). Make sure you don’t let your knees go ahead of your toes at any point, and that your back is not arched. When you come up, keep your knees slightly bent and don’t stand up straight. Repeat this 15-20 times and do as many sets as possible.
3. Try A Different Variation Of Squats
Start by doing your regular squats (as explained above), but be ready for a little bit of extra work. After you come back up after your squat, lift your leg up directly towards the side as high as you can. Bring it back down and squat again. Do 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions on each leg.
4. KICK Some Ass
Kick your way to your dream butt! Start by either pulling a chair or standing by a wall for support. If you’re using the chair, hold onto the back of the chair and raise your leg backward. Bring it back down slowly. Repeat this 20-25 times on each leg. Do make sure that you don’t jerk your leg up and don’t bring it too fast down. Make sure your movements are smooth, else you could reduce the effect of the exercise!
If you want to amp your exercise a bit, try bending forward, leaning and taking support on a wall and then lifting your leg straight up and slowly bringing it down.
5. And KICK Some More Ass
Only this time, on on all fours! Make sure that your hands and feet are shoulder-width apart. Now, slowly kick one leg back and make sure you extend and lift it as far back and up as possible. Simply move your leg up and down while extended backward.
Another variation - once your leg is behind, slowly bend and bring it back as close to your chest as possible. Repeat this 10 times and do about 3 sets on each leg.
6. Lift Your Hip Into Perfect Shape
Literally! Pull out an exercise mat and start this one by lying flat on your back. Bend your knees and place your feet flat down on the floor. Now, slowly lift your hip region up towards the ceiling, keeping your head, arms and feet on the floor. Make sure not to arch your back as this could strain your spine. Squeeze your glutes while raising your hip and bring it slowly back down. Try and do 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions each.MUST-READ: Love Your Waist?
