Fitness First: 5 Quick Ways To Tone Your Butt
Your derrière might be causing you disconsolation. Worry not, we have a few easy fixes. We’ve made new year’s resolutions that we need to stick to, and getting fit and healthy isn’t something the tooth fairy leaves under your pillow. Call them home remedies for that bodacious booty you desire. A little effort, dedication and willpower is all it takes to get on the right track. Try out these 5 exercises every alternate day – 2 sets of about 12-15 repetitions. Watch out JLo!
Marching Hip Raises:
Lie face up on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. (A) Lift one knee to your chest (B), lower back to the start, and lift your other knee to your chest. Continue to alternate back and forth.
Single Leg Hip Raise:
Lie face up on the floor with your left knee bent and your right leg straight. Raise your right leg until it’s in line with your left thigh. (A) Push your hips upward, keeping your right leg elevated. (B) Pause, and then slowly lower your body and leg back to the start position. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions with your left leg, then switch and do the same number with your right leg
Swissball Hip Raise & Leg Curl:
Lie face up on the floor and place your lower legs and heels on a Swiss ball. (A) Push your hips up so that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. (B) Without pausing, pull your heels toward you and roll the ball as close as possible to your butt. (C) Pause for 1 or 2 seconds, and then reverse the motion, by rolling the ball back until your body is in a straight line. Lower your hips back to the floor.
Single Leg Deadlift:
Lift your right foot behind you and bend your knee so your right leg is parallel to the floor. (A) Bend forward at your hips, and slowly lower your body as far as you can, or until you’re right lower leg almost touches the floor. (B) Pause, and then push your body back to the starting position. If this exercise is too difficult, let the toes of your shoe rest on the floor for balance instead of raising the foot of your non-working leg.
Lie on your left side on the floor, with your hips and knees bent 45 degrees. Your right leg should be on top of your left leg, your heels together. (A) Keeping your feet in contact with each other, raise your right knee as high as you can without moving your pelvis. (B) Pause, then return to the starting position. Don’t allow your left leg to move off the floor.
