Butt exercises are one of my favorites to do, but I never know where to start. Luckily, our instructors take the time to give a little more focus on glutes in our workouts! I’ve narrowed down 4 butt lifting exercises that are easy to do at home or on the go.
Why Exercise Your Glutes
Most of the time, we’re told to work on our core, arm strength and legs so we forget about our glute muscles.
It’s important to strengthen our glutes because it does hold our pelvis steady when we’re active. All that hip rotating and hip action would not be possible without our glute muscles. And a strong booty has its benefits like beating lower back pain and preventing knee pain. Plus, we’re making toning fun with fierce dance workouts from our amazing instructors. Who says a toned and strong booty is just for show??

1. Mid Stance Squats
In our twerk dance workout, Nicole shows you a very simple move that helps build up your booty muscles. You can do this anytime you want, waiting for your fave show to come back from commercial, in the shower or while brushing your teeth! This is a mid squat so you don’t have to squat all the way down plus pulses which makes the booty ???!
2. Calf Raises With A Sumo Squat
This is a fave move of mine and not only because it has the word Sumo in it, but because it’s so fun and works your calves and butt all together! Calf raises are generally really good for your calves, but it also helps tone the booty. This butt lifting exercise from our Strong and Sexy cardio workout class is easy to do and you can do it in a pace you’re comfortable with. Start off in a sumo squat (if you have sensitive knees, stay high) and try not to move your booty as you lift your heel and feel your muscles work.
3. Leg Lift
This move is one of those moves that look really harmless, but inflicts the most burn on that tush. You go on all fours and lift that leg and squeeze that butt! This, no doubt, is a very fun move and believe me after about 10 of these, you’ll start to feel it everywhere. This booty exercise not only shapes your glutes, but it also works on your arm strength and your hamstrings. Now don’t forget about the other leg, babe!
4. High Squat Steps
For this high squat steps move, I love to use fitness bands. You can start off without, but it definitely works best with those booty bands. I think what I love about this move is the simplicity of it. It’s just a step touch move with a little baby squat for the booty, but it works so magically. You feel it working instantaneously and boy, does it burn. Your tush will say thanks for the lift, ma!
