Workout Wednesdays: Working the Glutes

Ahh, summer: a time for shorts, skirts and swimsuits. But what to do about that gluteus maximus?!

Don’t fret just yet. Try some of these:

Butt Raises: Lie on your back. Form a 90-degree angle with your calves by bringing your feet towards your butt. Raise your pelvis and butt until your thighs form a straight line. Hold this position for 20 seconds. Repeat for 20 repetitions.

Side Kicks: Stand with your feet approximately 2-feet apart. Bend and lift one knee while balancing on the opposite leg. Extend the bended knee sideways, kicking out from the waist. Repeat for 3 sets of 8. Then alternate legs.

Back Kicks: Stand with your feet approximately 2-feet apart. Bend and lift one knee while balancing on the opposite leg. Extend the bended knee backwards, kicking out from the waist. Repeat for 3 sets of 8. Then alternate legs.

Squats: In a standing position, part your legs approximately two feet at the heels. Your hands should be on your waist. Bend your knee and lower your body at the hips until your thighs are horizontal then raise your body back to its starting position. Repeat for two sets of 20.
