Getting our butts to the perkiest, plumpest version of themselves is something we can definitely—ahem—get behind.
When it comes to booty workouts, our motto is KISS (keep it simple, silly). Getting a perkier posterior doesn’t require fancy equipment. In fact, it can be done from home with the help of three underrated but key moves. (Ofc, consistency is also key. Such is life.)
Ready to work your jelly?
Here are 3 moves to add into your fitness routine. We’ve broken down how to do each one and included a video of each move for all you visual learners.
How to: Lie down on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground, hip width apart. Squeeze your glutes and lift your hips, making sure to really engage them at the top. Slower lower down until your butt hovers over the floor, but doesn’t touch it. Repeat for 15 to 20 reps.
2. Standing single leg deadlift
How to: Start in a standing position with your feet hip width apart and parallel to each other. Hinge from your hips and lift your left leg off the floor behind you as your torso leans forward, parallel to the floor. Make sure to engage your glutes while keeping a slight bend in your right leg. Bring your hips back to a standing position. Do 20 reps on this side, and then repeat on the other side. For an added challenge, try adding a weight.
3. Fire hydrant with leg extension
How to: Start on your hands and knees, making sure your palms are directly under your shoulders and your knees are under your hips. Engage your core and lift one leg up (it should look like, well, a dog peeing on a fire hydrant). Don’t go higher than a 90-degree angle. At the top, pause, and then extend your leg behind you. Bring it back to the top of your fire hydrant position, and then lower back down to the ground. Perform two sets of 20 reps per leg. To make it more challenging, add a resistance band.
