So, no more excuses that you’re tired or don’t know what to do; this article has all you need. The only way to get the glutes you want is through dedicated training and a clean diet!

Here are 6 exercises you should do to whip your butt into shape - literally! They can be done anywhere. Add weight to the routines and you’ll see and feel FASTER results! Always warm up 5-7 minutes before weight-training. You can warm up with some light jogging, jumping jacks, high knees and butt kickers.

  • Squats - Keep your weight on your heels and squeeze your glutes at the top. Keep your back straight and do not let you knees go over your toes while squatting.

  • Squat with Leg Lift - Begin in a squat position. As you’re coming out of the squat, lift one leg to the side. Keep your body straight when kicking your leg up. Use your core to stay straight.

  • Plié Squats - Standing upright with your feet slightly further than shoulder-width, point your feet out to a 45°angle. Squat down slowly, and squeeze your glutes on the way up.

  • Walking Lunges - Make sure your knees do not go over your toes when lunging. Keep your back straight and perform this exercise with total control.

  • Hip Extensions - When extending your hip, pause for 2 seconds at the top and squeeze!

  • Single-leg Glute Lifts - Begin by laying flat on the floor with one foot on the floor, and the other straight in the air. Lift your glutes straight up and keep the weight in your heel. Pause at the top and squeeze!
