The truth is, every woman wants to have a finely shaped buttock; however, not everyone knows the right methods to achieve this. A lot of people think that squats are the best exercise for a toned butt, but, the truth is that there are many other exercises that are far more powerful and beneficial than squats. So, if you’re tired of squats or if you’re not satisfied with the results from this exercise, take a look at the following exercises:
Single leg glute bridge
Lie on the back, bend the knees, and put the feet close to the buttock. One leg should be straightened and then you need to squeeze the glutes and lift the hips and buttock off the floor. Lower the buttock until it hovers over the floor and repeat the movement once more with the other leg and make sure not to touch the ground.
Hydrant with leg extension
Begin with the hands and knees on the floor and then lift one leg, still bent, toward the ceiling. Straighten it and then pause. Bend the knee and go back to primary position. Repeat the same movement for 60 seconds and then do the same with the other leg.
Put the both the legs and arms on the floor. Hold the core tight and lift one leg up behind you and cross it over the leg still on the floor. Let the foot down and tap with it on the ground, lift back up to the primary position, and lower it to tap the ground once more. Repeat it for 60 seconds before you switch legs.
Stand with the feet hip-width apart and the hands on the hips. Then, lift one leg out to the side and then cross it behind you and bend the other knee so that the knee of the extended leg touches the ground. The knee needs to be straightened and the leg lifted back out to the side. Do the exercise for a minute and then switch sides.
Heel lifted squat
With the feet hip-width apart and one heel lifted, keep the core tight and control the movements. Push the hips back and lower the buttock toward the floor. Don’t extend the standing knee over the toes and press into your heel and go back to the primary position. Repeat it for 60 seconds before you do the same with the other heel.
Bear plank leg lifts
Start in plank position with the knees bent slightly. Next, bend one knee to a 90-degree angle, flex the foot, and kick the leg towards the ceiling as high as you can. Then, make a break and lower the leg. Repeat this for one minute before you do the same with the other leg.
Single leg dead lift
With the feet hip-width apart and the right foot a couple of inches in front of your left, slightly bent the left knee and tighten the core and fold forward slowly, with the left foot in line with the spine. Next, touch the floor with both hands and then go back to standing. Repeat it for one minute before you switch sides.
Sumo squats to calf raise
With the feet twice hip-width apart and the hands on the hips and the toes pointed outward, hold the core tight and lower the hips until the thighs are parallel to the ground. Next, raise both heels off the floor. Lower the heels and raise the hips back up. Repeat it.
Squat to sumo
Stand with the feet hip-width apart while your hands are on your hips and your toes forward. Keep the core tightened and sink back into a squat. Press into the heels and pulse as you turn the toes and knees outward to a 45-degree angle and then go back to primary position.
Follow this beneficial routine if you want to bring your buttock into shape and make it look amazing. Good luck!
