Every girl always wants her butt and legs to look good. Guys do too, but they are often more concerned with developing upper body muscles. Important: You should always workout your entire body. Not everyone has time to go to the gym to sculpt there body, which is why we have this awesome 5-minute butt and leg workout. You should do each exercise for 1 minute and then rest for 30 seconds. Are you ready? Let’s get to it!
Exercise #1: Squats
Make sure your feet are a little wider than shoulder-width and get going once you’re ready. When you squat, keep your back straight, eyes forward, and make sure your knees don’t go in front of your toes. You should feel like you are sitting down in a chair. Squeeze your gluteus muscles and thighs when you sink into these. Do as many squats as you can do in one minute and then rest.
Exercise #2: Donkey Kicks
You can do these one of two ways. If you want a better workout for your core, stay in plank position and kick your leg up. You can also put your knee on the ground and kick back with the other leg. When you kick back, squeeze you butt. Don’t just raise your leg. When you hit 30 seconds, alternate to the other leg. Keep going until the end. If you need to rest, you can, but make sure you pause your stopwatch and get right back in it when you resume. Try not to rest until after the minute is over, though.
Exercise #3: Hip Raises
Lay on your yoga mat and extend your fingertips towards your heels, which should be by your butt. Engaging your butt muscles, raise your hips towards the ceiling. Lower yourself slowly and raise yourself up again. If you want more of a challenge, hold your hips up for 5 seconds each time you raise your hips. You’ll definitely feel the burn.
Exercise #4: Plank Leg Raises
These are definitely challenging. Get in a plank position (you can put one knee on the ground if necessary), and lift your leg up towards the ceiling. Keep your leg straight. You don’t want to strain your back so only lift it as high as you can comfortably. You should feel this in your glutes and hamstrings. After 30 seconds, alternate to the other leg. Push it out until the very end.
Exercise #5: Lunges
It’s time to finish this workout strong! Lunge forward with one leg at a time. Try to keep your knee straight ahead. You don’t want to rush these because you can easily hurt yourself. Go slow and really feel that burn in your thighs and glutes. If you want more of a challenge, you can do these holding weights in both hands.
We recommend doing this workout twice a day to really tone your butt. If you’re up to it, repeat the circuit again.
