7 Great Butt Lifting Exercises
There are many women who would love to get a butt-lift. Who wouldn’t love to have a wonderful figure after all? But you can get the right shape with hard work. Here is a list of exercises that will without a doubt help lift your butt and tone it well.
1. Hip lift progression
Lie on your back, bend your knees with your feet flat on the ground and gently lift your hips upwards. Hold it in this position and then lower your back again. While not stressing your spine, try to repeat this while squeezing your glutes as well. Another step is to extend the leg to put further pressure on yourself. Repeat this exercise a few times with both sides.
This is one of the least complicated exercises that you can perform to strengthen your lower back. There are normal squats, Bulgarian squats and pistol squats. When you are performing your normal squat, you have to bend the legs at the knees and hips, bringing down your whole torso and holding yourself in that position. Tighten the buttocks when you stand straight. To make squats difficult you can perform these with weights in your hand. In the pistol squat, you are pushing yourself further by trying to perform squat with just one leg, holding the other leg straight out in front of you. Bulgarian squats involve having your non-functional leg rest backwards on a bench while you perform the squat.
3. Toe taps
Lie on your back and lift your legs in such a way that your thighs are perpendicular to the ground. Then bend your leg from knee downwards and tap your toes, one at a time. This motion almost mimics the cycling act except that the toe tapping act is performed keeping your thighs perfectly straight and steady.
4. Climbing stairs or hills
Climbing stairs or doing step-ups on them is a good way of tightening the butt. It is also a good cardiovascular exercise. Alternatively, you can even climb up a hill. The act of climbing helps in tightening and stretching out the muscles in your butt, ensuring that they get firmer. This is a great excuse to stop using the elevator.
