Buttox Lifting Exercises

Bubble Butt Workout for Women 6 Exercises to Tone and Lift

The first exercise is toe Pointed Jump Squats.Standing with your feet wider than shoulder width apart, toes pointed outward, lower intothe squat with your thighs parallel to the floor, keeping your knees above your toes.When you jump up, push off the balls of your feet and keep your toes pointed down. At thepeak flex your butt muscles before coming back down. You'll get the hang of it aftera few tries. Next is Front to Back Lunges. Standing straightup, feet shoulder width apart, hips and feet pointed straight ahead, step forward withone leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about 90 degrees. Make sure yourfront knee is above your ankle but not further.

Also make sure your other knee doesn't hitthe floor. Keep your weight on the heel of your front leg as you push back up to thestarting position. That counts for one rep. Keep your weight on the heel of your oppositeleg this time as you push back up to complete the second rep. Always remember, pushing offyour heels activates your glutes, or your butt muscles. Exercise number 3 is Side to Side Squats.The secret with side to side squats is coming down until your thigh is parallel to the floor,then pushing off your heel when you come up. When you come up to the middle, make sureto completely flex both glutes before lowering

down on the opposite leg. After doing a fullset in this way, you're butt muscles are going to really feel it. Next up is Reverse Lunge Knee Kicks. As youcan see, these are similar to fronttoback lunges that we did in exercise two. The onlydifference is, when you come up from the lunge, you'll be lifting your knee up. After youlunge back, make sure to push up off the heel of the leg in the forward position. When youkick your opposite knee up, completely flex the glute muscle of the leg you're standingon. That's where you're going to get the best results. And always remember to keep yourcore tight on all of these exercises. Usually

with any butt exercise you're going to bepushing off the heel. We like to call exercise five Ceiling Pushers.First, get on your hands and knees, then lower onto your elbows. Then, tighten your core,and lift one leg upward like you see Katya doing. Then lower your leg down, breathingin, until your knee tucks into your abdomen. This stretches the butt muscle before thenext repetition. The idea is to imagine pushing your heel up flat against the ceiling, completelycontracting your butt muscle at the top, while breathing out. If you want a really good burnwith this exercise, do them really slowly and pause for a 3 second count during theflex portion of the movement.

The final exercise is Bridge Kicks. Beginwith laying flat on your back, arms flat on the floor. Place one foot next to the kneeof your opposite leg. From here, keeping your core tight, lift your midsection by flexingthe butt muscle of your bent leg, while using your arms to balance yourself. Make sure tokeep your other leg straight as you raise it. Also make sure to breath out all the wayat the top of the movement. This exercise will also work your abdominals and hip flexorsas secondary muscles. The number of reps that you do for each oneof these sets is really up to you. Start with 10 reps. If it's too hard, lower the rep count.If it's not challenging enough, add more reps.

You're looking for a rep count that makesyou burn. The best results happen when you push your limits. Alright thanks for watching and subscribeto see more tutorials like this.

Glute Medius The Weakest Muscle in Your Lower Body

What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX . I'm going to show you today how to addressthe most underdeveloped, weakest muscle in your lower body, bar none. By doing so, we're going to help to improveyour big lifts. Like the squats, dead lifts, and certainlyany single leg activity because the muscle group that we're talking about here todayis the glute medius. Unless you're having a concerted effort inyour programming to train this muscle, you're

probably not doing it and you're leaving yourselfexposed to a lot of other damage down the kinetic chain. Most of that in the knees because we knowthat if you have weakness and instability up at the hips it's going to affect the positionof the knees and that most often will result in too much torque, and pain, and injury inthe knee. So what we can do for the glute medius is,we can do this in a lot of different ways. The first way to do it is to get up here againstthe wall, okayé Lift up your leg here.

This is not the leg we're actually workingbecause in order to get the glute medius, what we want to be able to do is abduct thehip straight out to the side. Now, when we do a closed chain it looks alittle different than it would traditionally as people know as abduction of the hip. This way. Straight out to the side. Well, when we do with our foot fixed on theground and you drop the hip out to the side, you're actually squeezing in.

you can see if I kept it going it's not differentwith the hip ending up out here on the outside of my body. So you will just allow yourself to get lazy. Drop down to the side. Allow your hips to drop down in this direction. The only thing that can actually bring themback up now if you do this right is the contraction right here of the glute medius, leaving itstraight across. Sideways.

You should feel it tightening right here inthe hip. Right in the butt. You come straight across and you try to liftyour hips up even a little bit more at an angle this way. You feel the squeeze, you let it drop andget lazy. Feel the squeeze, let it drop and get lazy. If you can't do 20 of these in a really slow,contracted way, squeezing every single time without the burn becoming something you can'teven tolerate, then you really, really have

weak hips. Even doing exercises like the squat when you'rebeing told to keep your knees out as you go down is going to become very difficult foryou and is going to be somewhat problematic when you try to keep your knees healthy whenyou're doing squats. But you guys know that there's different levelsfor different people. We can make this more difficult by addingsome resistance. So if we find that our athletes are strongenough in the bodyweight version then we add the ball.
