With the ever-increasing popularity of a full and round backside, people are always looking for ways to tone their tushes and boost their buttocks. The following circuit training exercises will not only increase your heart rate but also target the muscles in your buttocks. Do 20 repetitions of one exercise before going on to the next, resting for 30 seconds between each exercise. Once you have completed the 20 repetitions of each of these five exercises, you will have completed one set. Perform a total of three sets to complete this exercise routine. Repeat this routine three to four times per week for a more shapely and lifted butt.
Begin in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees into a squat position, and place your hands on the ground just outside your legs. Next, walk or jump your legs back to bring yourself into a plank position (push-up form with your arms straight). Lift your right leg straight up into the air and then return to a plank position. Repeat with your left leg. Next, walk or jump your feet back up to your hands. From this squat position, jump up as high as you can with your arms in the air. This completes one repetition.
Lie on your back with your arms down to your sides against the floor. Lift your legs perpendicular to the floor and bend your knees to a 90-degree angle so your calves are parallel to the floor. Keeping your knees in a 90-degree angle, slowly lower your right leg and touch or tap the toes of your right foot on the ground, and then bring your right leg back up. Repeat with your left leg to finish one rep.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms reaching straight up into the air. Kick your right leg up as high as possible while bringing your arms down to clap beneath your right thigh. Return to the starting position and repeat with the left leg for one rep.
Jog in place, bringing your knees up in front of you as high as possible. Each right and left high knee lift is one rep.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms by your sides. Bend your knees to assume a squat position. Bend forward and stretch your arms straight out in front of you while extending your right leg straight behind you, trying to make your body as parallel to the floor as possible (engage your core muscles to help you balance on your left foot). While holding this position, slowly bend your left knee as much as you can, bringing your body towards the floor with it, and then straighten your left knee back out. Return to a standing position and then repeat with the opposite leg to complete one rep. (Not as “kick-back” as they sound, right?)
