Tone your butt!

Fesse de fer_iStock_000005100390Small

Here are the best exercises to build beautiful buttocks for your swimsuit, jeans, and shorts this summer! For a complete workout, combine these exercises with your current exercise program!

Perform all of the following exercises in a circuit, without taking any pauses. When all 5 exercises are completed, take a 1- to 2-minute pause, and then repeat the circuit twice.

Once you get to the third circuit, you should feel some muscular fatigue. This is a sign that the work you are putting in is effective and will generate results. If this is not the case, add weights, or increase the poundage of your current weights.

Exercise 1 :

Sumo squat: Weights in hands, standing with the feet twice as wide as the hips, turned out to a 45o angle, bend the knees to 90o. Then straighten the legs completely without locking the knees. Repeat for 15 reps.
