First, I’ll give you some advice to help you tone your butt efficiently, and then I’ll tell you my top ten exercises to succeed!

1- Use heavy weights

To tone your butt, you have to put intensity into your workout, just like for any other muscle. Make sure you use the heaviest weights you can to trigger enough muscle growth to generate results. You should use a weight that enables you to perform a maximum of 8 to 12 repetitions, and give you trouble on the last few ones… so you can reap more rewards!

2- Use a variety of exercises

A particular exercise will work your muscles in a specific angle. Therefore, it is important that you perform a variety of exercises to stimulate your muscles in various ways and promote full development.

3- Adopt a healthy nutrition

When it comes to our body and health, exercise and healthy nutrition go hand in hand! To get the results you want and tone your butt, you need to choose the right exercises and eat clean as well. Make sure you eat enough lean protein, limit your consumption of processed sugar and alcohol, and increase your daily intake of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Remember to drink water, lots of water! A nutritionist could help you with that.

Applying this advice will help you get optimal results that you will be able to both feel and see! Now, it’s time to exercise to tone your butt!
