Weight lifting moves to tone butt

Weight lifting moves to tone butt

Keeping yourself fit is not an easy job, especially if you don’t have an army of personal trainers to help you. As a woman, you know how important it is to have a toned butt; skirts look good, dresses fit just perfectly and you can feel fabulous in skinny jeans. If you are sick of jogging and climbing stairs, here are the most effective weight-lifting moves to tone your behind:

  • Leg Raises on Flat Bench - You don’t have to go to the gym to perform this move; you can replace the Flat Bench with your couch. For this exercise, you will need fitness weights that you can attach to your ankles. Sit on the edge of the couch with your legs stretched out in front of you. Raise one leg as high as you can and maintain the position for a few seconds, then bring it back down but without touching the floor. Repeat this move with each leg at least 20 times.
  • Squats - To add weights to this exercise, all you have to do is to hold one small weight in each hand. When you go into the squat form, raise your hands above your head instead of stretching them in front. The weights will put extra pressure on your butt and it will be much more effective.
  • Lunges - For this exercise, you will have to keep your back straight and your legs relaxed. Hold a fitness weight in each hand. Step forward with your right foot while lifting your arms above your head like you want to touch the ceiling. Bend your knees until you form a 90 degrees angle with your legs. The lower you go, the more effective this exercise will be. Maintain the position for two seconds, then get back up; repeat the exercise at least 30 times, then step forward with the left leg and repeat.
