A firm, perky butt has always been in demand amongst women, but it has become even more popular in recent years due to celebrities, style trends, and pop culture.
So whether you want to shape your existing butt or grow a Kardashian-like butt, there are certain exercises that will help you look your best in leggings and tight jeans.
Even if you’re not desperate to tone your butt, here’s a good reason to incorporate booty exercises into your workout. The butt, scientifically known as gluteus maximus (glutes for short), is the largest muscle in your body. You know what that means: the more muscles you build, the more calories you’ll get to burn at rest.
There are other benefits of having stronger glutes too, such as helping you achieve proper pelvic alignment and giving you more power and propulsion during daily activities such as squatting, walking, running and balancing. When your glutes are strong and properly engaged in those activities, the risk of strain or injuries to the back and knees will be greatly reduced.
Ready to achieve a tighter, perkier and stronger butt? Here are some easy booty-strengthening exercises to try. No equipment needed.
