Tone the Tush

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Want a shapelier looking bikini butt? In addition to doing some regular cardio, here are some tried and true tush toning exercises.

The Lunge

The most common mistake made with doing the lunge is using the wrong muscles. If your form isn’t correct, you’ll end up working out your legs instead of your butt. The trick is, after you lunge forward with your leg, to lower your body straight down. Your weight should be on the heel of your lunging foot and your knee should not be past your ankle.


I don’t know anyone who likes squats, but they definitely work. Throw in a few reps during commercial breaks, while you’re nuking something in the microwave, on hold on the phone or whenever you have a few minutes to yourself. You’ll notice a difference.

With feet hip-width apart, bend at the knees to slowly lower your butt down as if to sit in a chair.  Knees should be behind the toes and your upper body should be upright. If you feel off balance, extend your arms in front of you. After you lower into the squat, press with your heels to stand back up. If you want to add more intensity, add weights. You can hold them at your sides or up at your shoulders.
