Summer workout to tone the booty
This has been a requested topic from a few of the classes I teach. How can we tone the booty and give it a little lift a natural? Ladies it can be done we just need a little hard work and care and attention to that part of our body to really start to notice the difference.
I’m a fan of working the glutes from many different directions and to make sure all of 3 parts of the glutes are firing properly. Below is a sample workout routine you can do 2x a week on non-consecutive days to help with the booty lift.
**I do want to do a caveat if you have “bad” knees really breaking down what’s going on there if squats hurt there could be something else at play such as proper form for your body. But I would recommend getting help from a qualified trainer to access squat form and put in place a program to help you feel more comfortable squatting. Squatting is one of the movements we need to be able to do our entire lives as we need to sit down and get up from chairs, the bathroom, and into bed. So having a basic understanding of your body to do them properly and without pain is a non-negotiable in my books.
