Summer is here, and you want your butt to look great at the beach. Fortunately, you don’t need a gym membership or fancy equipment to get your rear in shape. All you need is a chair. These five exercises will shape your butt and give you the confidence you need to hit the beach.
This is a great variation on squats, and it can really tone your thighs and butt. Stand in front of your chair, with the backs of your calves almost touching the chair. Raise your arms above your head, palms in. Bend your knees and lower yourself down as if you were going to sit in the chair, but stop about two inches above the seat. Hold that position for about 30 seconds, then stand back up. Repeat two to three times.
You’ll need a little room in front of your chair for this one. Lie on your back with your heels on the edge of the chair seat, with your arms flat on the ground at your sides. Lift your left leg up into the air as high as you can, then press your right foot into the chair and lift your hips until your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your right foot. Hold that position for 20-30 seconds. Lower your hips back down the ground, then lower your left leg. Repeat with your right leg raised up into the air.
This is a simple exercise you can do while working at a desk. Just sit with both feet flat on the floor and your back straight, then clench your butt. Squeeze your cheeks and hold for a few seconds before releasing. Keep doing that for a minute or two. It may not seem like much, but this exercise can really help tone your butt over time.
You can do this exercise while working too. I like to do it while I’m watching YouTube videos. Just like the butt squeezes, you should start by sitting up straight with your feet flat on the floor. Then, lift one knee up as high as you can, while pointing your toes straight down at the ground. Lower your foot back to the ground, then repeat with the other leg. Keep alternating for one or two minutes.
Scoot forward to the edge of your chair with your left leg bend, foot flat on the floor. Extend your right leg straight out in front of you, and start making small clockwise circles with your foot. Continue making circles for 30 seconds, then switch directions and make counterclockwise circles for 30 seconds. When you’re done, switch to your left leg and repeat.
Keep At It For A Better Booty
These exercises are so simple, you should be able to do them throughout your day, or all at once. Not only will you tone and shape your butt, you’ll also be staying active throughout the day, which is good for your physical and mental health. Keep doing these exercises every other day or so for positive change before you know it.
