One part of our body that men and women gaze alike in fantasy is the tushy! And yet, that seems to be one area where we work out the least. Not from a dearth of exercises, for there are many, but from this notion that it takes long for any improvement to come. Well, working out is a complex process and Rome wasn’t built in a day. Glutes are extremely important for your body, for apart from giving you a shapely figure, it also maintains balance in the body. In fact, the entire lower portion of your body is best suited for balance and motor movement.
Also, most of us don’t want to go to a gym due to lack of time and several other reasons. But the glute exercises don’t need weights or designated space. All it needs is a mat and your body.
Here are 6 exercises which you should be doing if you want that coveted and shapely butt!
Lie down on your back with your hands beside your hips. Now, slowly pull your knees up at a 90 degree, after which you slowly raise the upper half of your body, contracting your glutes as you raise it. Don’t use your hands to physically push you upward, for that negates the work. Slowly lower yourself to a resting position. Try this out for 3 sets of 15 repetitions each.
For this, lie down on the floor in a kneeling plank position. Now, raise your right leg until your hamstring is aligned to your spine. While raising it, don’t forget to contract your glutes. Hold that position for 5 seconds and then bring it back down, slowly. Repeat this for 3 sets of 15.
