Firm Your Backside in 3 Moves

one-legged squat
In This Article

I know, I know, your motivator to work your glutes is so your back end looks fabulous. But did you know that strengthening your bum (gluteus maximus) and the back of your thighs (hamstrings) will help you decrease your risk of injury, including low back and knee pain?

While the muscles of the backside are some of the largest on our bodies, for most of us, they are also the weakest. By performing exercises that target the glutes and hamstrings, you will not only keep your muscles balanced and decrease your risk of injury, but you will also look fabulous in your jeans.

This workout will include the one-legged squat (targeting the gluteus maximus and the skill-related component of balance), hamstring curls with a Swiss ball and the Pilates bridge (engaging ALL the muscles of the backside). Perform these exercises twice per week to stay healthy, stay fit, and look fabulous.
