Tips and techniques for a firmer bum at home

Warm weather is approaching fast and that means summer vacation is right around the corner! Though it’s still only March, it’s never too late to start getting your summer body beach-trip ready. So don’t get left in the dust! Get ready to be kickin’ it with your besties beach side,  feelin’ and lookin’ better than ever. But don’t start stressing just yet. We’ve got some great tips for easy, stress-free workouts to get your peach plumper than ever!

Don’t have the time to make it to the gym? We’ve got your back. Some of the best workouts for your bum can be done right in the comfort of your own home. And you’ll only need a few things to get started: resistance bands, some dumbells, and some steps! But don’t think you need to run to the store and get everything mentioned right away; you can get your booty poppin’ without any equipment. Or get those creative juices flowing and substitute dumbells for some gallons of water (you’ll need them anyway!), or make some use of those long-forgotten books on your bookshelf to substitute for some steps!

Resistance bands are one of the best tools to get toned. Add them to any excersise you do, and the exercise instantly becomes 10x harder and 10x more effective. Begin with a moderate strength band and work your way up from there. Some great excersises to try out with resistance bands are deadlifts, donkey kicks, hip thrusts, and hip abductors. Start your workout with a circuit of these 3 excersises – doing each 20 times a piece – and you’ll have a sculpted rear end in no time!

Another staple is the widely known and user friendly dumbell. You can choose anywhere from an easy 3-pounder, or, if you’re feelin’ it you can work all the way up to an astonishing 375 pounds (though that might be pushing it just a little bit!)With the help of dumbells, your squats and lunges will be that much harder and that much more effective. If you’re looking for a challenge, you can even throw on a resistance band and double the intensity for a more extreme workout.

Steps can also be incorporated into almost every excersise. Getting bored with squats? Try jump squatting onto your steps! Or try out some inclined lunges for a bit more definition.

Combine these tips and techniques in a way that works for you! Everyone is different, but one thing is constant for everyone – consistency is key. Grab a friend and get to squatting! Your butt isn’t going to shape itself!
