Floor Bridge

Buns of Steel!

Trying to tone the glutes?

Unless you’re Sir Mixalot, it’s quite hard to get excited about a big butt!
To reduce your derrière try the classic floor bridge.

Lie flat on your back with the hands by your side and knees bent. Your feet should be about shoulder width apart.
Pushing mainly with your heels, breathe out and lift your hips off the floor while keeping your back straight.
Hold at the top for a second squeezing the glutes before slowly returning to the starting position.
To increase the intensity, try one leg at a time.

Simple and effective, the floor bridge is a great toning exercise to tighten your buns!

The classic squat is a great way to get a nicely toned derrière!
A potent exercise, the classic squat will build and strengthen the glutes, hamstrings and quads.
Stand upright with weights across the shoulders (you can hold up dumbells or a bar) then, keeping your back straight and abs in slowly bend your knees and drop to an almost sitting position.
From here, you simply stand up again in a slow and controlled manner.
