Gentleman, this may seem like more of a lady issue, but both men and women can benefit from a stronger, more functional backside--and you won’t often hear members of either sex complaining about the presence of a nicely toned butt. So here are three very effective butt-toning exercises that you can do anywhere, including the comfort of your own home. Trust me, guys, these are well-worth your time.
1. Bridges: Lie on your back with both knees bent, then thrust your hips towards the sky. For added difficulty, perform bridges with just one leg, or with an exercise ball under your heels.
2. Kickouts: From a crawl position, kick out behind your body with one leg. Perform all repetitions for one leg before switching to the other leg. Add resistance with an elastic band or Gymstick.
3. Lunges: Begin with both feet together, take one big step back behind your body with one leg, then return to your starting position. For added difficulty, hold weight or do a lunge jump rather than a step.
Don’t just do this workout once each week. Instead, for faster butt toning, perform your butt exercises 2-3 times per week, with 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps for each! Break a sweat, boys!
