Five Moves for a Toned Booty

October 20, 2017

Who doesn’t love a good booty burn workout? Today, I am sharing five of my favorite moves to tone your booty. These can be done just about anywhere, so add them in to your daily moves.

Equipment Needed:

Mat

Mini band

Do 60 seconds of each move.  Complete the routine at least 2 times. The band moves can be done without the mini band, but the mini band adds an extra burn. 

Tabletop slashes

To do this move: Start on all fours (tabletop position) with your wrists under your shoulders and knees under your hips. The band should be around your thighs. Tuck your tail and lift your right leg out to an angle as high as you can without arching your back. (This may not be very high and that is okay. Keeping your tail tucked is most important). Then bring it across your left leg down to the ground making a slash.

Repeat 60 seconds, then switch sides. 

Marching bridges

 

To do this move: Lie on your back on the mat with knees bent and feet on the floor.  Lift your hips to the sky, pushing through your heels.  Take turns alternating between lifting your left and right legs as you lift and lower.

Continue for 60 seconds.

Clamshell

To do this move: Lay on your side with your knees out in front of your hips making a 90 degree angle.  Place the band high on your calves. Rest your head in your hand and put the other arm in front of you to balance.  Lift your toes to the sky and open and close your legs to make a clam shell.

Repeat 60 seconds, then switch sides. 

Band leg lifts + squats

To do this move: Stand with the band around your calves, feet a little more than hip-distance apart. Squat (push your booty back and keep your knees behind your toes) and come up. Then, lift your right leg up to the side, but keep your tail tucked. Squat again, then repeat with your left leg.

Continue for 60 seconds. 

Band kickbacks

To do this move: Stand with your feet a little more than hip width’s apart and the band just above your ankles. Keep your hands on your hips, tuck your tail and kick your right foot back at an angle (think of it like a clock, kick your right leg to 5:00 and your left to 7:00). Alternate between your right and left.

Continue for 60 seconds. 

 

Repeat entire circuit 2-3 times and for an extra burn, add in these booty moves too!

    These are great moves! They look like ones I can actually do AND do them in front of the television.

  • lisa thomson October 20, 2017 at 7:52 am

    Wow, you look great and this is inspiring! I love to do this kind of thing in front of the tv. Also, those bands are great to take on a vacation. Easy to pack. Thanks for the inspo!

    I need this exact workout! Since we are getting into the colder months up here, and I’m not wearing shorts or swimsuits, I don’t tend to put much work into this area of my body. Adding this to my routine!

  • Shybiker October 20, 2017 at 9:05 am

    Nice moves. I do a variation of them but your’s include more muscles. And you describe them very clearly which helps.

  • Beth Kondrick October 20, 2017 at 10:12 am

    I love that these are all something you can just do in your own living room! And I love the videos showing how they are done, that helps so much!

  • Lindsay October 20, 2017 at 11:14 am

    YOU look fantastic girl! Great moves, they sure do work. My fave are the kickbacks.
    I’m sad, I’m on zero lower body anything right now because I’m having hip, L1-L3 and numbing issues down my leg. Get some of that booty for me girl!!! 🙂

    Have a great weekend love.

  • Lyndsey October 20, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    these are awesome moves!!! I am working on that booty all the time!!

  • ShootingStarsMag October 20, 2017 at 9:27 pm

    It looks so easy but those marching bridges look like they hurt! I’ll keep this for after my baby is born. I’m gonna need a lot of help to get back in shape!

  • Debbie Savage October 25, 2017 at 12:27 pm

    I am really loving these moves! I would probably feel more comfortable doing it in the privacy of my home than a gym! LOL! I would really love to exercise with you! I need toned booty and yours looks good!

  • Jean October 25, 2017 at 2:32 pm

    This is awesome I know I need to get a band in my life. Now if I just didn’t get assaulted by rowdy toddlers for my floor exercises it would be perfect.

  • Mai Lyn Ngo November 6, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    That band may be small but it is mighty. So much burn from such a little thing. We need to do another partner collab soon please!!
