A Quick & Easy Workout for Your Lower Body
Need to get your booty and lower body into shape?
Try these super easy, super quick butt and thigh toning exercises. They’re a few basics combined with some new moves that have been showing some really fantastic results with my clients.
- The Dumbbell Squat
There’s no butt toning without the squat. This is your most basic go-to move for your lower body, and it’s incredibly effective. The trick to getting it right is to not look down, but maintain your focus. Don’t bend your back, stick your butt out as if you’re sitting on a chair, and don’t let your knees move past your toes.

- Bosu Ball Squats
Drop the dumbbell, and grab a bosu ball. Doing squats on the bosu add some significant challenge to your glutes and thigh muscles. Most of this is because of the balance work involved, which also helps you target other smaller muscles in your legs. To view this exercise, click here. For an even bigger challenge, try the more advanced bosu single-leg squats – view this exercise here.
- Hip Lift / Butt Squeeze
Lie down on a workout mat, bend your knees, and pull your feet into your butt while your arms rest at your sides. Pull your pelvis upward, and as you do, squeeze your butt really tight. Hold for one count, return to starting, and lift again. The way this one works is in the squeeze, so make sure that’s where you put your focus. To view this exercise, click here.
- Stability Ball Butt Toners
This one’s a not as difficult as it sounds, but it’s really effective. Rest with your belly against a stability ball, holding your balance with your palms on the floor in front of you. Hold your legs straight out behind you, creating a straight line with your head, neck, back, and legs. Alternating between legs, squeeze your butt as you pull one leg towards the ceiling, as high as you can go. Hold the squeeze there for one count, lower, and repeat on the other side.

A Simple Routine to Tone Your Butt in No Time…
Turn these exercises into killer little workout. Just knock out 3 sets of each exercise in a row, aiming for at least 8-10 reps per set. Don’t rest for too long between sets, so you keep the burn going and the toning results at their max.
Keep at it for a few weeks, and you’ll start seeing some serious results. Make sure you maintain those results with a high quality, sustained release protein supplement like Optimum 100% Casein Protein. You can’t get the toning results you want without building and conditioning muscle!
