Everybody wants a rock hard butt and beautifully toned thighs. Here are three simple exercises to help you achieve the butt and thighs you have always wanted.
Lunges are incredibly effective in toning your butt and thighs. Now, you have probably done these in high school gym class or somewhere else and thought they were useless, but when you start doing high numbers of repetitions, they really work.
To do a lunge, stand up straight with your hands on your hips. Step forward with your left foot and lunge forward. When you can go any further forward, return to your starting position and do it with the other foot. It’s that simple.
*Note: try not to step too far forward, it increased the chance of an injury.
Squats are another simple, yet extremely effective butt and thigh toning exercise. You don’t even need any supplemental weights to experience the full effect of this activity.
Stand straight up with your arms crossed in front of your chest. Your feet should be shoulder width apart. Slowly start squatting down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. When you reach that position, change direction and stand up straight again. Do this exercise slowly and in a controlled motion. Try not to squat down too far.
Stepups work in a very similar way to squats, but they work unilaterally. (One side at a time) You can also add some intensity to this exercise to increase your heart rate and benefit from some cardiovascular training.
To do a step up, find a sturdy object that is about 1 foot tall. Place it in front of you. Put one foot on it, and step up on to the object, elevating yourself. Reverse the process and step back down. Now, repeat the same process with the other foot.
As you can see, simple exercises like the lunge, the squat and step ups can really tone your but and thighs without being to complicated!
