Hello there, flat butt. You may not have the excess chub and minimize the appearance of those saddlebags, but you don’t hold your own in a dress, and needless to say, a fancy thong is wasted on you. Well, we’re on a quest to get a curvier, fit bottom, and this booty boosting workout move might just do the trick.
Step 1: Lie face down on a mat before you get on all fours. Be sure to stabilize your body, palms stretched out, knees planted and core engaged (contract your mid-section.
Step 2: Now, tighten your glutes and hamstrings to kick your leg back in an up and outward motion. As you raise your leg, your knee should be bent and sole pointing up towards the ceiling. Bring it back down, but without touching the ground, do another rep.
Do 3 sets of 20 reps for each leg. As you progress, you can consider strapping on ankle-weights to intensify the move. In fact, if inspiration is what you’re looking for, watch Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio execute a variation of the move, where she trains her legs with a combination of kick-backs and leg raises (at 1 minute and 32 seconds, to be precise).
