12 Exercises to Tighten Your Butt and Legs in No Time
Alex Silver-Fagan, a Nike trainer, believes that to get your legs and buttocks into great shape, you need to do squats. These exercises may be easily combined with others or done on their own. They are simple, can be done at home, and take no more than 15 minutes.
1. Basic squat
Start with basic squats. Keep your feet flat on the ground.
2. Squat with kickbacks
Kickbacks will put your buttocks to work.
3. Sumo squat
These squats strengthen both your torso and buttocks.
4. Reaching sumo squat
This adds some cardio.
5. Oblique squat
Your waist will thank you.
6. Jump squat
This exercise is also good for your arms.
7. Narrow squat
A warm-up for the pistol squat.
8. Pistol squat
A tough exercise with a lot of work for your knees. Do it carefully, and don’t squat too low. At the beginning, you might also want to hold on to something.
9. Curtsey squat
Many muscle groups are involved simultaneously.
10. Split squat
This exercise significantly strengthens your calves, hips, and buttocks.
11. Isometric squat with toe taps
Silver-Fagan calls it the “booty burn” because the muscles are as tight as possible.
