The Top Fitness Workouts to Get Your Booty Swimsuit Ready
Swimsuit season is just around the corner – or maybe where you live, it’s already here. But don’t worry, there’s still time to get your booty ready. Even if you’ve always had a “pancake butt,” there are several exercises you can do that will lift and tone your rear. Here are the top fitness workouts to get your booty swimsuit ready. You’ll be strutting poolside in no time!
Pro Tip #1| Lift Heavy Or Until Muscle Failure
Your butt is a large muscle, and you need to treat it that way. If you want to lift and tone it, you need to lift heavy weights. Don’t be afraid to max out your reps too. Working until muscle failure means that you’ve used as much muscle as you have. That means you’ll maximize the time you spend working out.
Pro Tip #2| Mix It Up
Three muscles make up your butt: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus. To get your booty swimsuit ready, you’re going to need to work all 3 groups. Mixing up your workouts means you’re more likely to target those groups and get your butt to perky levels.
Pro Tip #3| Activate Your Glutes
All of those squats and lunges aren’t going to make a difference if you perform them using your quads and not your rear end. You need to make sure you activate your glutes and recruit them to do the work. Two quick methods to do this are to do some donkey kicks or glute bridges as a warm-up.
