Sagging butt doesn’t really help our overall physique but with our current lifestyle, where we often sit for hours, this is most likely to happen because we lack exercise. If you want to bring back the perkiness of your butt, you need to train your gluteal muscles once more to firm them up. Fortunately, there are some wicked butt exercises that you can do that will train your behind so that you’ll have firmer and rounder buttocks in no time. Here are a few suggestions for you to get started on.

Plank jacks 

In this exercise, you will need to go into a plank position with your wrists positioned under your shoulders, arms extended, and your legs straight and resting on the balls of your feet. Your legs should be pinned together. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders all the way to your heels. While keeping your core tight, jump your legs up a bit then open them as they land. Jump back to your first position to complete one rep. Do 12 reps to complete one set of plank jacks. 

Donkey kicks 

Another butt workout that will give you a toned behind is the donkey kicks. For this exercise, you should go down with your hands on the ground. Make sure that your hands are positioned under your shoulders, and knees under your hips. Engage your core as you raise your right foot towards the ceiling while keeping your knee bent at 90 degrees. This movement mimics a donkey kicking upward. Do 10 reps before switching to the other leg. 

Deadlifts 

You can never go wrong with doing deadlifts as part of your butt-lifting workout. Not only will this exercise tone your glutes but it will also work on your hamstrings too. For this exercise, you will need a pair of dumbbells held with an overhand grip and positioned in front of your thighs. Stand straight your feet about hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Keep your back straight. While keeping the bend to your knees, hinge forward at the hips to lower your torso until it is almost parallel to the floor. Pause then push your hips forward to raise your torso back to its first position. Do 10 reps.

Single-leg jumps 

Here’s another challenging exercise that will work your gluteal muscles. The single-leg jump will require you to use the muscles on your butt and legs to keep you balanced while jumping explosively. Shift your weight to your right leg as you raise the left leg off the floor. Push your hips back then jump as high as you can manage. Land softly on your right leg as you keep your hips back to help you stay centered. Do 10 jumps then switch to the other leg. 

You will need to do 3 to 4 sets for each of these exercises to really feel the burn on your butt and leg muscles. For sure, you will see a noticeable improvement on your lower body when you do these exercises regularly.
