Sagging butt cheeks can make your bottom look big and there is no else to blame but us. Think about your current lifestyle and how physically active you are and chances are you will find that you spend most of your time sitting down in front of your computer or TV screen. This isn’t really surprising as most of our work is spent in front of the computer as technology has given us the opportunity to enhance the kind of work that you do. The downside to this, however, is that we don’t really do much except to sit for hours. Fortunately, we can help keep our butt perky even when we’re staying at home with the help of some resistance band workouts like the ones below.
Booty skate. Tie your band in a loop around your legs at shin level. Make sure that the band is taught by spreading your legs and your feet at hip-width apart. Go into a slight squat then step your left foot out to your side as wide as you can manage and with your arms swinging. Step your right foot out as well quickly. Continue doing this until you complete 20 reps.
Perky cheeks deadlift. Here’s another resistance band workout that will help tone and sculpt your butt. With your resistance band still in a loop, step on the band with feet hip-width apart and your hands holding the knotted end. Slightly bend your knees then hinge forward at the hips until your torso is parallel to the floor. You will feel a slight stretch in your hamstrings while in the down position. While keeping your spine straight, tighten your glutes to push yourself back up with the resistance band rising along with your hands. Do 20 reps for this exercise.
Kickbacks. This workout is guaranteed to challenge your hamstrings as well as your butt. To start, go down on all fours on the floor with hips stacked on top of your knees. Hold the ends of the band in each hand while the center is looped around the center arch of your left foot. With your left foot flexed and toes pointing downward, raise your left leg behind you and higher than your butt. Bring your knee back down slowly and repeat. You should do 8 to 10 reps first before switching to the other leg.
Hydrant and kick. For this exercise, you need to go down on all fours and the resistance band looped around your calves. Lower yourself on your left forearm. Tighten your core and glutes as you raise your right knee straight out to the side and going up. Release carefully. Flex your right foot while you extend your right leg and kick out to the side. Go back to your first position to complete one rep. Do 8 to 10 reps before switching to the other leg.
With just a resistance band and time on your hands, you will be able to tone your butt in no time. And because you can do these exercises any time, there is simply no reason why you shouldn’t be able to flaunt your backside any time soon.
