Also termed as the gluteus maximus, the butt is actually the largest muscle group in the human body.

Our butts (or booty, whatever you want to call it), do more than serving as something to admire. Kudos to them for supporting us when we walk, run, stand, climb…just think of what we’d be without them.

You might be surprised to know that we use our glutes more than we do our biceps. So, what more than to show off your bum by ensuring that they are drool-worthy!

Rock those skinny jeans with these exercises designed to get you that sexy booty in no time!

  • Lower your body to a squat, going all the way down
  • Ensure that your knees do not go over your toes
  • Keep your back straight

Work your butt:

  • Squeeze your glutes and thighs when standing up

  • Lift your hips up to create a straight line from your chest to your knees

Work your butt:

  • Squeeze your glutes and thighs at the top of this position
  • Tuck in your abs and glutes throughout
  • Do not lift your hips too high to avoid back injuries
