Our shapes can change for various reasons including hormones, age, gravity, and weight gain, this is the reason buttocks start losing firmness. By exercising regularly you can get your buttocks back to firm.



Warm up with Squats

The best workout for your buttocks starts with squats. You may find it tough initially but stick with it. Keep your back straight with hands at your hip and stand with your feet as wide as possible pointing out. Use your knees to bend and lower yourself down keeping your bum tucked and tummy firm so that your thighs are parallel to the floor. Repeat 10-12 times.

Take the stairs

If you want firm buttocks this can be very effective. You can build up to doing two steps at a time. To keep your muscles long and lean stretch your legs when you get to the top.



This can be done while watching television. Put one leg forward about a foot. Place your hands on your hips, bend your legs, and lower yourself until your back nearly touches the floor. Repeat 20 times, tighten your bum muscles throughout the exercise.

The Donkey

Straight buttocks squeeze

Lie on your stomach with your head resting on your arms. Keeping your legs together lift them up pointing towards the ceiling. Hold that position for 3 -5 seconds and then slowly lower your legs. Repeat 15 times.
