30 Minute Booty Workout

16th Jan 2015 / By Guest Contributor

Some of you may have started the year hitting the gym hardcore, but let’s face it- by mid-month, New Year’s fitness resolutions usually come to an end. I completely understand as I’m guilty of calling it a quits far too soon (previous years). However, what has me extra motivated this time around are killer at-home workout routines. You don’t need much to break a sweat in the comfort of your own living room, plus you’ll be done within 30-45 minutes and can quickly get back to relaxing.

One of my goals this year is to tone up my legs and booty! It’s my favorite part to work on, plus I love to embrace my curves! The workout below will have you begging for a time out, but stick to it. The results are amazing & you will definitely see the results when you strut in your short shorts.

Before I start any fitness routine, I make sure to gear up! By this I mean, if I have super cute workout clothes, it motivates me to workout a little harder. So do yourself a favor and grab an outfit from Fabletics, I’m sure you’ll love it (I’m obsessed with the Cala Capris).

Squat: Drop It Low (complete 3 sets, 8-12 reps each)
Squat low for toned legs.
1. Stand tall with your feet hip width apart and your toes slightly rotating out.
2. Tilt your pelvis back (stick your butt out) and lower your butt to the ground by bending your knees.
3. Pause briefly, push through the ground to stand tall as you tuck your pelvis in and squeeze your glutes.
*Tip: Push your knees out past the width of your feet to recruit your hips when you drop your hips.

Hip Thrust: Lift It High (complete 3 sets, 8-12 reps each)
Hip Thrust: Lift it high & tighten your glutes!
1. Lie down on your back and plant your heels on the ground. Keep your heels close to your butt.
2. Push your knees away from your body as you drive your hips up as high as possible. Squeeze your glutes to increase intensity.
3. Lower halfway and repeat.

Static Lunges: Tough It Out (complete 3 sets, 8-12 reps on each side)
Static Lunges: Tough It Out
1. Stand tall with your feet shoulder width apart.
2. Engage your core.
3. Step back, pointing your knee and foot to the ground. Bring your knee down just shy of touching the ground as you tilt your pelvis back. Your weight should be over your hips.
4. Stand upright keeping a soft bend in your knee.
5. After completing a set, switch sides.

Congrats! You made it through this intense workout, but before you call it a quits, remember to stretch for 10-15 minutes. Focus primarily on your lower body. Stretching will not only loosen tight muscles, but will help with a faster recovery, prevent injury, give you a moment to relax and thank your body for all its hard work!
