Body Bar Monday Move : Best Butt Exercises

Summer is almost in full swing so lets target those glutes just like the celebrities.  The following exercises come straight from Beyonce and Blake Lively‘s routines so you know they’re going to give you great results.

We suggest doing a little warm up (about 10 minutes of cardio) to get your legs loosened up.  When performing these exercises, as with any exercise, make sure your form and posture are correct especially when performing squats.  Don’t forget to breath and drink plenty of water especially as the temperatures outside start to rise.

Perform 2-3 sets of each exercise for the best results.

Overhead Squat
Works: Legs, butt, and shoulders

A. Hold a Body Bar overhead, hands shoulder-width apart and palms facing away from you, and stand with feet slightly wider than shoulders.

B. Keeping bar raised, squat until thighs are parallel to the ground. Rise up and repeat. Do 12 to 15 reps.

Body Bar Hip Lift
Works:
 Butt and hamstings

A. Lie faceup with upper back on a stability ball and hold a Body Bar on your hips, knees bent 90 degrees and body aligned from shoulders to knees.

B. Lower hips, pause for 1 count, then squeeze glutes to return to starting position, and repeat. Do 12 to 15 reps.
