Want to know what celebrity workout Jennifer Lopez uses? These butt exercises, designed by her personal trainer, will tone your lower body in no time.
Work Your Butt Like Jennifer Lopez

Perhaps Jennifer Lopez's most notable achievement is making a curvy body a good thing in Hollywood. The singer, actress, dancer, designer, and mother of twins has a butt that inspires other women all over to do lots of squats and lunges. We know you want to know how she gets her body (because we sure do). Here, the exercises from Jennifer Lopez's trainer to get her butt and toned body.

Gunnar Peterson, Jennifer Lopez's trainer, gave us this exercise to work your butt and obliques.

The exercise: Twisting lunge

A. Stand with feet parallel, arms at sides. Take a large step backward with left foot.

B. Turn so your upper body faces all the way to the left, and pivot both feet so your left foot faces forward and your right foot faces out (heel of left foot is perpendicular to right). Lower hands toward floor over left leg, being careful to keep left knee in line with left ankle. Pivot back to center and repeat on opposite leg. Do 12 to 15 reps; switch sides.

Peterson also gave us this exercise to sculpt your entire body like J.Lo. This one move works your arms, core, legs, and butt.

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, holding a 5- to 10-pound dumbbell in each hand, elbows bent 90 degrees, with palms facing forward. Keeping chest up, squat down. As you lift back up through glutes, twist body to the left, allowing feet to pivot so that right heel lifts off the floor. At the same time, press dumbbells overhead. Return to start. Switch sides and repeat. Do 16 reps, alternating sides. Do 3 sets.

Try Cardio

"Focus on cardio that uses your whole body to challenge more muscles and burn extra calories in less time," says Peterson. Try rowing. "It's easy on joints and works every muscle," he says.

After four kids, including twins (all now grown), I would like to know how to get rid of a butt! Instead of getting smaller, it seems to grow with age. It's hereditary, but there has to be something to reduce instead of enhance, the butt region. :D

Good plan, but only butt workout is not good enough for a lean, fit, sexy, feminine body. A complete program must be followed with workouts, diet, healty foods etc. I found lately such a program from Flavia del Monte and I am following it.The program is called "Flavia Del Monte's Licious & Curvalicious Workout Systems". The results are amazing. To achieve the same positive results follow the link below:

The reason the directions for #1 are confusing is that the photo shows the L foot pointed off to the left, while the directions say it should point forward, with the R foot pointing off to the side. Reverse, and it'll work.
