9 Tips to Reach Your Fitness Goals This Year
Boost Your Butt
To get a tight, toned tush, focus on engaging both your glutes and your hamstrings. Both muscle groups work together to help stop the sag, says Melanie Buren, a trainer at Flatiron Athletic Club in Boulder, Colorado. Adding a balance component by doing moves on one leg makes the exercises even more effective. Try doing single-leg deadlifts and reverse lunges together: Balance on right leg and hinge forward from the hips, keeping back flat. Raise left leg behind you parallel to the floor. Hold for 2 counts, squeezing glutes. Lower leg to start, then step left leg back into a deep lunge, bending right knee 90 degrees. Hold for 2 counts. Return to starting position. Aim for 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps on each leg.
