We’ll be honest, the lovely weather this summer had us eating out and overindulging in cocktails as we soaked up the evening sun day after day. It was great fun, but certainly hasn’t had the best effect on our bottoms! It’s not long until Christmas so we’re ready to put some serious effort into fixing that ahead of party season. Read on to learn about our favourite bottom firming exercises, plus our secret weapon. (You’re welcome!)
Exercise routine for a firm bum
Follow this ten-minute routine once a day for a lifted, smooth and firmer bottom:
- Squats – Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and your arms stretched out in front. Slowly bend your knees, keeping your back straight, and lower yourself as if you were sitting on a chair. Go as low as you can, and then come back up. Repeat 10-12 times.
- Leg raises – Lie down on your side, with the leg closest to the floor slightly bent for support. Use your bottom hand to rest your head on, and place your top hand on your top hip to help keep your body up straight. Straighten your top leg, and lift it up towards the ceiling, as far up as you can. Lower it slowly. Repeat 10-12 times on both sides.
- Lunges – Start by standing up straight, and step forward with one foot. Slowly bend your knees until your legs are at right angles from the floor, then squeeze your buttocks and thighs to push your self back up to standing. Repeat 10-12 times on each leg.
- Bridge – Start by lying on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Raise your hips to create a straight line from your hips to your knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles and buttocks as you come back up. Slowly lower yourself back down. Repeat 10-12 times.
