5 Lower Body Exercises to Target Your Butt, Hips and Thighs


If all of you are doing exercises for the lower body lately, it is the right time to combine your own routine. Our bodies go around in various directions, perhaps not in one way. These five movements will make sure you won’t ever get bored exercising your own buttocks.

Plié Squat

Plie Squat:  Can be done without a weight for beginners.  With toes pointed diagonally outward, wider than shoulder-width, lower yourself into a deep squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground.  Keep your back straight and shoulders back and down.  Knees should not go past your toes on the ‘down’ position.  Exhale and come back to starting position.  Repeat.  For extra burn, at the end of your set hold your last squat in the down position for 20 seconds.

Lateral Step-Out Squat 

Stand with your feet a few inches apart and a resistance band loop above your ankles. Step one foot out to the side, then bring your other foot to meet it. Reverse the movement back to start. Continue for 20 seconds, then repeat to the other side for another 20 seconds
