Considering including one or all of the following glute exercises into your fitness routine if you want to firm and tone your glutes.

– Step back into a deep lunge

– Hold this position still for about a few seconds

– Push off of the back leg and back into the starting position

Killer Squats

This exercise is not known as ‘killer’ for no reason. These types of squats are very challenging. In fact, they are so difficult; you may not be able to finish one of these when you first get started. It may be better to try and work up to completing these as your strength and stamina improve. You can also use chairs for added support if necessary.

The instructions for this exercise is as follows:

– Find an object that you can use for stability (chair, balancing bar, etc.)

– Put one of your legs out in front of you, then lower your body with your other leg.

– Stand up again (slowly)

– Repeat this exercise again, if you are able to, switch and lower with the other leg.

Doggy Leg Kicks

This type of exercise will be more effective for your glute muscles if you push your leg up as high as you can, and then push it a little further. Believe it or not, that little extra push will give you the intensity you need from the exercise to help tone your glute muscles.

The instructions for this exercise is as follows:

– Get on all fours

– Make sure your back stays as straight as it can

– Take one foot and raise it up towards the ceiling

– Maintain a 90-degree angle between your calf and your hamstring

– Keep hips straight and level

– Once your foot reaches the top, raise it a little further for more intensity

– Lower the leg, but do not let it touch the floor

– Keep this exercise controlled

– Repeat and then switch legs

These are a few of the glute exercises you can do from the comfort of your home. By doing these exercises on a regular basis, and eating a healthy and balanced diet, you will have a firmer butt in no time.
