If you feel your rear view is lacking or are tired of having saggy pants, it’s time to take action. That’s easy to say, but hard to do, right? Although the motivation to exercise -- and get a bigger butt -- may be there, time can sometimes limit what we’re really capable of doing. Changing your habits throughout the day can help you to get a bigger butt.
Squeeze your glute muscles while sitting in a chair. Hold for two seconds. Repeat various times throughout the day.
Squat to the floor every time you need to pick something up rather than leaning forward from your hips. Tighten your glutes as you squat and when you stand back up.
Take the stairs rather than the elevator. As you climb the stairs, take two steps at a time, or take as many steps as you need to make your legs bend 90 degrees when placed on the upper stair. Go up the stairs slowly, tightening your glutes as you climb.
Jump with your kids on the trampoline or just on the floor. Jump up as high as you can, landing in a squat position.
Stand up and work your glutes. Every time you stand up from a sitting position, place your hands on your shoulders with your arms crossed over your chest. Keep your back straight. Stand up slowly, tightening your glutes as you stand. Sit back down in the same manner.
Do lunges and squats while you’re on the phone or waiting for an email.
