1. Jump squats
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart; make sure your knees are pointing forward. Lower yourself into a squat, then jump. Land on the balls of your feet first. Come back to a squat position when you land.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body like you're about to sit down. Remember to elongate your spine and keep it straight. Exhale as you squat, then inhale as you return to standing position.
You'll need a sturdy chair that can support your weight. Stand in front of the chair and place your right foot on the seat (ideally your right leg should form a 90-degree angle). Step up onto the chair and tap the seat with your left foot, then drop back down. Keep your back straight the whole time. Do eight to 12 reps on one leg, then on the other.
4. Romanian deadlifts
You'll need dumbbells or a weighted bar. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. If you're using dumbbells, make sure you're holding them crosswise (palms facing the front of your thighs). Slowly bend forward at your hips and lower the weights until mid-calf level, like you're just rolling them down your legs. (You can bend your knees.) Keep your back straight. Squeeze your glutes (the butt muscles) to pull yourself back up.
5. Forward lunges
Make a big step forward and bend both knees to form 90-degree angles. Keep your back straight, your shoulders directly over your hips. Push the front foot off the floor to return to standing position. Do the same thing with the other leg to complete one rep.
6. Alternating lunge jumps
Stand with one leg back with only the toes touching the floor, and one leg forward but with that foot flat on the floor. Keep your shoulders directly above your hips. Go down to form a 90-degree angle with your knees, then spring up to switch the front and back legs and land on your heel for the front foot, and on your toe for the back foot.
Do 20 to 25 reps a set, and do three sets. (Or as many as you can.) Execute these workouts three times a week to tone your butt fast!
