As a certified trainer and busy mom of 3, I love my legs now even more than when I was in my teens. I have helped many clients to love their legs so let me share with you these great leg and butt exercises so that you can rock your summer shorts this year:
Squats are a girl’s best friend, right? If not, they should be, because squats can literally transform the shape of your legs and butt. If you want to lift, tighten and tone your butt, perform 3 sets of 18 squats 3 days a week. This is one of the leg and butt exercises that will become a staple in your workout routine because it works that well!
2. Squat Hold
A squat hold is the best way to spend your free time while brushing your teeth, isn't it? If not, you should start because just a 2 minute squat hold each day can transform the shape of your butt and hamstrings. To get into your summer shorts with a smile, just add this exercise into your day!
3. Jump Squats
Jump squats are the exercise you do while you are waiting in the checkout line at the grocery store, right? Okay this may be going a bit too far but you should seriously add this explosive exercise into your workout plan. Jump squats not only target the legs and butt but also the core.
