As a fitness professional for almost a decade, I can now say I have trained every single type of woman you can think of. From pro athletes and celebrities, to chefs and housewives to multimillionaires and more, everyone is looking for the same thing. It’s the ultimate in looking fit: killer legs and a great booty—especially now that the nice weather is almost upon us.
That’s why I’ve made it my life’s work to be able to help people get workout and nutrition programs that will give them the bodies they want.
Designed by me, the programs are all mobile friendly (so you can do them on the run, literally) and take the guesswork out of your health and fitness goals. Nice guy that I am, though, I’m sharing four of my best leg and butt exercises right here, all with photographic instruction. Oh and before I forget, you don’t need any equipment. Just bring your lovely self and get started.
Killer Leg and Butt Workout: 4 Easy Exercises
Do these exercises in order one after the other for high reps of 15-25 or 20-30 seconds each. Take a short breather after all four exercises and repeat a minimum of two times to as many as five times to really shape up your legs.
EXERCISE 1: Single Leg Butt Bridge Oh this is one of my favorites and if done correctly will make your butt feel like it’s trying to escape your body by running up your back! Start on your back. Place one foot on the ground below your knees with the other leg in the air. Drive from the heel from the foot on the ground to raise your butt and hips in the air as high as you can to squeeze your butt. Slowly lower to the bottom and repeat. Switch legs once done with the starting leg.
EXERCISE 2: Pulsing Lunge This exercise will not only burn your legs but fat as well! Start with one foot in front of the other in a lunge position. Keep the weight on your front heel and bend through your front knee so that your lead leg ends up in a 90 degree angle relative to your hips. Pulse up and down on the front leg making sure NOT to come all the way up at the top placing constant stress on the front leg.
EXERCISE 3: Plie Squat – Heels Down This exercise will get the troublesome area of your inner thighs that everyone seems to jump on the machine in the gym; you know the one I’m talking about, a modern day thigh master. Stand with your feet wider than your hips and turn your feet outward to feel a stretch in your groin. Keep the pressure on your heels and slowly lower your body keeping your back straight and abs tight. Go as low as you comfortably can while keeping your heels down, once you reach the bottom drive up through your heels engaging your groin muscles and squeezing your butt at the top.
EXERCISE 4: Plie Squat – Heels Up The same position as the heels down plie but your heels will be in the air making this move more challenging on your groin and booty. Stand with your feet wider than your hips and turn your feet outward to feel a stretch in your groin. Lift your heels up and slowly lower your body keeping your back straight and abs tight. Go as low as you comfortably can while keeping your heels up, once you reach the bottom drive up through the balls of your feet engaging your groin muscles and squeezing your butt at the top.
