5 Lower Body Exercises to Target Your Butt, Hips and Thighs

If all of you are doing exercises for the lower body lately, it is the right time to combine your own routine.

Our bodies go around in various directions, perhaps not in one way. These five movements will make sure you won’t ever get bored exercising your own buttocks.

Plié Squat

Plie Squat: Can be done without a weight for beginners. With toes pointed diagonally outward, wider than shoulder-width, lower yourself into a deep squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Keep your back straight and shoulders back and down. Knees should not go past your toes on the ‘down’ position. Exhale and come back to starting position. Repeat. For extra burn, at the end of your set hold your last squat in the down position for 20 seconds.

Lateral Step-Out Squat


Stand with your feet a few inches apart and a resistance band loop above your ankles. Step one foot out to the side, then bring your other foot to meet it. Reverse the movement back to start. Continue for 20 seconds, then repeat to the other side for another 20 seconds

Plank Leg Lift

What it does: Tightens your booty, hamstrings, shoulders, and core!
How to do it: Begin in a plank position with your hands directly below your shoulders and core engaged. Lift your right leg into the air, squeezing your booty. Slowly lower back down. Complete 20 reps then switch sides.

Lying Leg Lift

Lie on side with both legs extended straight, toes pointed. Turn top leg out so top of foot faces ceiling and lift while maintaining the rotation. Keep pelvis stable by drawing in belly. Do 12 reps on each side.
