Ok...I want a sexy butt...who doesn't. I have been looking around for some great butt excercises (along with abdominal ones...YUCK) to help assist my body moving in the direction I want it to. I thought I would share a couple really easy ones that I found on I'm sure a lot of you have seen these before, as I have, but it's a great reminder...shorts...ugh, swimsuits are coming.

Lunge and Rise
Stand 3 feet from stair with a dumbbell in each hand. Step with left foot, placing it on stair and allowing right heel to lift off floor. Bend both knees and lower into a lunge, left leg bent, so knee is directly over ankle and right knee not quite touching floor. Shifting weight to left leg, push off right foot to stand, lifting foot and tapping it on stair. Step right leg back and repeat lunge. Do all reps, then switch sides.

Bridge Lift
Lie on back with knees bent, feet flat on floor shoulder-width apart, and arms at sides. Press into heels, squeezing glutes as you lift hips for 2 counts, forming a diagonal line from shoulders to knees. Extend left leg straight out in line with torso for 2 counts, then bend and return foot to floor, holding another 2 counts. Lower hips; repeat lift, extending opposite leg.

For more, just click on the link in the exercise title.
