5-Minute Booty Lift

Lift, shape, and tighten!

Bring your routine to the next level with a 5-minute booty lift designed to shape and tighten your glutes. You can perform this routine even without a gym! It requires no fancy equipment and can be done in a small space, such as a bedroom or a living room. Kick things up a notch by using heavy books as weights. Who knew those outdated encyclopedias could help you get the best butt of your life?

What You’ll Need: Gym timer (Gymboss is a free to download app), workout mat or beach towel, medium to heavy weight (15 – 20lb)
