If your main goal is to build your booty, the #1 equipment we recommend to keep at home is a set of ankle weights. They’re easy-to-use padded weights that you can strap around your legs. When you workout using ankle weights, it allows you to easily increase the difficulty of a gluteus exercise. And the more of a challenge your workout brings, the faster you’ll see results!
For this workout using ankle weights we chose simple on-the-mat moves that are great for beginners. For intermediate or advanced levels, we recommend doing this workout before or after a lower body routine. It’ll help you give the booty a little extra attention, improving the shape and tone.
What You’ll Need: a set of ankle weights (you can get an affordable set online), and a mat or towel to lay on the floor.
What to Do: Strap on your ankle weights. Complete all the exercises leading with your right side, with no break in between moves. Rest for 30-60 seconds and repeat on your left side.
Below, we’ve included videos showing how to perform each move. Using proper form helps prevent injuries and ensures you’re getting the most out of your workout.
