No-Equipment Workout to Lift & Tighten Glutes

The no-weights butt tightener!

Exercises such as barbell squats, weighted lunges, deadlifts, and leg presses are all great for getting a bigger, tighter, rounder backside. However, all of these exercises require access to a gym. This no-equipment butt workout lifts and tightens the glutes without the need of barbells or fancy machines. All you need is a yoga mat or bath towel to lay on the floor. That’s it! You can do this workout anywhere, any time, and you’ll be one step closer to a stronger, fuller butt.

What You’ll Need: a mat or towel to lay on the floor

What to Do: Perform 25 reps of each move without breaks in between. Then rest for 30-60 seconds and repeat.

Beginners: 2 rounds
Intermediate: 4 rounds

Move up a level whenever you no longer feel the workout is a challenge for you.
