10 butt busters to get your booty ready for the beach

 
Bikini season is just around the corner, and we wanna get you in tip top shape! Forget the boring old running routine, you need something that will get your booty looking fab in time for summer. Try these simple exercises for fast results.
 

Simple squats

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your hands straight out in front of you. Pretend that you are about to sit on a chair by bending your butt down and leaning the top of your body forward. Don’t forget to keep you head straight! Using your heels, push your body back up into a standing position. Repeat 20 times.
 

Donkey kicks

Stand on all fours with your hands below your shoulders and your knees below your hips (kinda like a table). Keep your right knee bent, flex your foot, and lift the knee parallel to your hip. Hold for 2 seconds, then lower back to the ground. Repeats 15 times and then switch to the left leg.
 

Leg bridge

Lay on your back with your hands by your sides and your knees bent. Keep your feet flat on the ground, directly under your knees and your hips raised from the ground, causing your body to form a straight line. Slowly raise your right leg, then lower it. Now repeat with the left leg. Do this 20 times. Keep those hips up!
 

Plank scissor

Want to try something super challenging? Balance your body on the forearms and toes. Place your feet wider than hip-width apart. Lift your left leg to the height of your hips and slowly return it back to the ground. Do the same with your right leg and repeat 5 times.
 

Star blaster

Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and your toes pointing out. Lower as far into a squat as possible without letting your knees move past your toes. Immediately, jump up and then return back to your squat. Repeat 10 times.
 

Split jumps

This one is super difficult, but we think you’re up for the challenge. Find a wide doorway and place your hands on both sides. Your arms should be slightly pointing down, and, with both legs, kick the sides of the doorway. Try to hold yourself up (it’ll take a few tries). Once you get the hang of it, the goal is to stay up for 15 seconds.
 

Lunges

Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart. Slowly step forward, causing both legs to form right angles. Keep your front knee directly above your ankle. Step back into your original position and do the same thing with the other leg. Repeat 20 times.
 
Crab crawl
Sit upright with your feet flat on the ground and hip-width apart. Place your hands behind your back and lift your butt. Try walking around with your right hand following your left foot and your left hand following your right foot. Make sure you do this in an open space. Once you start crawling quickly, you’ll look like a crab.
 

Raise the rear

Lay on your back with your hands under your tailbone. With your ankles crosses, slowly raise your legs over your hip. Use your arms for support and let your butt come off the ground. Lower your legs back down to the ground and repeat 10 times.
 

Chair lifts

Stand with your hands holding the back of a chair and your feet hip-width apart. Put your body weight onto the left leg and slowly lift your right leg behind you. Keep your right leg about 6 inches from the ground, then lower it back down. Do the same with your left leg and repeat 15 times. That’s it!
