Here are 6 tips on how to lift your butt:
1. Keep your butt in plain view.
When targeting a problem area, people are usually inclined to cover that spot, but experts suggest exposing it in the workout clothes you wear. Exposing your bottom will allow you to focus in on that area and allow you to watch your muscles work while you sweat–It starts with your mind first! You will also be able to see your results as they manifest.
2. Use weights, not just your body weight.

3. Try the 30-second rule.
Instead of rushing through squats and lunges, freeze in the lowest position for 30 seconds. This will allow you to take an extra-deep contraction through your glutes and core and stabilize your body before standing up again. Do at least three sets while watching your favorite show. One thing we like to do is called: “Squatmercials”: That’s when while watching your favorite show, do squats during the commercials! It’s brilliant–and it works!
4. Take it slow.
When doing strength training, don’t rush through your repetitions. It’s true the faster you do the reps the quicker you will get done, but doing this will stunt your results. Form is everything when it comes to toning and lifting your butt. But don’t…
