Get those glutes and hamstrings firing with this leg and butt exercise that will shape and tone those trouble spots!


Lie face up on the floor, with your arms at your sides, palms down and your feet on the medicine ball, directly beneath your knees. Prepare by pressing your palms into the floor and your feet into ball. Exhale as you lift your hips and press your pelvis toward the ceiling, extending the hips fully at the top. Pause briefly, squeezing glutes, then exhale as you slowly lower the hips to the floor. Begin with 12 to 15 repetitions, then gradually increase until you can do 25 consecutive repetitions.
