In this day and age of Kardashian-grade booties, you might be wondering: what can you do to keep your bum game strong? Exercise expert, Tami Tyson, demonstrates a few different fitness moves that can help you better reach your body goals.
Lunges are one of the best exercises for targeting your booty – if you’re performing them correctly, that is. What we tend to do when performing a lunge is lean too far forward, which causes our weight to shift from the heel to the bottom of the foot. This common mistake can often mean less emphasis on the glutes, and extra pressure on the knees and joints. To self-correct your lunges, ensure you are pushing down on your heel when you take a step forward, being careful to keep your shin straight, forming a 90 degree angle with your leg. When pushing up from your lunge, again, ensure you are pushing up from your heel to get the most out of the exercise.
Similarly, a lunge backwards is a great way to stretch and tone the booty and thighs. Keep the same thing in mind when performing a backwards lunge; keeping your weight on your heel throughout.
