Do you want to tighten and tone your butt? Try my favorite butt exercises in a 4-week challenge for a toned and defined rear.

There’s been a lot of focus in the media in the past few years on the glutes. It’s no surprise that people are always looking for a better and more effective booty blasting routine to try. I’m not a huge fan of people working out purely for the aesthetic benefits that come as a result of exercise, because I believe in the power of working out on a regular basis as a lifestyle change.

But in reality, many people want their body to look a certain way, and a toned booty is usually at the top of the perfect body wish list.

I’m fine with whatever may be your personal reasons for exercising, because that means you’re at least getting active. If you’re squatting and moving just to firm your booty, there’s a pretty good chance that that you’re burning calories, losing unwanted body fat, trimming your waist and improving your muscle tone. If that’s not enough to get you up and going, know that every time you push yourself to get out of breath, you naturally improve your body’s ability to transport oxygen-rich blood to your muscles.

The glutes are one of the largest muscle groups in your body. It requires a lot of energy to work them, so you can maximize your overall workout calorie burn with a glutes-focused routine a few times a week. A toned butt can help give you the visual illusion of having a smaller waist. Over time you’ll tone and define your rear. You may even have to invest in a new pair of jeans as a result of doing my booty challenge.

A squat is a simple and classic exercise. It’s a move that we all do everyday when we go to sit down in a chair. It’s a useful and functional move.

How to do it: Stand up tall with your feet hip-width apart. You can have your hands on your hips or straight out in front of you. Bend your knees, keeping your body weight on your heels as if you are going to sit in a chair. As you reach sitting position (90 degrees), come back to standing.

Extra tip: You can squat slightly lower than 90 degrees if your range of motion allows. Add weights once you can master a perfect functional body weight squat.

Glute bridge

I like this move because it really works your core muscles, it’s easy to do and requires no equipment.

How to do it: Start out by lying flat on the floor. Bend one knee at a time and place your feet flat on the floor. Your heels should be about 12 inches away from your glutes, hip distance apart. Get comfortable in this position. The aim is to lift your hips up off the floor into a bridge position. To do this, you push from your heels to lift your butt off the floor. At the top of the movement, pause and squeeze your glutes, then gently lower back down.

Tip: Don’t push up too high, as this will stress your lower back. Make sure your body weight is distributed through your heels and upper back. At no time should you feel like your body weight is on your neck.


The deadlift is an excellent exercise for your hamstrings (back of your legs), butt and your lower back. Because this move involves a forward leaning stance, good form is essential to keep your body safe and to get the maximum benefits from this exercise.

How to do it: Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart and place your hands on your thighs. Keeping your back flat with a neutral spine, engage your core muscles and push your hips back as you lower your torso. Let your hands slide down to your shins, or as far as you can go while keeping a flat back. With your body weight on your heels, begin to rise back up squeezing your glutes at the top of the movement.

Next step: Master this movement without weights and then do it with dumbbells or a weighted bar, ensuring that you keep the weights close to your thighs. Don’t hyper extend your back. You can have a very slight bend in the knees as you go through this movement.

Tip: Have a trainer talk you through it at the gym, watch it in one of my training videos, or observe yourself doing it the mirror. Mastering this move takes a little bit of practice—but once you get it, it’s a perfect butt and leg toning exercise.
