These are The Best Home Butt Workouts To Take That Booty And Tone It Up

Most people, when they exercise, want their "backside" (yes, I'm talking about the butt!) to look appealing.

After all, almost every magazine cover you see talks about how to get a sexy booty, right?

The issue with a lot of people is that they sit at a desk all day and, therefore, don't use their butt muscles very often.

People feel because they sit down on it all day, their butt becomes a bit flabby, which is quite possibly true.

So, how to get a bigger butt? Are there glute exercises and butt workouts that can be done for this flab issue?

Have no fear for there is always a way to tone it up, even when you don't think you can. There a couple of tips that you may (or may not) already be doing, but once you realize you're doing it, you can concentrate and do it better and more effectively.

Here are 2 of the best glute exercises for women and men that will give you a nice, toned, bigger butt. 

1. Calf Raises

This is one of the easiest butt workouts. Yes, this is supposed to be about glute workouts, but calf raises shape the whole leg, including the buttocks. All you need to do when you're standing in line somewhere, or waiting to get into someone's office, is to lift your heels and stand on the balls of your feet.

It's like standing on your tippy toes. No need to do it fast, as a matter of fact, count to five every time you do it. Raise your heels, count to five, then lower them. Repeat this several times. Do it at least 3-4 times a week.

Heck, you can even do this butt workout on your coffee break. If you don't have time for butt exercises at the gym, it's a great addition to your home workouts.

2. Wall Squats

This is one of the best butt exercises, but may take a bit more action. While you're waiting for your food to heat up or are on hold while on the phone, go stand against the wall. Yes, stand.

Now, start off by keeping your feet about shoulder distance apart and about 2-3 feet away from the wall, and your back flat against the wall, start to lower yourself (by bending at the knees). 

Ideally, you want to get so your thighs are parallel to the ground with a 90-degree bend on the knees.

I'll admit, this booty workout is tough to get to. So, bending down a bit to start off with will be great for you! Hold this pose for about 20-30 seconds at a time.

Eventually, you'll be going lower and lower, which is what you should strive for if you want to take that booty and tone it up. If you need to, get a chair in front of you and use it for leverage to help you go deeper into the exercise. 

Now, keep in mind, when you start doing these butt exercises, or any exercises for that matter, you'll start feeling new muscles and you will be sore! But that's the way it's supposed to happen, so let not your heart be troubled, OK?

There you go, two of the best butt workouts to make your booty look better. Keep in mind, it won't happen overnight, but if you do these 4-5 times a week, along with some clean eating, in a couple weeks, you'll be seeing and feeling results.
