All you’ll need is a resist band “booty band” and a kettle bell (weight varies depending on your strength.) Time to stop making excuses, let’s get started!!


Reverse Lunge to Knee Up

Let’s get our bodies warmed up with some reverse lunge to knee ups.

-This exercise works several muscles in the lower body including the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, calves and even your core muscles to some extent

-Never let your knee go over your toe when lunging down

-Make sure your heel on the front foot never lifts from the ground

3 sets of 12-15 reps


Curtsy Lunges

-For an even perkier booty, try this move in your lunging routine.

3 sets of 12-15 reps


Stability Ball Leg Lifts

-Lie on your belly, and hold an exercise ball between your feet.
