The fitness world is flooded with endless ways to sculpt your butt. However, the problem with most of these routines is that no one is talking about posture. And when your body isn’t aligned, all the squats in the world are not going to do much for your keister.
The key that so many workouts overlook is proper form that activates the deeper muscle groups that are responsible for a sculpted backside. This five-minute workout from Elev8d Fitness, the new home workout program from the experts at Sonima, shifts the body back into alignment and, as a result, isolates these key muscles. Give it a try! We promise a transformation.
Bent Knee Davincis | 10x Each Side
Stand with feet pointed straight ahead and wider than hip width. Squat down and hold. There should be an arch in your lower back. With active hands (fingers spread) and arms out to the side, flex to one direction and then flex to the other direction. Your head should maintain a static position, sliding along the same plane as your arms.
Squat Lateral Toe Touches | 5x Each Side
Lower into a deep squat position with your feet pointed straight ahead. Hold this position as you keep an arch in your lower back and your hips tilted forward. Reach your left leg to the left and touch the toes on the ground. Return to the deep squat position. Then reach your right leg to the right and touch the toes to the ground.
Lateral Burpees | 5x Each Side
Come to stand. Explode up in a jump. Land in a squat with your feet pointed straight ahead. Place your hands on the ground and jump your legs behind you and slightly to the left. Jump your feet back to your hands and explode up again. Land in a squat with your feet pointed straight ahead. Place your hands on the ground and jump your legs behind you and slightly to the right. Continue these three motions (explode up, squat down, jump your legs back and to one side).
