If you’re thinking of toning your muscles before summer comes, then working on your butt is a must. You use these muscles so much throughout the day. You squat to grab something, stand and walk, climb stairs, and so much more. And if you’re someone who doesn’t have time to go to the gym, then these 5 easy butt workouts are great for you.

And that’s why I’ve pulled out some of the best ways to get a great butt in no time. These are exercises that are all easy to do, have great results, and you can do from the comfort of your own home. Sound great right? So check them out and let me know what you think!

Single-Leg Glute Bridge

What you’ll love about this exercise is that there’s no equipment needed — that means no excuses! And to begin, lay on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor roughly shoulder-width apart.

Extend one leg straight up and make a bridge by lifting your hips and butt off the ground, using the glutes to drive the pelvis upwards.

Then lower back down to the ground, keeping your lifted leg extended out straight. Repeat without touching the ground to complete one rep and then switch legs and repeat on the other side.

Side Skaters

Stand straight with feet together, then crouch down by pushing hips back, keeping back flat and abs engaged. Jump sideways to the right, landing on your right leg. Repeat in reverse direction and complete one rep.

Squat with Kick-Back

Start by standing straight with your legs and shoulder-width apart. Sit back to a squat, bringing your fists close to your chin and then bring your left leg straight behind you while extending your arms forward. Return to the squat position, then repeat on the other side.

As you squat, remember to keep your weight on your heels. When extending the leg behind you, keep your hips square — don’t twist them toward the side.

Chair Squat Jump

This next exercise is perfect even while you’re watching Netflix. You’ll just need a chair or couch for this workout. All you have to do is sit on a chair with back straight and feet hip-width apart. Jump straight up, use your glutes, and make sure both feet come off the ground. Drop and gently squat to sit on the chair.

Bear Plank Leg Lifts

Lastly, to end your butt exercise, begin in a plank position with your shoulders above your wrists and your back straight. Slowly lift your right leg and bend the knee 90 degrees, bringing your heel toward your butt. Push your heel upwards and extend your leg as far as you can squeezing your glutes together as you do so. Pause for 2-5 seconds before returning to the plank position and continue repeating with the other leg.


While guys focus on toning up their muscles and shedding a few pounds, we girls like to sculpt certain parts of ourselves, like the butt. It helps boost our confidence, but also keeps us fit and healthy. And with these five butt exercises from the list above, your glutes will be in shape in no time. So give them a try and let me know what you think!

Now if you have any butt exercises that you know of yourself, let me know in the comments down below, I’d love to hear about them!
