In my earlier posts in the Better Bottom series I offered you three exercises — Squat, Side Lunge,
and Step Up
— for toning and strengthening your glutes. If you’ve been doing well with these, you may be ready to move on to something more advanced. If you are just beginning to work up to it, use a chair or wall for support. To begin: Balance on one leg, keeping your chest high, and lower yourself to a sitting position. Pushing through the heel on the ground, raise your body up to standing. To increase intensity you can hold a medicine ball or dumbbell. Repeat on the other side.
