Butt toning while watching TV

Butt toning while watching TV

Making time for exercise is really important to me, I might not always get to the gym but that doesn't stop me from still achieving my exercise goals during the day whether it be ab toning first thing in the morning before I get out of bed, speed walking on the school run, 20-minute lunchtime HITT session or butt toning exercises in front of the TV, here are a few of my faves to help lift those cheeks :)

Before we begin there are 5 things to remember before exercising ...

  1. Start slow
  2. Quality not quantity 
  3. Mind-to-muscle
  4. Don‘t overdo it!
  5. Warm-up

Side leg lifts

Lay on your side in a straight line from head to toe, either rest your head in your hand or on your upper arm. Don’t let your hips roll forwards or backwards, use your non-supporting arm to stabilise you. Raise one leg up and back down again (this is one rep). When you’ve done all your reps on one side, turn to the other side and do the other leg. When you’ve done both legs once this is 1 set.

How to make it harder: Try pulsing (or half reps) at the top of the movement. Lift your leg up and do small (but controlled) up and down movements at the top of the exercise or add an ankle weight and keep the full range of movement.

Where you'll feel it: Your outer thighs and side butt.

How many should you do: 

  • Beginner: 2 sets of 20
  • Intermediate: 3 sets of 20
  • Advanced: 3 sets of 30

Start with your legs wide apart (6 inches wider than your shoulders) and your toes facing outwards (45 degrees). Keep your weight in your heels with your torso leaned slightly forward. Lower your body down and push your bottom back like you’re going to sit down, keep your back flat (don’t round it) and lower yourself down until your thighs are parallel with the floor, push up through your heels and don’t lock out your knees at the top.

How to make it harder: Come up onto your toes to further incorporate calves and core, add half reps at the bottom or hold a weight (kettlebell, dumbbell) and keep the full range of movement.

Where you'll feel it: Your butt and upper legs (glutes, quads and hamstrings)

How many should you do: 

  • Beginner: 2 sets of 15 
  • Intermediate: 3 sets of 15
  • Advanced: 4 sets of 15

Start with one leg stretched out in front of the other, toes facing forward, drop your body down slowly, at the bottom of the movement, the knee should be behind the toes, the knee should never go over the toes if this happens move your front foot further forward. Your bottom should be in the middle, slightly lean your torso forward to feel the exercise in your glutes more.

How to make it harder: Elevate your back leg (using a chair) or hold a dumbbell.

Where you'll feel it: butt (glutes) and upper leg (quads and hamstrings).

How many should you do:
