Lunges for a Rock Hard Butt

brazilian_buttButt shaping lunges are one of the best exercises for that rock hard butt all women want. Lunges will give every woman a nice firm shapely butt that they desire.

A shapely butt is usually only seen on a few privileged women. But, not anymore! Below are four great lunge exercises that will literally get your butt in rock hard shape!

Lunges

The lunge is a GREAT butt-builder. Next to squats, lunges are the next best thing for shaping your butt. Besides being a great butt builder the lunge also works the quads, hamstrings and calves. So like squats, when done correctly you get more bang for your buck.

Forward Lunge

Performing Forward Lunge:

Key points to remember are not to move your front knee past your toes, and your back knee should come CLOSE to the ground, but not TOUCH it.

  • With feet hip-width apart and side by side, take a big step forward and slowly bend your knees so that both knees are at a 90 degree angle.
  • Pause for a count, then step back and stand up in the starting position.
  • Repeat with the other leg, or do all repetitions on one leg, then the rest on the other. lunges 

Reverse Lunge

This butt sculpting exercise is the identical to the forward lunge, but instead of stepping forward, you are taking a big step behind you. The reverse lunge focuses a bit more on the gluteal muscles and adds variety to your workout. Lunges either forward or reverse are great ways to improve hip flexibility and mobility.

Performing Reverse Lunge:

The starting position for this is the same as in the forward lunge, instead of stepping forward take a giant step backwards. Remember to keep your front knee behind or over your toes and don't let the back knee touch the ground.

Side Lunge

This variation focuses on the gluteus medius and minimus (hips) and hits the dreaded inner-thigh area as well.

Performing Side Lunge: 

  • Stand with feet together, take a wide step to the side and slowly bend the outside knee to lower your body toward the floor. The shin should stay straight up and down and the feet should remain facing forward. Be sure to keep your back straight and your chest up while lowering yourself to the bottom of the movement.
  • Pause for a count, then rise back up by straightening the knee ending up at the starting position.
  • Repeat on the other leg, or do all reps on one leg then switch to the other.

Walking Lung

Walking lunges are a great way to tone your butt and the walking lung can be done anywhere. When doing walking lunges, you should try to deliver the power needed to get back up through your heel, this way makes it easier for you to put the emphasis on your butt.

Performing Walking Lung:

  • Walking lunges are just like regular lunges but you don't go backwards and up again, instead you step forward straight to another lunge with your other foot. For more resistance you should try walking lunges uphill, it makes your butt workout even more.

Bottom Line on Butt Shaping Lunges

When building and shaping your butt the lunge is an excellent exercise choice. However, exercise alone is not going to give you a sexy butt. If you want a sexy butt you need to watch your diet and burn the fat. Muscle development is only part of the equation.
