Great Exercises for a Great Looking Butt

10 — Plie

A combination of a stretching exercise and a squat, this simple yet effective move helps tone and burn fat while strengthening the body's core, legs, and improving your balance. Easy to do and simple to add to any routine, the Plie is a must have for any butt toning routine. Spread your legs out wider than your shoulders and with your arms out to the side or in front of you, slowly lower into as low a squat as you can, hold it, then slowly stand back up.

9 — Ball and Wall Lean

With a yoga ball at your back, lean against a wall. Be sure you keep your legs bent as if sitting in a chair. Lean back against the ball only enough to keep it from falling. Let your back and butt muscles keep you upright! The burn will be in your thighs and butt and over time, you will come to rely on your weight against the ball less and less and you will be able to keep yourself balanced on your own.

8 — Leg Raise

This move is done by lifting your legs up in front of you or by pulling your knee up to your chest one at a time. This strengthens the back and butt and also helps tone the legs and stomach all at the same time! The leg raise is also another great beginner exercise that can help strengthen and tone the butt and strengthen the back to get prepared for more intense routines.
