Plenty of people store a bit of excess fat in their glutes.
While having fat there is usually pretty normal, you can tell when it’s a bit too much.
Having some muscle behind that fat can make your glutes firmer, and it also helps a lot with day to day life in terms of mobility.
There are plenty of ways to tone up your buttocks with simple bodyweight exercises and minor weightlifting.
One fun way to tone up your glutes is through swimming.
Swimming is a surprisingly good form of cardio, as long as you’re actually doing it for exercise.
By swimming laps instead of just floating around for a while, you’re actually doing a lot of cardio. It’s pretty low-impact work so you don’t feel as sore, but you do get the benefits.
Swimming combines using your glutes as you swim with fat-burning cardio in order to give you a lot more definition.
Of course, there are plenty of bodyweight exercises that you can do at home as well.
Squats are by far the most important bodyweight exercises for toned glutes.
If done with proper form, you should feel it distinctly in your glutes when you drive up from the ground, and doing this for high amounts of reps will have you feeling sore in no time.
You can also add difficulty by holding a medicine ball or even doing weighted squats with a barbell and all.
Another exercise that’s great for your glutes is lunges. Lunges alone are great for your legs as a whole, and by doing twist lunges you can even get an ab workout in.
However, for your glutes, they’re fantastic.
They’re a bit lighter on your knees, and you’re actually moving while you do them, so it feels less static and boring.
You can hold dumbbells on either side of you while you do these for added intensity.
#4. The Glute Machine (At Your Local Gym)
You can’t go wrong with gym machines. When you walk around the machines at your gym, you’ll find that they’ll almost always have stickers on them telling you what body part this machine helps with, and how exactly to do the exercise.
Pay attention to these so that you save yourself from sitting there for minutes on end figuring out what body parts go where.
Find yourself a nice glute machine at your gym and get to work.
Chances are, it has one or two that you’ll find enjoyable enough.
