🚨 Perkier Booty Workout
🚨 Side Glute Lift
Don’t forget to give your side booty some love! When the side booty, or gluteus medius is strong, your booty looks full and perky.
Here’s how: Start in a side plank position and drop your bottom knee to the mat or ground. Keeping your bottom hand planted, bring top hand to top hip. Keeping your extended leg active, begin to lift and lower at your own pace. Repeat for 10-15 lifts on each side.
Bonus challenge: At the end of your reps, keep the top leg lifted and draw little circles with your pointed toes. Try to do this for a minimum of 10 seconds on each side.
