Personal Trainer Portland | Great Butt Exercises | Simple Moves

Everyone wants to have a nice looking backside, so here are simple moves you can do at the gym with your workout buddy, by yourself or with your professional personal trainer Portland motivator. Here is a list of 7 exercises you can do to help shape that butt!

1. Straight Leg Deadlifts – this takes some time to get, but with practice you can do it.
2. Step-Ups – You will need a 12, 16 or 18 inch platform to step up on. I would recommend starting out with your body weight and then progressing with external dumbbell weight.
3. Single leg Squat Jumps – You are balancing on leg and then hopping laterally to the other. If you tend to have weak ankles or are recovering from any knee issues, stick to just balancing on leg and do a simple squat.
4. Stability Ball Hamstring Curls – You can do this with one or both legs.
5. Kettle Bell Swings with a Mini Squat – make sure you are using your legs on not your entire lower, middle and upper back to move the weight up.
6. Lateral Steps using Ankle Tubing – this is going to work your abductors to really strengthen and tighten those outer thigh/hip muscles.
7. Single Leg Squat from a Bench or Chair – You want to squat up with one leg from a chair or bench and then back down.

You can always modify these exercises to adjust to fitness levels, so be safe and have fun.
