Making sure you look extra presentable for that annual beach trip with the girls is one thing, but how do you think you'd fair if your bikini-clad butt were blown up on big screens across America? Got a little nervous, huh? That's exactly why we've got ultimate respect for Spring Breakers star Vanessa Hudgens, who's clearly got nothing to hide in terms of a perfectly shapely physique. (I mean, look at that thing! Damn, girl!)

"I think her healthy, toned look is something that we all aspire to have," says Lauren Weisman, mind body manager at Exhale Santa Monica, where Hudgens works out on a regular basis. The combo of core work, Pilates, ballet and yoga keeps her body looking extra fantastic.

"That's great," you're thinking, "but what does she do to keep her butt looking so darn perky?" According to Weisman, the answer lies with the Fold-Over Gluteal exercise, a move that lifts the glutes and lengthens hamstrings. The result? Discovering that magic balance between "lengthened leg and really rounded booty," says Weisman. We're sold.

Stand with your left foot under your left hip, making sure to keep a soft bend in your knee. Bend your body at a 90-degree angle with arms reaching out to the wall in front of you. Lengthen your right leg and lift it up to hip height. Lower it down to the floor, then repeat 10 times. Then with your right leg extended, lower and lift your leg one inch, 20 times. Repeat on your left leg.
