How to Do a Curtsy Lunge

The Lunge Variation That Shapes and Lifts Your Butt

Lunges are a lower-body staple if you're looking for a strong, sculpted backside. But for an even perkier butt, try this minor variation in your lunging routine. The curtsy lunge targets your inner thighs as well as your glute medius, a smaller butt muscle that helps stabilize hips to help improve your posture. The result? You look taller and thinner, with a rounder backside as well. Basically, this move is one you need in your shape-up routine. Learn how to do the backside-boosting lunge variation below.

  • Start from standing, and step your left leg behind you and to the right so your thighs cross, bending both knees as if you were curtsying. Make sure your front knee is aligned with your front ankle.
  • Return to standing, and switch sides to complete one rep.
  • Do three sets of 12 to 15 reps.
