These 5 Simple Moves Combine Cardio, Core, and Booty Work
There are butt exercises, and then there are ab exercises, and then there are the exercises that waste no time and cut to the chase — they work the abs and butt all at once. Pressed for time and looking to shape up your rear and lean your core? Look no further.
This simple, fast, five-move circuit has helpful GIFs to show you how each move works. Add this into your routine anywhere, anytime, equipment-free to get your heart rate up and your body toned.
Keeping your core stable is challenging in itself, but when you compound it with a bit of glute-burning jumps, you're getting a killer workout with one move.
Reverse Lunge Kick
Because this move requires control and good form, it works the whole body. It also targets hip flexors and hamstrings, which protect the low back and help with core stability.
Knees and Toes
The lower abs are a little tougher to work, but this move totally burns 'em . . . all while you get a good leg workout, too!
Sliding Mountain Climbers
Bringing your knees toward your chest will work the booty while you're already working that stable core in plank position. Use hand towels if you don't have slider discs at home.
Treat this move like a standing crunch while keeping your core tight, and you'll get a booty-ab combo move that'll leave you sore in the best way (with a great blast of cardio!).
