Best Home Workouts for Women

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

As a fitness professional for 32 years, one of the MAIN questions women tend to ask is "what are the best Butt exercises to do?"

With the right workout routine, you can increase the size or shape of your glutes, which helps create the appearance of a tighter, more lifted derriere. After all, a shapely rear is timeless.

Because we are sitting more every day, we tend to have a memory loss of out gluts! They need to stay firing all day to maintain their shape and ability to prevent back pain.

Additionally, weak glutes may be what’s preventing you from improving your 5K time or getting through a game of tennis by rolling your ankle. The glutes are the powerhouse for most of our lower- and full-body movements, from squats to jumping. If you want to increase your strength, power, stability, and limit the likelihood for injury, it is important to incorporate glute exercises into your workout. As a trainer and personal to women all over the US, I use some of the following workouts and ideas in my classes. Here are 10 great ones you can do below.

Add These Exercises to Your Workouts at Home or the Gym

You can get stronger, shapelier glutes with a few pieces of basic equipment and a handful of carefully selected butt exercises you can do at home — no gym membership or machines required. We sifted through dozens of Beachbody’s fitness programs and hand-picked some of the best exercises for glutes, including moves to tighten the buttocks and thighs as well as exercises to augment them.

If you are working out at home.. here are some of my most favorite workouts and links to home equipment below and what they do!

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and

arms at your sides.

  • Keeping your chest up, back flat, and, core engaged, take a large step forward with your right foot. Lower your body until your right thigh is parallel to the ground and your left knee is bent 90 degrees.

  • Extend your right arm out to the right, and bend your left elbow in front of your chest so that your left forearm points in the same direction as your right. This is the starting position.

  • Raise your body several inches then lower it, pulsing yourself upward a total of 3 times.

  • “Ginga,” or swing, to the left by pushing off your right foot and laterally jumping to the left. Land softly in a reverse orientation of the starting position: left foot forward, right foot back, arms pointing left. Follow with 3 pulses, and ginga right.

  • Repeat the sequence, completing equal reps on both sides.
