Spring Exercise Challenge Day 6: A Better Bottom ~BONUS DAY!

*BONUS DAY*
One member who replies to this post will be chosen at random to WIN a CafeMom Water Bottle!

Welcome to day 6 of the Spring Exercise Challenge!

If you are like most women, you want to have a cellulite free, aesthetically pleasing bottom.
While an argument can be made that cellulite is hereditary, you can take steps to slow and prevent it. For the majority of women, when weight is gained, fat first deposits on the butt and back of the thighs, contributing to cellulite. You can help to combat this by eating a clean diet, cardio training and zone targeting exercises.

The best exercises to burn fat and tone your glutes (butt muscles) are:

  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Bridges
  • Step-ups
  • Dead lifts

As shown in the video you can do an entire glute workout or just choose a few to incorporate into your daily workouts.

For today's challenge, do a complete glute workout. If you are a beginner, you can lessen the amount of reps you do.
Do you currently target your glutes using any of these exercises or other workouts?
How important is it to you to have a shapely bottom?

I can't do either lunges or squats because of my knees, but the other ones ( dead lifts and but lifts ) I can try .

Thanks for the work out out.  I've been focusing on my glutes more with my run training.

I have a love hate relationship with squats. I love what they do for me, but I hate doing them. I'lthough I do try to incorporate them into my workout as much as possible. I also love lunges, but only because I've been doing them since I was a teen and did fencing.
