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 am the catcher on my softball team. I get plenty of squats on Sunday! I need to start doing them everyday though!

I don't usually work on my glutes. But it's worth a shot!

For some reason my butt is the last of my worries. Maybe because I can't really see it, lol.

I do lunges and squats. A shapley butt is no more a prioriety than any other body part. I am mainly looking for an all over slim down/tone up.
