Exercises to shape your bottom


Exercise 1
Position. Lying on your back, place your feet on a support so they're slightly raised.
Movement. Raise your bottom as high as you can then lower it to the floor without touching. Breathe out as you lift.
Repetitions. 3 to 4 sets of 20 reps.

Exercise 2
Position. On your knees, with your elbows on the floor. Keep your head in line with the rest of your body so you don't strain your neck.
Movement. Pull in your stomach, then raise one leg in the air, keeping it bent for as long as you can, and slowly lower the knee to the floor without resting it. Exhale to raise and inhale to lower.  
Repetitions. 3 to 4 sets of 20 reps on each side.
