Want to firm, lift, tighten and tone your butt with one easy exercise you can do anywhere?
This one exercise can be done anywhere to firm, lift, tighten and tone your butt and has lots of variations to go with it.
‘Basic Bridge’, or Pelvic Curl as its known, works your main butt muscle (glute max), your hamstrings and also helps strengthen your pelvic floor and one of those exercises you can feel working as soon as you start doing it.
As you press your hip bones upwards be sure to draw your belly button in towards your spine to activate and engage your core as you press up through the soles of your to help raise your hip bones towards the sky.
Try and keep a straight line from your chest to your hip bones to your knees. Lower back down. Repeat.

To advance the basic Bridge or Pelvic Curl exercise further, lift one foot off the ground at the top of the exercise, hold, then replace to the ground and lower your body
back down slowly. Balance yourself by pressing down strongly through the sole of the foot of your supporting leg to really help firm and strengthen your butt. Remember you’re aiming for a straight line from your chest to your hip bones to your knees when you raise your body up so press strongly through the soles of your feet to really strengthen and tone your butt.
