The start of 2017 has got us thinking about the BOOTY! A tight, perky tush is on our list for #fitgoals this year, and we have just the workout to get there! ;) Today, we’re sharing five moves to burn some major calories while sculpting the entire lower bod. We use 42 reps, but you don’t have to do them all at once. If you need to take a breather or rest your muscles, then do it, girl! It’s just about getting them all in, no matter how much you split the 42 reps up. These are all featured from our brand new Tone It Up Challenge to make this year the healthiest, fittest one yet! You can still sign up HERE for the Challenge and receive your free starter pack to get ya started. You’ll join thousands of women who are behind you every step of the way (including us!).

And don’t forget about your post workout routine! After these moves, we want you refueling with a 4:1 mixture of carbohydrates to proteins. The easiest (and tastiest!) way to get these nutrients in is with an organic, non-GMO Perfect Fit Smoothie. We have an easy-to-follow guide for making the tastiest smoothie eva HERE!

Now, it’s time to sweat!!

Side Lunge


What: Tones, quads and booty!

How: Begin standing with your feet together. Engage your core as you step your left leg out to the side. Land softly and bend into a side lunge, left leg bent, right leg straight, making sure your knee doesn’t go past your toe. Push off with your left leg to return to start.

Complete 42 reps, then switch sides.

Dumbbell Swing


What: Sculpts booty, quads, shoulders and core!

How: Stand with legs wider than shoulder-width distance, feet angled at 45 degrees while holding a dumbbell with your right hand. Sit back as you lower the dumbbell between your legs. Make sure your knees don’t go past your toes. Push your hips forward as you stand up and swing the dumbbell so that your arm is parallel to the ground. Switch hands so that you’re holding the dumbbell with your left hand and repeat the movement.

Complete 42 total reps, 21 on each side.

Deep Squat


What: Tones booty and quads!

How: Begin standing with feet hip-width apart, holding two dumbbells by your chest. Sit back as deep as you can while making sure your knees don’t go past your toes and back doesn’t arch past neutral. Try to touch your elbows to your knees. Return to starting position.

Complete 42 reps.

Tabletop Curtsy


What: Strengthens hamstrings, booty and outer booty!

How: Begin in a tabletop position, hands directly below shoulders, one dumbbell tucked in the bend of your right knee, right leg raised. Slowly lower your right leg down and to the left, gently touching your left leg. Raise your right leg back to start, using your booty to lift your leg even higher.

Complete 42 reps, then switch sides.

Hip Swivels


What: Tones booty and core!

How: Begin in a bridge position, holding two weights by your hips. Tilt your hips to the right, then switch and tilt to the left.
