5 effective moves to tone your bum

Yes, there is a lot of squatting.

These moves will tone that bum in no time and give you the confidence to hit the beach in style.

If you haven’t got any dumbbells, don’t worry! Grab two cans from the kitchen cupboard instead. No excuses!

1. Dumbbell Squats
Holding a dumbbell in each hand, sit to a squat and raise again. Repeat 15-20 mins.

2. Wall Sit
Squat against a wall and hold for as long as you can. This will tone your thighs as well as your bum!

3. Lunge and Side Kick
Holding a dumbbell in each hand sit into a squat and on the way up kick on leg to the side. Repeat 10 times on each side. Screaming “HIYAA” as you kick is optional.

4. Donkey Kick
Facing forward on a mat balance on your hands and knees. Slowly bring one leg up behind you and point the sole of your foot toward the ceiling as much as you can. Repeat 10 times on each side.

5. Around the World Lunge
Going in a circle, “around the world”, lunge to the front, then to the side, the back and finally the front again. Repeat set about 5-10 times.
