BUTT EXERCISES YOU CAN DO ANYWHERE!

Work your glutes anytime, by contracting and releasing your glute muscles continuously for 2 minutes at a time while you’re sitting, e.g. at your desk or on the way to work. An exercise you can do whilst standing, is to hold a chair and perform side lifts. You can do this when you’re on the phone for example or watching TV. There’s no reason not to multi-task!

  1. The outer thighs are the abductors (not adductors). The inner thighs are the adductors. (See exercises #5 and #6.)

  2. There shoud be pictures showing how some o the exercises are done. In #1 i couldt tell whether tyou lif our leg tward your chest or extend it backwards. But overall its somewhat helpful.

    • Type in Youtube or google image finder and you won’t have problem. You can also find photos or videos of how exercis. Just put a little effort in it. e is done by yourself, and they will be as good as ones they put

  3. Some pictures or a video showing the correct way of exercising will be great!

  4. worthless post. Why are there no images or animated gifs of the exercises?

  5. This is great, Thank you! Do you have any videos you can show as an example? I looked through youtube and couldnt find the work out for the “KNEELING GLUTE LIFT WITH PULSES”. Im not sure what I am supposed to be doing. Thanks!
