You Better Work it Hard if You Want These Celeb-worthy Behinds
Scroll through social media for famous booty shots of Kim, Kourtney, Michael Jordan and Channing Tatum to confirm the behind is possibly the most talked-about asset in Hollywood. Strong glutes have obvious benefits: they prevent lower-back pain, improve posture and increase athletic performance. Celebs manage to get their perfect backsides with their favorite booty-building secrets, which we present to you here…
Britney Spears keeps her camera-ready behind strong enough to keep up with her two energetic sons. Spears works her glutes with jump squats, kettlebell swings, rapid lateral leg lifts with a resistance band, single-leg bicycle crunches on a BOSU ball, one-leg downward dog with some crunches, seated split stretches and classic glute kickbacks. Add weights or resistance to exercises like kickbacks and hip thrusters to activate all three glute muscles.
Sofia Vergara stays in shape despite being 45, with one of the most envied bodies in Hollywood. To tone her backside, the actress loves doing high-knee step-ups because they challenge balance, forcing each muscle to work individually with 10 to 20 reps on each leg three times a week. Step-ups are great for building stronger glutes, with variety being key, pair this exercise with multi-joint movements like squats and different types of lunges or adding weights.
Jennifer Lopez has genetics on her side, but she works to enhance the shape of her derrière as well as tone and tighten, with squats and lunges using weights galore. Moves like twisting lunges and a variety of squats from different angles are also awesome tips, plus utilizing mixed weights, bands, lunges, squats, and adding in cardio is recommended.
Jake Gyllenhaal trained for his role as a boxer for Southpaw for five months, six hours daily with a gruelling routine: running eight miles every morning, followed by body-weight exercises, sparring and twice-a-day training sessions in the boxing ring. The average guy should keep the training intense with jump squats, sprints, box jumps, deadlifts, walking lunges, and squats.
