Every woman works towards the golden Kardashian standard of booty – we do endless squats and lunges to tone our legs and glutes perfectly, but those moves can be repetitive, boring, and really hard on your knees. So we found some low impact moves that are just as effective and will still make you feel the burn, without the unnecessary strain. Protect your body and perfect your booty with these ass-kicking moves!
1. Wall Bridge
A normal bridge can be hard on the knees, but a wall bridge is a modification that also kicks ass! Start with your rear against the wall and walk your feet about 4 feet up. Then raise and lower your pelvis with shoulder blades planted on the ground. Raise and lower your hips from the ground, intermittently pulsing.
2. Toe Reaches On Wall
Line your butt and heels up to the wall until your legs are straight and pressed flat against them. Lift your shoulder blades from the ground, and alternate arms reaching for the opposite toe. This will really wake up your core, and different parts of your legs
3. Plank Donkey Kick/Leg Lift
This is a full body move that’s way better than any squats and will tone you up in no time. A plank position combines with a leg lift – get into a plank (modify to forearms if necessary), then bend one leg 90 degrees, and pulse with your heel towards your booty and a flexed foot, kicking the ceiling. Sort of like a reverse mountain climber. Then switch legs.
