Exercising the leg muscles involves the butt too. So, if you are looking for the prime butt curves this is great workout to achieve that. Every woman in the world wants to have a firm and sexy look behind. There is no harm done if people want to look attractive. Not only will this exercise bring great looks, but it will also strengthen our lower body, strengthen the legs which later on will be capable of performing other lower body workouts. Here is how to perform the Glut Kicks.
Position your body on floor, facing down, with palms in front of you and knees touching the ground; the body should look like a table. In this initial position when the knees are in a 90 degree angle, move them up like you are trying to hit something above you. Once you reach the highest you can, lower down the leg to initial position but don’t touch the floor. Repeat the movement with the same leg. After you are don with couple of repetitions, do the same movements with the other leg.
Since this exercise requires each leg to make its own repetitions individually; and because you are not using any dumbbells, make as much as repetitions as you can in 3 sets. It is important that you don’t rush the exercise too much. No need for fast repetitions and quickly going through the exercise. Take your time and do the movements slowly.
When you are doing this exercise, try not to face forward; face your head to the floor; that way your upper body will form a straight line with the back. If you look forward (chin facing the floor) you’ll probably feel your neck getting tired more quickly than your leg.
Find a place in the gym (or at home) which can provide you enough room to perform the exercise. You probably don’t want to hit something behind you or someone. The trick is to imagine that you are hitting something (for pure motivational purposes), not actually kick something.
If you want to increase the level of the exercise, place a dumbbell behind your knee and it will add additional challenge to the leg movement. For starters, try to use a 1kg or 2 kg of dumbbells. If you feel more capable than that, place a heavier dumbbell.
