Day 70: At-Work Butt Workout

Fitness expert Cindy Whitmarsh has provided us with a Wednesday workout that will firm your butt.
 
Get your coworkers involved with this butt workout – it just takes five minutes! Try doing it on the hour, every hour. Come on – you can do it!
 
Do each exercise for an entire minute.
 
Squats: Start in standing position. Sit back, like you're sitting in a chair, and lift back up squeezing your glutes as you lift. Make sure your knees don't go out farther than your toes, and you don't go deeper than ninety degrees. 
 
Squats with alternating knee lifts: Same squat as above, but as you lift, alternate your knees to your chest.
 
Plié squats: Stand behind your chair, hold onto it, and place your feet shoulder-width apart. Turn your toes and knees out. Keep your spine straight and bend your knees down to a ninety-degree angle. Come back up as you squeeze your butt. 
 
Alternating forward lunges: Lunge forward, keeping your knee over your ankle and your weight on the heel that's lunging. Keep your body upright and squeeze your glutes as you go.
 
Pulse squats: Same as the first squat, but hold at the bottom of the squat and pulse your glutes.
 
Stretch when you've completed the series.
 
And, don't forget good nutrition! If you want to take it to the next level, try the free six-week Lose the Last Ten Pounds Challenge on my website
