Hi, I'm Juliet Kaska and this is butt lifts and toning exercises. Butt lifts lead to nice toned glutes and tight glutes means you are supporting your pelvis as well as aligning your spine. If you don't have tight strong glutes, you are more prone for injury. Doing butt lefts helps to strengthen these muscles as well as give your butt that cute perky look. Our first exercise for butt lifting and toning is going to be the squat with a reach. So stand with your feet hip width apart and bend your knees going down to a 90 degree angle or as deep as you can go and then on a quick shot put back, reach and then reach the same arm forward, come right back to the low squat, alternating to the other side, shoot back and forward. Alternate each time, trying to come right back to that 90 degree angle at the knee, alternating the arm and the leg each time, keeping your core strong and your chest lifted. Our next exercise for but lifting, we're going to take from our ballerina friends. It's a traditional ballet exercise called Arabasque. If you are lucky enough to have a ballet bar, great, if not, take a sturdy chair or a counter top, place your hands on top of it and you're going to be about seven to fifteen inches away from the counter, place your hands firmly on it and stand into a ballet first position, squeeze the inner thighs together and keep your chest lifted and on an inhale you're going to sweet your left leg back behind you squeezing your glutes and letting your chest lower but not collapse. Hold the Arabasque for four seconds squeezing through the glutes and then sweep it back down, repeating right away on the same side, hold, stretch out through that leg for four seconds and then sweep it down.
