Bridges. Start flat on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor hip-width apart.

Squats. So many squats, so little time. Each kind of squat works different aspects of your glutes, so it is beneficial to switch them up to get the benefit of each kind. For the standard squat, start with your legs shoulder-width apart and then lower down as if you were sitting in an imaginary chair until your butt is parallel to the ground. Your heels should not lift up or you will need to widen your stance. To do the Plié Squat, start with your legs wide, at least 3-feet apart and do the same movement. Start out doing 40 squats a day until you are doing at least 100-150 squats a day.
Lunges. Lunges help create that awesome C-shaped bootilicious butt. To begin, start in a standing position and keep your upper body straight and then step forward with one leg and lower your hips until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. Your front knee needs to be directly above your ankle making sure not to let the lowered knee touch the floor. Do 3 sets of 10 reps on each leg.
Box Jumps. Start jumping on a 12-inch box or a sturdy bench. Jump up onto the box with both legs together in one fluid motion. Do 10 jumps, rest for 1 minute, and do 10 more. Do five rounds of jumps per day. As you get more advanced, increase the height of the box.
