Tone Up Your Butt With Pilates Butt Exercises

If you want a firm and toned butt then the only effective way is exercise. A perfectly shaped butt not only enhances your beauty but also boosts your confidence during public appearances.

Getting a toned butt is not at all a hard task. All that you need is the right buttock exercises to burn the excess fat and tone up the muscles of that area.

The fact is that spot burning is quite impossible but you have to pay extra attention on butt and thighs to make them firm and shapely. Pilates is a good option for toning your whole body. Moreover, it gives you flexibility too. Try these Pilates exercises to get a perfectly stunning butt.

Pelvic Curl

First lie on your back, keep your knees bent and place your feet flat on the floor. Start exhaling while doing a pelvic tilt. Try to push your bellybutton down towards the spine by engaging your abdominal muscles. Now inhale and press down to make your tailbone curl up using your feet. First raise your hips, then your lower spine and at last the middle spine.

Your aim is to make a straight line from hip to shoulder by coming up to the lower part of your shoulder. Exhale and take back your spine to the floor starting from the upper back. Inhale and go back to the neutral position. You should repeat it three to five times.

Heel Beats

Lie down on your stomach and place your forehead on your hands. Keep the legs together and straight. Now try to lift your abdominal muscles up and slowly turn your legs out a little at the hips, keeping the heels together. Stay in this position and it will send a lengthening energy down to your legs.

Now, lift your legs from the floor by using this energy. Rapidly beat your heels together and away. Try to do at least 10 beats and repeat the whole process by taking rest in between.
