Health and Fitness Tip – Office Exercises to Get That Sexy Butt!

Most people, when they exercise, are wanting their “back side” (yes, I’m talking about the BUTT!) to look appealing.

The issue with a lot of people is they sit at a desk all day and, therefore, don’t use their butt muscles very often.

People feel because they sit down on it all day, their butt becomes a bit flabby, which is quite possibly true.

So, what can be done to increase the muscle tone of the gluteus maximus? Are there exercises that can be done for this flab issue?

Have no fear, there is always a way to do some toning, even when you don’t think you can. I’ll outline a couple of tips that you may (or may not) already be doing, but once you realize you’re doing it, you can concentrate and do it better and more effectively.

One of the easiest ones is to do calf raises. Yes, I know this is supposed to be about the exercising your butt, but calf raises shape the whole leg, including hitting the butt as well. All you need to do is when you’re standing in line somewhere, or waiting to get into someone’s office, is to lift your heels and stand on the ball of your foot…. well both feet. It’s like standing on your tippy toes. No need to do it fast, matter of fact, count to five every time you do it. Raise your heels, count to five, then lower them. Repeat this several times. Do it at least 3-4 times a week. Heck, you can even do this on your coffee break.

Here’s one that may take a bit more action. While you’re waiting for your food to heat up or even on hold while on the phone, go stand against the wall. Yes, I said STAND. Now, keeping your feet about shoulder distance apart and your back flat against the wall, start to lower yourself (by bending at the knees). These are called wall squats.

Ideally, you want to get so your thighs are parallel to the ground with a 90 degree bend on the knees. I’ll admit, that one is tough to get to (I’m not there yet). So, bending down a bit to start off with will be great for you! Hold this pose for about 20-30 seconds at a time. Eventually, you’ll be going lower and lower, which is what you should strive for.

There you go, two great ways to make your “back side” look better.
