Fitness tip of the week: Get your glutes in gear!

April 12, 2013 at 11:10 am

Get your glutes in gear. Get on the floor on your hands and knees. Extend one leg and bend it to a 90-degree angle, raising it so that your toe points toward the ceiling. Bring the leg back down and repeat for 12 repetitions, then switch to the other leg. To maximize results, make sure you squeeze your glutes tight as you do it. Keep it up and pretty soon you’ll be working that backside into a smaller pair of jeans.
