So you’ve decided you want a better butt, made a firm resolution and are already picturing the beautifully shaped behind that you’re going to have. But wait.. what about if you don’t have or can’t afford a gym membership? Never fear, because I have been busy for the past few weeks doing some research for you, to find the best home workouts for glutes.
In this article you’ll learn why home workouts are popular (and why they are my favorite), how you can build a better butt from home, and what workouts you can have a crack at that will get you the best-booty results that I know you are after. Here’s to forgetting about the gym!
What are Home Workouts?
A home workout is as simple as the name implies – it’s exercise that you can do at home. Of course you aren’t restricted to your own home though – you can do these out in the park, in a hotel room, at a gym (if you must), at a friends place… in my experience, the term ‘home workout’ simply implies that the workout can be completed with minimal equipment required.
Home Workouts are Becoming More Popular
Okay, I must admit, I jumped on the home workout bandwagon back in junior high.
I’d program the home VHS recorder to auto-record the early morning Aerobics which aired at some ungodly hour in the morning, then set my alarm for a slightly less ungodly hour and thump around in the lounge room with the TV on minimum volume trying not to wake up Mom and Dad.
So, you can see that I’ve been a fan of the old home workout routine since a young lass. And I love it! Let’s look at just some of the benefits:
- Minimal effort to get to and from a place to workout (simply just get off your butt) – so you can forget all those usual excuses!
- Less time required to workout, since travel times are non-existent.
- Don’t need to worry about making yourself look presentable to work out in public (hey, I frequently work out in my pyjamas if I want, how’s that for comfort?)
- It’s cheap – often no specialist equipment required.
- Don’t need to worry about how other’s perceive you, because you’re in the privacy of your own home.
- Can get great results!
Building a Better Butt From Home
Alright, so now that I’ve sold you on working out at home, let’s move on to what you really came here for – how to really hit the butt and work those glutes with home workouts.
If you want to build a better butt, you simply must work out the glutes. However, it’s worth noting that a lot of home workout programs are mostly whole-body or fat burning workouts, which are great for whole-body toning and general fitness, but may not meet your specific butt-beautifying requirements.
Never fear my friends, as I have been busily working away the past few weeks and slowly exercising my way through a host of home workouts that are more focused on the glutes and butt than your standard home workout program.
So, here is a list of some home workout programs that I have found so far that have a nice focus on working out the glutes and butt:
Home Workouts That Target the Glutes
- The Butt Bible
- Build A Butt
- Brazil Butt Lift
- Gluteus to the Maximus
- Naked Beauty: The Symulast Method (works to remove cellulite too!)
- Yoga Booty Ballet
- 30 Day Butt Lift
- Buns of Steel
- My Bikini Butt
- Bigger Better Butt
Jump on the Home Workout Wagon!
…It’s a great way to build better glutes! Don’t think that just because you’re not at the gym that you won’t get sore. During the past few weeks where I have been trialing all of these programs and workouts, my glutes have constantly had that after-workout soreness that you know means results are not far behind.
I’ve tried to list those workouts that I have found that pay a little bit more attention to working out the glutes and butt than your standard home workout program might.
Not only do these programs workout the glutes though, but most also pay some attention to the rest of the body, so you can be sure you’re getting a great workout for general health and fitness which will keep your whole body looking good (bikini body anyone?). Why not try some out and see how you like them?
I intend on posting the results of my trials in the future to list the best home workouts for the glutes that I have found, so stay tuned for that post!
Have you come across any home workouts which are great for the glutes? Let me know if I’m missing any, as I’m keen to try them all!
