This article is brought to you as a salute to our favorite Bubble Butt pants. Not only that we deliver pants that naturally enhance the female curves and accentuate your butt and thighs (you can read more about it HERE), but we also prepared a series of TOP 5 exercises for these particular areas. We approached our #NEBBIAathlete, Valerija Slapnik, and asked what her favourite workout for butt and thighs is and what exercises she considers the most effective.
Valerija wrote everything down, explained each exercise, and described the correct techniques. So get ready, put on some NEBBIA outfit, and follow this home workout step by step.
1) Curtsy lunges
Stand up with your feet hip-width apart. Take a big step back with your left leg, crossing it behind your right leg. Bend your knees and lower your hips until your right thigh is nearly parallel to the floor. Keep your torso upright. Go back to starting position. Repeat with another leg. Or you can do it with the same leg repeatedly. Depends on you.
Lay flat on your back, make sure your lower body touches the floor. Bend your knees, and your feet should be about hip-width apart. Push through your heels to lift your hips while squeezing your booty. Pause for 1-2 seconds and return to starting position.
3) Abduction with bands
Sit with a band around your upper knees on the chair. Keep your torso straight. Open legs slowly, and try to hold in position for a second or two. That is your end position. Return to a starting position and repeat more times. In the end, I also do pumps, which is doing faster with half reps, and no hold at the end position.
4) Stiff deadlift
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell/kettlebell in an overhand grip. Your knees should be slightly bent. Bent at your hips and lower the kettlebell, keeping your back straight. Your head is in the line of your back! Feel the tension in the hamstrings. Go back into starting position by squeezing your booty, and don’t move your hips in front.
5) Sumo squat
Stand with your hip a bit wider than hip-width apart. Turn your feet out. With your hands holding a dumbbell/kettlebell, push your hips back and squat down, keeping your back straight and upper body lifted. Then go back into starting position.
Hopefully, you got inspired by these simple and sweet exercises, and don't forget to include them in your next workout routine! However, if you want to wear something truly special that will perfectly highlight these areas and shape your butt and thighs right now, our Bubble Butts are a way to go!
