WITH TONS OF NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS UNDERWAY,LENT, AND FASTING..I THOUGHT I’D SHARE AN ARTICLE THAT I READ IN VOGUE .  WHO DOESN’T WANT THE PERFECT DERRIERE? MY BESTEST HAS BEEN DOING SPIN AND HER BOOTY IS STANDING AT ATTENTION.  FOR ME, RUNNING/SQUATS NORMALLY DO THE TRICK.  BUT I’M ALWAYS UP FOR NEW TRICKS..

Here are a few moves Morales recommends to get you booty-short-worthy by spring.

At the gym or at home, perform these exercises with weights and a stability ball three times a week, increasing the weight weekly.
 
1. Single Leg Squat:
Start by facing away from an eighteen- to 24-inch box and lift one foot slightly off the ground in front of you, keeping all weight on the heel of supporting leg. Clench your butt and slowly sit down in the center of the box. Push tall through the heel, tuck tailbone, and clench one glute, returning to a standing position. Repeat ten to twelve times.
 
2. Stability Ball Triceps, Chest Fly, and Chest Press:
Sit on a stability ball and walk your feet forward until your head, neck, and upper back are supported on ball, and buttocks, hamstrings, and legs are holding you steady. Perform fifteen triceps extensions (flexing and extending elbows), fifteen chest flies (long arm extension to your sides), and fifteen chest presses (flexing and extending both shoulders and elbows). The idea is to have the booty burn while you are being distracted by arm exercises.
 
3. Static Lunge Woodchops:
Holding a four- to eight-pound medicine ball, slide your right leg back into a lunge. While keeping all the weight on the left heel, take the ball with long arms in front of your right thigh, lift the ball overhead, and slowly lower back down to your right thigh, squeezing the buttocks of the back leg the whole time. Do ten reps and switch legs.
 
Anywhere, anytime moves:
1. While waiting on the subway platform or for a taxi, always tuck your tailbone to squeeze the buttocks
2. When waiting to cross the street, slide one long leg back, allowing you to squeeze a single glute.
3. When you go to sit down, clench your butt and lower down slowly and with control, landing as softly as possible. Every time you stand, place your weight on your heels, stand, and clench.
