FitnessRx Article: It's All About the Booty!

I wanted to share my very first FitnessRx article! I've been writing blogs for FitnessRx for several months, but I haven't written any articles until now. Sometimes I have a difficult time coming up with general topics for the blog, so I often ask my friends what kinds of articles they'd like to read in fitness magazines.

This past weekend, my friend Ani said she'd like to read an article about how to get a great booty. Since this is a great topic for all of us fitness-minded ladies, I wrote an article about it.


Do each set of exercises three times and then move on to the next set.

Set 1
15 Kneeling glute kickbacks
20 Bodyweight squats

Set 2
15 Standing cable glute kickbacks
10 Bodyweight walking glute lunges (10 each leg)

Set 3
10 Adductor isolation (sit forward in the seat and really squeeze your glutes with each rep)
15 Bodyweight curtsy lunges (10 each leg)

If you need to add more reps to the plyos in order to increase your heart rate, add more. But remember to squeeze your glutes with each rep for all of the exercises.

When you’re finished with the workout, spend some quality time on the stepmill or the stair stepper. Both of those machines also target the glutes and will help shape your lower body to be tight, lean, and toned.


Give the workout a try and let me know how it goes! And check out the full article on!
