A great exercise for toning the glutes (buttocks).
- Lie on your tummy on an exercise mat or on the floor. Place a Pilates ball between your ankles and place your forehead on your hands. Bend your knees approximately 90 degrees.
- Pull your belly button toward your spine to engage your core. Squeeze your glutes and push the soles of your feet toward the ceiling, lifting your knees slightly off the mat. Avoid letting your low back arch excessively.
Repeat 8-12 times, rest, then repeat the exercise if desired.
