Booty building

Booty building

One of the perks of working out 5 times a week, besides a healthy body and mind, is having a great booty. A booty so great, in fact, that I didn’t hesitate to show it off during my own catwalk show the other day! I asked my trainer and booty icon, Canadian dancer Samantha Newman, to share a highlight from her BOOTYBUILDING101 classes.

“When it comes to training your booty during your holiday, I am a huge advocate of using a resistance band: it’s so easy to travel with and adds a whole new level of burn to all your exercises,” she told me. “Try some ‘frog hip thrusts’; they are perfect for isolating the glutes. Loop the band around something stationary like the leg of your bed. Step into the loop and position the band across the front of your hips. Hinge at the hips as you sit back and activate that squeeze from the bottom of the movement to the upright position. Repeat 15 times for 3 sets and enjoy the burn!”
