I never thought I’d have a ‘mom butt’, but the moment I gave birth my butt turned into a marshmallow-ey, jiggly-jello part of my body that I swore wasn’t mine! I actually remember telling my husband, ‘you have to feel this…this is not my butt. what happened?!’

Can any other mamas out there relate to this?!

What happened is my body started using my rear end as fat storage to produce breastmilk.

So I’ve s-l-o-w-l-y been rebuilding my booty over the past few months and wanted to share 6 of my favorite exercises that build, tone and sculpt the glutes!

This workout helps boost the booty by targeting major muscle groups in the lower body like the hamstrings, quads and of course your glutes. The best part, these 6 multifunctional, strength-building exercises translate into a full lower body that you can complete at-home in 20 minutes! All you need is a medium set of dumbbells and a bench or chair.

    • Hi Kristen! Great question, sorry I should have been more clear — it’s reps per side; so 20 per leg. Thanks for checking out the workout and I hope you enjoy this booty burner! xo-Lindsey
