Bodyweight Butt Exercise: Side Lunge to Curtsy Lunge

The Best Butt Exercise — and You Can Do It Anywhere

To reshape your backside, you need to work your butt from multiple angles to tone all your glute muscles. This combination move, mixing two basic lunges, does just that. And, best of all, it requires no equipment so you can do at home.

Side Lunge to Curtsy Lunge Combo

  • Step your right leg wide to the left, coming into a lateral lunge, bending your right knee. Keep your chest lifted and your weight in your right heel.
  • Push off with your right foot and cross the right leg behind your left, coming into a curtsy squat, bending both knees. This completes one rep.
  • Step out to the right, returning to your side lunge; continue alternating between these two moves for a total of 12 reps. Then repeat on the other side.
  • Aim to do two to three sets of 12 reps on each side. Follow up with a quick glute stretch to keep your hips flexible and strong.
