So, you have been working hard, doing squats, but your butt is still not lifted.

It’s closing in on summer, and all you want is to get the butt tighten, toned, and lifted, so you can feel great when you’re rocking that swimsuit.

Here is a seven day challenge starting at 10 reps a day and increasing to 40 reps by the seventh day. Try it out to give your butt the lift that it needs.

Move one- Donkey kicks

How to: Start on all fours with your hands shoulder-width apart and knees hip-width apart. Flex your right foot, bend at the knee, and raise your leg so that you are pressing your heel towards the ceiling. Keep raising your leg until your heel is over your butt while squeezing your glutes then slowly lowering your leg back down without touching your knee to the ground. Continue for ten reps each leg.

Move two- Skater lunges

How to: You will start by doing a reverse lunge bending the right (back) leg at an angle. Leap to the left moving the left backwards only tapping your toe then jumping to the right repeating the process for ten reps.

Keep your knees bent staying low for the entire workout.

Move three- Glute bridges

How to: Lie on your back with your knees bent, and feet flat on the floor. Raise at the hips until you form a straight line with your body. Take a pause, then lower your hips back to start position.

Move four- Lunge kicks

How to: Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, and your arms by your sides. Lunge forward with the left leg while singing the right arm forward and left arm back. Return to start position and switch to right leg. Do ten reps.

Move five- Squat jumps

How to: Squat down as low as you can keeping your knees behind your toes. Then jump as high as you can coming gently back down into a squat. Repeat for 10 reps.
