3 Simple Moves to Whip Your Booty in Shape

July 22, 2015 2 min read

When the topic of glute training comes up, the majority of people think that squats and lunges are the go-to exercises. Especially with all the #squats on Instagram. While those are great to do, they're not the only exercises you should do. It's important to realize that the glutes help rotate your leg outwards, take it to the back and side. So it makes sense to to train in all those directions to make sure you're hitting all the muscles. If you only do squats and lunges you're missing out on a big chunk of muscle fibres. You don't need access to a gym or any weights for that matter. You can get a solid workout right in your living room. The key is training with enough frequency, doing the right exercises, with proper form. Also since you won't be using heavy weights, you can do these exercises more frequently, two to three days a week if you're able to. Make sure to focus on proper execution with these exercises to get the most out of them. If you're just starting out, start with two sets of 10 to 20 repetitions and gradually work your way up to three or more sets. Also, if you're a beginner you might not feel these in your glutes right away. The more repetitions you do the better you will get at activating the muscles and you'll start to feel more of a burn. Hip Thrusts For the hip thrust, place your shoulder blades on a chair, bench or couch with your feet hip width apart. Drive your hips up and focus on flexing your glutes, not hyperextending your back. You should feel this in your glutes not your lower back. In the finished position with your hips up, your shins should be vertical. If they're not, move your feet forward or back. Lower your hips to the floor and repeat. booty exercise                           Seated Band Abductions Seated band abductions are great for developing the outer-side of the hips. For these, sit on the edge of a chair or couch with a resistance band just below the knees and place your feet wider than hip width. Push your knees out as far as you can, hold it for a moment. Bring your knees close to each other under control and repeat. booty exercise Single Leg Glute Bridges For this exercise, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat and hip width on the floor. Raise one foot off the ground and brace your abs. Pushing through your heel, drive your hips up flexing your glute. It's important in this exercise as well to not arch your lower back as you raise your hips. booty exercise The best exercises or workout routine won't get your results without consistency. When you add in new exercises keep them in your program for at least four to eight weeks to see changes. As you progress you can increase the number of sets and repetitions and also use heavier bands. If you've only been doing squats, lunges and deadlifts until now, these exercises will work your butt in a whole new way. Photos/Article courtesy of Kia Khadem

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
