This Lunge Variation Lifts Your Butt and Makes You Look Skinnier

Lunges are a lower-body staple if you’re looking for a strong, sculpted backside. But for an even perkier butt, try this minor variation in your lunging routine. The curtsy lunge targets your inner thighs as well as your glute medius, a smaller butt muscle that helps stabilize hips to help improve your posture. The result? You look taller and thinner, with a rounder backside as well. Basically, this move is one you need in your Summer shape-up routine. Learn how to do the backside-boosting lunge variation below.

Start from standing, and step your left leg behind you and to the right so your thighs cross, bending both knees as if you were curtsying.Return to standing, and switch sides.Perform as many proper reps as possible for one minute.
