Butt Squeezes

This butt workout move works to tighten your tushy while you're sitting down!


Sit in your chair with good posture (back straight), looking straight ahead. Then simply clench your butt muscles, squeezing your cheeks as hard as you can. Hold for ten seconds, or as long as you can maintain a super-tight squeeze. Release and repeat.

Aim to do ten butt squeezes in a row.
