3 WALKING TIPS TO TONE UP THE PERFECT BOOTY

Toned booty do more than just make you look great in your stretch jeans. Toned buttock muscles provide support to your hip flexor, as well as help support the trunk of your body. 

Walking could help tone the glutes muscles, especially if you walk promptly, on hills or on a treadmill set to an incline setting.

1. ENGAGE YOUR GLUTES WHILE WALKING


Recruit your glutes by wheeling your foot from heel to toe with every step. Take a step forward, land on your heel and with a “sweeping” action, push through to the ball of your foot. 

When you make contact with the ground, squeeze your glutes muscles together. Push off the ball of your foot to propel yourself forward, releasing the squeeze. 

2. INCLINE YOUR TREADMILL


The unfortunate truth is that simply walking on level ground is not going to to fully engage your glutes muscles. If you're walking on a track, in the mall, or somewhere that is completely flat, you will still reap the many benefits of walking. 

You won't be working the muscles in your butt enough to really firm it up. So next time you are on a treadmill remember to incline it.

3. WALK BACKWARD


Don't lower that incline just yet: you can work your backside even further by walking backward on the treadmill. Turning around helps strengthen your glutes as well as calves and quads. 

Lower the speed to a very slow walking pace (2.5 miles per hour) and grab on to the handrails before you turn around.
