Hop To It
For a tight, shapely rear, nothing beats 1-legged hops. The starting position is similar to running, but take you’ll need to take away a leg. The arm pumping motion will be the same as in running and you should try to keep your torso as upright as possible.
Beginners should take small hops at first and be careful to land with their knees aligned with their toes. 10 seconds per set for each leg should do the trick. Work up to 4 sets.
The exercise forces the glute of the support leg to work twice as hard as usual, thus creating the cheek shape that we all crave. Happy hopping!
