Andrea: You know we talk about celebrities that have great bodies, Beyonce has the best bottom line. And I’m going to show you some exercise with the help of Carrie Williams to get your bottom line a little bit more of more of a lift. The first exercise Carrie I want you to show is the corner lounge and it’s with the Curtsies you may start their feet line, step behind and then reach down for that like you untie your shoe, bring it back up, step out to the side, step behind and curtsy. On this movement things you want to look for is keep the weight in the front foot, reach down work on that balance you’ll feel this knee outer hip and in the thigh that’s going to help whole up that backside one more, great job! Next exercise is the side lounge Carrie start with your feet together rest step out to that side bend the knee reach down come back up, reach those hands up and to the other side and push up. Keep going Carrie, on this exercise you want to do about 20 repetitions reach and push back, back in. Think about keeping the toes pointed forward and the knee behind the toe on that lounge, keep this nice and long it’s like straight here, reach and come back up and one more. The next exercise is going to be a leg lift just behind this really easy, stand on one foot, foot behind hold unto your ballet bar and lift the back leg straight up. You want to do about 30 sets now I know you’re going to think I’m crazy but when I was brushing my teeth this morning I was doing this exercise and then when I was taking out my make up and putting on lotion I did the other leg, so you can sneak this in to your day and build that better back side. Last exercise I’m going to have you get down the floor and you need a ball of some type, you’re going to want to get a round ball, it could be a softball. It could be a medicine ball feet upon the ball Carrie, length flat on the ground and lift your hips above the floor. You are going to hold this for about 30 seconds and then just rocket back and forth that little ball. You can really feel this burn up those hamstrings and gluts which lifts the bottom line. Those are few great exercises so you can have a back side like Beyonce. Rhiannon: Looking good ladies! If you have any fitness questions just email Andrea at AskAndrea@BetterTV.Com.
