Ultimate Butt Lift Signature Move Exercise Hi, I'm Amy Cheryl and I'm so excited to share with you an exercise from my Flexxation training program, Exxtasy thru Exercise. It’s known as the ultimate butt lifting series. So if you need to feel that you need to modify it a little bit, grab any type of bar or stick, maybe you have a mop or broom at home, or you can pull the chair up and join me. Come on now. Take your leg closest to me back. Make sure your knee’s in-line with your heel -- did I forget to tell you that this is a fabulous butt exercise? So I love that it incorporates the breath and I love how you’re targeting specifically the booty and the ham strings, it was to incorporate some balance. And offer you different exercises in one so it gives you the varieties in a good point. So continue through. What you’re going to do is you’re going tuck your tail bone under, and as you inhale you're going to drop your back knee down. Now this is the key to flexxation. When you exhale, imagine a magnet on your hamstring, expanding into the floor. So inhale as you lower, and that magnet is on your ham string in the floor. Expand your hamstring into the floor, keep your butt tight. So you want to keep it out of the quad and get it more into your booty and more into your hamstring. Now here is where the fun begins. Inhale down and we’re going to get into a little balance. Exhale lean over, inhale lift one leg off. If you feel really good today, maybe you want to drop your bar. And then you can bring yourself down with your hands, release the bar and we’re going to go into a little spiral tees. Inhale as you lower, drive the heel into the earth as you exhale and lift the back leg up. Breath just so much to the body while you're exercising, it keeps you calm, it keeps the one relaxed, it also sends oxygen into the muscles. Inhale as you lower, and as you exhale, drive that heel into the earth because that’s how you're going to activate your tush. Your husband will love you even more than he does already by you doing this exercise. Get one more, inhaling down, exhaling up. Now for an added challenge you should take the bar if you want. I'm going to demonstrate without the bar look down, and work on balancing through. Keep the shoulders down and then you get a little release in the tension of the neck. Gently, slowly release it back up into the butt lifter. Maybe want to do one more. See how it’s normal to be wobbly, so hang with that. Inhale as you come straight down, just little add a bonus in the tush, expand the hamstring into the earth, squeeze the butts and then step together. So then you can bring the other leg back and do the whole thing all over again. I know you had fun, and it felt really good didn’t it?
