Who doesn’t want a firm, strong, lean butt? There is no secret to getting a slim, trim butt. Diet and plenty of exercise can help you achieve the slim, firm figure you want. You can increase the intensity of some of your favorite butt exercises by adding dumbbells to your workout. Holding a pair of dumbbells when doing exercises for your glutes adds extra resistance and improves the effectiveness of your workout.
Take your step-up exercises to a new level by holding two 5-pound dumbbells during the exercise. Hold the dumbbells so that your palms are facing your body. Stand in front of an aerobic step-up bench. Pull your shoulders down and back slightly to straighten your spine and spread your feet about shoulder-width apart. Put one foot on the step-up bench and then push up to lift your body upward and then step onto the bench with your other foot. Step back down with the same foot you led with and do about 15 to 20 repetitions. Any exercise you do for your lower body can be made more effective holding some dumbbells. Hold a 5 or even 10-pound dumbbell in each hand when you do squats and lunges.
