I've never met a celebrity workout I didn't immediately want to try, and it's especially tempting when the routine targets my glutes, takes five minutes, and doesn't require a single piece of equipment, like the butt workout supermodel Kelly Gale posted today. I've tried Gale's ab workouts in the past and they have definitely worked, so as soon as I saw this one hit my YouTube subscriptions, I grabbed my mat and got ready to try.
Gale describes this as a beginner workout because it's so quick and comprised of foundational, bodyweight moves. You do each exercise for about 30 seconds, and the exercises are:
- Lunge, right leg
- Lunge, left leg
- Squat pulse
- Glute bridge
- Glute bridge pulse
- Single-leg glute bridge (left leg in the air)
- Single-leg glute bridge with leg lift
- Single-leg glute bridge (right leg in the air)
- Single-leg glute bridge with leg drop
Sure, this workout only lasts five minutes, but my glutes and quads were still trembling by the end, especially during the looong glute bridge section. One round is a great way to fire up and engage your glutes, and if you want an extra challenge, you could add a second or third round to really work your butt. We also have to give a quick shoutout to Gale's dog, Zoe, who decided to do the hip thrust section along with us. Lay out a mat or find some comfy ground to work out on, then check out the full workout (and dog cameo) above!
