Best Exercises for Hips Toning

Squats: squats are one of the most effective workout exercises to tone your butts. There are distinctive kinds of squat exercises, one being chair squats. All you need to do is to stand with your feet hip-width apart and make an attempt to squat, with your back straightened and tummy tucked in. Keep a chair on your backside and make an attempt to sit, with your butts slightly touching the chair. To stand, squeeze your butts. Repeat this exercise for about 8 to 12 times.

Each person is different and fat gets stored in the body in a certain order. That order is determined by gender and genetics. It’s a myth that women can selectively lose fat in the hip region. In fact, ‘spot reduction’ is something that advertisers use to prey on unsuspecting customers desperate to try anything to shape up certain areas of the body. You have probably wasted time and money on gadgets, weight loss creams and other gimmicks. When one loses weight, the ‘reduction’ is general i.e all over the body, but never in one ‘spot’.

While on your right side, clasp hands around bent knees. Inhale deeply. With right elbow push yourself up and over to your left side, exhaling as you drop limply to the floor. Let go again and relax for 5 seconds. Repeat cycle three times, rolling from left to right, then right to left.

This hip toning exercise works on the gluteus mediums muscle. You can’t do this exercise on a carpet. Smooth floor is better. Stand with feet stretched apart to hip width with one foot on a paper plate. Slide your foot, which is on the paper plate, away sidewise while keeping torso and abs upright. You will need to bend the other knee. Hold it there for a while and get the foot back sliding to original position. Repeat the same for the next foot and then the cycle for 8-10 times. You can rest your hands on your torso.

Another choice at the gym is your inner and outer thigh machine usually made for the gals and normally in the ladies section. This machine does not have a gluteal component on it so you have to go over to your multi hip machine. This one is s sometimes used for inner and outer thigh and additionally for hip flexors.

Swimming has such a slimming and toning effect on the whole body. The only problem is, how you find a pool you can use all year round. Instead of just plain swimming back and forth without stopping, I prefer that you swim as fast as you can from 1 side of the pool to the other side. Once you get there, rest 30 seconds and keep repeating this for 20 minutes. Those are 2 of the best hips toning exercises you can possibly do.

Starting Position: – Stand on one leg with a slight bend in your knees. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and allow them to hang down at your sides. Movement: – Inhale, keeping your heel in contact with the floor at all times, slowly lower into a squat position.

You can start with 2 lb dumbbells and work your way up to 5 lbs within 3-4 weeks.
