While you may not be able to switch genetics with J.Lo, you can maximize your rear view with these easy additions to your daily routine:
1. Take the stairs: Forgo the elevator and take the stairs at the office, at home or at the mall or airport. To really work the glutes, put your complete foot on the stair.
2. Sumo squats: Stand with your legs wider than your hips with the toes pointing out. Stand straight and tuck the pelvis under. Plie the knees lowering yourself 3-8 inches depending on your strength. Start with two sets of 10 and increase as you get stronger.
3. Lunges: Lunges are a challenging exercise because they work so many muscles at the same time. On the front leg, you'll work the glutes and hamstrings and, on the back leg, you'll work the quads and calves.
