A 20-Minute no equipment abs and butt workout

Abs and butt are two parts of the body which are given more attention when it comes to exercise, because we all want to show off a firm stomach and strong glutes.

Below you will find a workout of 3 circuits that lasts 20 minutes with warm up and stretching included, so you can practice them more frequently.

Circuit 1

For this circuit we recommend using a dumbbell with 5 kg weight. Be aware of these exercises are also effective with less or no additional weight.

Exercise 1: Side Lunge with Squat

  1. Holding the dumbbell at chest height, step your left leg into a side stride, bending your left knee. Note that the weight should be on the left heel.
  2. Cross your left leg behind your right leg, bowing.
  3. On the last repetition, when bowing, hold the position as you go up and down. This will work your glutes even more.
  4. Do the same on the other side.

Exercise 2: Lumberjack

  1. Standing with your legs slightly wider than your hips, hold the 5 kg dumbbell. Perform a squat by turning your torso to the right without moving your feet.
  2. Exhale and turn your body to the left as you raise your arms overhead, pivoting on your right foot.

Exercise 3: Touch the ground on one leg

  1. Grasp the dumbbell in your right hand and stand with your right leg raised.
  2. With your back flat, bend your left knee as you bend forward from your hips to touch the dumbbell to the floor. Keep your right knee bent and close to your body.
  3. Return to the starting position by placing the weight on the left heel.
  4. Once you have done 12 repetitions, switch legs.
