The Donkey Kick or Glute Kickback exercise is a great exercise for sculpting your Gluteal muscles aka the ‘bottom’.

Here’s how:

  • Start in a ‘box’ position on a mat (on all fours with knees below hips and wrists below shoulders). You can also rest on your elbows if you prefer (as I demonstrate in the video).
  • Keeping your core engaged, hips and shoulders square to the floor, bend your right leg, and flex your right foot
  • Slowly lift your right leg leg until your thigh is parallel with the floor.
  • Lower back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for 12 to 15 reps, then switch legs to complete set.

If you want to make the exercise a little harder you can place a dumbbell behind your knee and grip it tightly before lifting your leg up towards the ceiling.
