Like Tai from Clueless, we all have moments where we want to quit a workout because our buns don’t feel nothin’ like steel. Instead of the ‘90s workout VHS (sorry, Buns of Steel 3), try this standing lower body workout from Bridget O’Carroll, founder of Studio Qila. 

It requires no equipment and features four booty-blasting, lower body-strengthening exercises that will have you on your way to a perkier posterior.

THE MOVE: INNER THIGH SQUAT

How to: Stand with a wide stance, toes facing outward. Keep your torso up straight as you bend your knees, going wide over your toes.

THE MOVE: CURTSY LUNGE

How to: Start in a squat position. Step one leg back behind you into a curtsy position with both legs bent to a 90-degree position.

THE MOVE: REVERSE LUNGE

How to: Standing normally, step one leg back, keeping your legs parallel to each other. Both legs bend to 90 degrees before stepping back to the standing position.

THE MOVE: EXPLOSIVE LUNGE

How to: Find a double 90-degree position in your lower body, and explode into a lunge. You can either jump into the lunge or keep both feet connected on the ground.
