Living Fit Mommy: Shape That Backside With This Strength Movement

Let me say this in advance: I wouldn’t advise anyone that might be new to exercise to try this move. There are plenty of other exercises you can do—to shape and lift your backside—without performing a movement that 1) requires you to touch the floor, 2) requires you to lock at the knees (something I absolutely hate having to do), or 3) requires you to drop your hips to the floor. All of these things require something that not everyone has—flexibility.

Tight hips and hamstrings will definitely hamper your range of motion for this one and it’s of the utmost importance that you do not injure or pull any muscles or joints while attempting to execute something that could very well be out of your range depending on your fitness/flexibility levels.
