Give your cheeks some attention—and give squats a rest—with this butt-sculpting move, the Weighted Donkey Kick, from Los Angeles-based trainer Astrid Swan.
The exercise is part of the Butt and Back Mega Burner workout from the brand-new, seven-day Best Bodies Challenge. Here’s how to do it: Start on all fours with hands under shoulders, knees below hips. Bend left leg to 90 degrees and place one weight (start with 3- to 5-lbs.) behind left knee. Squeeze left leg to hold weight in place and kick left leg up into the air, then bring knee under hips. That’s 1 rep—watch Astrid demonstrate how to perform the exercise in the GIF below. Do as many reps as possible in 90 seconds; then switch sides.
