Celebrity, actress, and cookbook author Ayesha Curry knows a thing or two about time management. As a TV show host and mother of three, this Canadian-American values her time. So Curry paired up with Fitbit Premium to create a series of easy and quick exercise routines.
Here’s one of the workouts that she swears by to work your glutes.
Ayesha Curry’s butt workout
For a quick 10-minute burn, repeat this circuit once. If you have time to spare and want a harder workout, repeat this circuit approximately three times for a 20-minute routine.

You need to know how to squat correctly to get the most out of this exercise.
How to squat: Start with your feet shoulder-width apart with your toes pointing forward and your back straight. Hinge as though you’re about to sit down in a chair. Keep your knees over your toes and stand back up to starting position.

Any lunge variation is good for the butt, including one of Curry’s favourite moves. Plus, this move is also one of the best thigh exercises.
How to curtsy lunge: Start in the same position as the squat. Place the left leg behind the right by taking a large step backward. (You’re mimicking a curtsy, hence the name.) Repeat on the other leg.

Dog owners might recognize the similarity between how a dog lifts their leg to go to the bathroom and this exercise move. Don’t let that comparison put you off this exercise. This move is one of the butt exercises that really work.
How to do a fire hydrant: Start on your hands and knees with your hands under your shoulders. Your hips should be above your knees. Keeping your leg at a bent 90-degree angle, lift your knee away from your body and return to the starting position. Repeat for 10 to 20 reps.
Do 20 kickbacks
If you’re looking for a fat-burning exercise, but hate running, this might be the move for you. At this point in the routine, your heart rate will be up.
How to do a kickback: Start in the same position as the fire hydrant. Extend your leg back and away from your body, squeeze the glute muscles, and hold for a second. Then return to the starting position and repeat.
