Boost Your Bottom Line

Not only does a perk rear look fab in jeans, it helps power your legs through everything from a killer group-fitness class to a tough run, so you can work out harder with less effort. To sculpt this key area in record time, we turned to Andrea Orbeck, the trainer behind some of Hollywood’s hottest backsides. Orbeck follows the same “glute trifecta” whether she’s working with Maria Menounos or Heidi Klum: cardio to fire up the butt and blast fat, sculptors that target the largest muscles in the lower body, and moves that home in on the glutes from every angle. Put her super effective strategy into practice with this workout and you’ll never fear a pair of skinny jeans again. 

How it works: Three times a week, walk on a treadmill for 10 to 15 minutes, increasing the incline every few minutes until it’s at least 10 percent. (Or hoof it up and down stairs instead.) Then do 2 sets of each move in order without resting in between.
You will need: Bench, Free weights, Resistance band
