Here at Lucy Marie, we believe in the power of a nice derriere. We’re always on the lookout for our next booty-boosting workout. If doing hundreds of squats is starting to get old, switch things up and purchase a kettlebell to use at home. Not only will it help you build a nicer booty, but it will also give you a full-body workout. Below are a few moves we highly recommend:
1.) Glute Bridges with Kettlebell

3) Single-Leg Deadlift with Kettlebell
Your glutes and abs will feel the burn with this single-leg deadlift. To perform this move, hold the kettlebell in your right hand and lift your left leg slightly off the ground. Keeping your back glat, slowly lower your arm to the ground while simultaneously lifting your leg and extending it to the back of your body. Return upright to your starting position. Do 3 sets of 12 reps for each leg. [Source: Pop Sugar]Once you’re ready to bring squats back into your life, try holding your kettlebell while doing so to kick your workout up a notch. Enjoy!
