How to Make Your Butt Smaller

Going, going... gone! Say bye-bye to a big bum with these butt busters.

You will need

  • Fewer daily calories
  • More daily exercise
  • Some calisthenics

Step 1 Do some aerobics Get some aerobic exercise. Burning calories is the best way to lose fat, so walk at least 30 minutes every day and also incorporate moderate to intense aerobic activity—like running, biking, skiing, or hiking—three to six days a week for at least 20 minutes.

Step 2 Eat less Take in fewer calories by exercising some portion control. Men and women of different ages and activity levels have different daily needs—look yours up online and stick to it!

Step 3 Do squats Whenever you have a free moment, squeeze in a few squats. Standing with your back straight and your feet at a slight outward angle about shoulder-width apart, lower your body to a 90° angle. Work your way up to 20 at a time.

Step 4 Do lunges Do lunges every day. Take a long stride forward with one leg. Land on the heel, lower your body until your other knee is near the floor, then push back off your heel to the starting position. Work up to twenty per leg.

Step 5 Play with a ball Lie on your back on the floor and place your feet on an inflatable stability ball about 3 inches apart, toes pointed forward. With the help of your heels, lift and lower your butt to the floor as many times as you can.
