Not only does this exercise help to build strength in your glutes, hamstrings and calves, it's great for improving balance too. The most common variations are bodyweight only, with a kettlebell or with dumbbells.Shop the kit to try it out
Start by leaning your torso forward and grabbing a kettlebell with your right hand. Raise your right leg behind you in a straight line, utilising your glute and core strength.
As you pull the kettlebell up to waist height, lower your foot to the floor. Hold for 3 seconds, tucking your bum in and engaging your core. Repeat the exercise on the other side (pick up the kettlebell with your left hand and raise your left leg).
As the momentum of the swing comes from the hips and glutes, it's an extremely effective exercise for toning and strengthening your bum. But it's not all about the lower body - kettlebell swings are a killer full-body workout that are sure to get your heart racing.Shop the kit to try it out
Lean forward with your back straight (to do this, bend at the waist, rather than using your back to bend). Grip the kettlebell in both hands. With knees slightly bent, transfer your weight to your heels and let the kettlebell swing between your legs.
Thrust your hips forward to a standing position and let the weight swing up to shoulder height. As it falls, stand straight with a strong core until your forearms reach your hips, then bend forward again and repeat.
The squat has always been a staple exercise to tone the lower body. But it's another fab full-body exercise. The goblet squat works your glutes, quads, calves, core and arms. It's not an exercise to skip!Shop the kit to try it out.
Stand with your feet hip-distance apart, holding a kettlebell upside down at your chest.
Shoot your bum back into a deep squat, keeping your chest and eyes lifted.
Power back up, pressing through your heels, to your starting position and repeat 8 times in total.
