Small resistance band, BIG burn.
Resistance bands may feel a little retro, but they're a workout staple for good reason. The mini versions—affectionately known as 'booty bands'—have become a cult favorite tool to ignite a serious burn in (you guessed it) your booty.
Every move in this workout can be done with or without booty bands, so don't worry if you don't have one. But by adding that resistance band, you'll fatigue your muscles much faster, really target your inner thighs, and lift and round your butt by working the gluteus maximus to the max. (BTW, you can find some great bands on Amazon for around $10.) The best part of this workout; it only takes 10 minutes.
How it works: complete each of the moves in the video above. If you want more of a sweat, repeat this workout one or two more times for a 20- to 30-minute insane lower body blast. If you want to add some upper body work into the mix, combine this workout with this total-body strength workout.
