LOWER BODY (Hips, Thighs and Glutes) For those that carry their weight in their legs, hips, thighs and butt, the exercises in the 5-5-5 Program will concentrate on tightening, toning, lifting and sculpting toner, sleeker thighs and a “perkier” butt! They don’t call me the Master of the Ass® for nothing! Now, I’ve said it before, but it is worth repeating again: For optimal results when doing exercises for your lower body, PUT YOUR BRAIN IN YOUR BUTT!! To shape a better butt, make sure the focus and energy is there and not in your quadriceps, lower back, or knees. I’ve put together a combination of plyometric and single-leg movements that will not only strengthen, tone, and sculpt your legs, but also work on your core balance and strength. SUMO LUNGE TO A SIDE KICK WITH A SQUAT JUMP 1. Stand in a “sumo” position with your feet slightly wider than shoulder’s distance apart, your knees bent, and your body weight over your heels. 2. Take a large step sideways with your right leg, bringing your right knee in toward your chest and then over to the right (2a) in one continuous move. 3. As soon as your right foot touches the ground, bring your knee back into your chest and complete a side kick, kicking your right heel out to the side. 4. Lower your right leg to the floor into a sumo position. Squat down while keeping the weight in your heels and stick your butt out. Keep your knees just above-not in front of-your toes. 5. Spring up while thrusting your arms overhead. Land on your heels, rolling forward onto your toes. Repeat with a sumo lunge and side kick with your left leg and another squat jump. Continue alternating right to left until you have completed fifteen lunges on each side and thirty squat jumps. This is probably one of my most well known (and dreaded) exercises. Perfected by Heidi Klum and me on the beach in the Hamptons, it is martial arts + plyometric = total thigh, hips and butt blast! — Fitness and nutrition are vital to your family’s health.

No matter your age or physique, David’s new book, David Kirsch’s Ultimate Family Wellness, can help you get results and look and feel your best without sacrificing time with your friends and family. It worked for me. It can work for you. I have had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with his daughters Emilia and Francesca – both in and out of the gym and have seen how David has so beautifully taught and exposed them to a healthy (and fun) lifestyle. On a lighter note, Francesca can still kick my butt when it comes to pushups. I have also been a guest at one of his sumptuous Thanksgiving family and friends dinner and can vouch for his fine culinary acumen. It was one of the healthiest, most delicious home cooked meals I have ever eaten! I can’t wait to try the new recipes and encourage you to experience David’s 5 – minute plank workout. It helps shape and tone my body in no time!” – Kate Upton Share article facebook twitter google pinterest If you have any comments on this article please contact us or get in touch via social media.
