12 Simple Exercises to Slim the Hips and Waist

Alex Silver-Fagan, who is a Nike trainer claims that performing squats is crucial for having toned legs and nice butt. To be more precise, you need to combine all of the following exercises with similar training programmes.

Do it this way:

You need to perform the exercises on a daily basis. Doing these exercise does not take more than 15 minutes

The best thing is that these exercises can be performed in in the comfort of your home.

If you indeed complete these easy exercises in the right way, your body transformation will occur really soon.

The best start is by performing Basic Squats.

Basic Squat
First, you’ll need to master a classic squat.

Squat with Kickbacks
“This variation fires your glutes right from the start,” says Silver-Fagan.

Sumo Squat
This variation helps you keep your torso lifted throughout the exercise, while giving your glutes extra attention.

Reaching Sumo Squat
“Adding the reach gets your calves firing,” says Silver-Fagan. “It also boosts your heart rate.”

Oblique Squat
Even a classic squat carves your core, but this oblique squat takes your ab workout to the next level.

Jump Squat

Silver-Fagan likes this variation because it adds some shoulder mobility work to the mix.

Narrow Squat
This stance sets you up for the pistol squat that follows.

Pistol Squat
“Your glutes are forced to work harder as you stand upright and push your hips forward,” says Silver-Fagan.

Curtsey Squat

These next two moves play with different planes of motion. First, you move laterally in this curtsey squat…


Split Squat
Then, you transition into a front-to-back motion in the split squat, explains Silver-Fagan.

Isometric Squat with Toe Taps
Silver-Fagan calls this the “booty burn” because your muscles have less time to rest.

Pop Squat
“Adding in the pop squat gives your legs a breather after the isometric squat, flushing out the lactic acid, while also adding some cardio.”
