2 leg floor bridges are one of the best butt exercises.
There are many exercises that work the butt muscles and glutes. Some exercises are isolation exercises that focus mostly on the glutes, and other exercises work multiple muscles at once.
For anyone who truly wants to work the glutes and butt muscles, squats, lunges, and the leg press machine are also great butt exercises that should be included in an overall butt workout.
This page shows the pictures and form for 2 leg floor bridges.
Starting Position: Simply begin by lying on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat.
Form: Pull in your belly button and engage your abdominal muscles. While keeping your back neutral, push through your heels and lift your hips off the floor. Hold for a brief second at the top and then slowly return to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: In addition to being a good butt exercise, bridges are also a good core exercise. When performing bridges, make sure that you keep your spine in good alignment.
Note: If you feel cramping in the back of your thighs or if you feel your range of motion is limited, stretch your hip flexors and lower back. Stiffness in your hips and lower back can limit your range of motion and decrease the effectiveness of this butt exercise.
2 leg floor bridges are one of the first butt exercises that I teach my clients.
