Booty Building Ankle Weight Workout

This at-home ankle weight butt workout will lift and sculpt your glutes from ever angle with the best booty building exercises.

Butt Exercises with Ankle Weights

A few weeks ago, some of the amazing ladies in our Facebook Community were discussing the best pieces of equipment for working out at home — and fellow fit girl, Jessica, asked about ankle weights.

I have LOVED ankle weights since I first began teaching group exercise classes (over 10 years ago!). There are so many amazing exercises you can do with them! 

Today, I wanted to share with you a brand new ankle weight butt workout hat will target every inch of your beautiful backside!

These are some of the BEST ankle weight booty exercises using ankle weights. But really, there are wayyyy more exercises out there than just these we’re doing today — you can even use them around your wrists/forearms for awesome upper body resistance, too!

If you like ankle weights be sure to check out the Fitness Collective App! There a bunch of other workouts on there too! Plus, you get your first 14-days FREE!

Are you ready to get Sweaty?

And for those of you ladies who don’t have ankle weights (yet! πŸ˜‰ ) — you can still do this entire workout without them!

Ankle Weight Butt Workout

Ankle Weight Butt Workout

Glute Kickbacks

Start on your hands and knees, with your shoulders directly over your hands, and hips over your knees. Keep your abs tight and hips steady as you engage your butt and hamstrings on the LEFT leg to press it back straight behind you. Keep your foot flexed to really engage your glutes, and then bend it back in without letting it hit the mat. Repeat 15 times.

Butt Lifts

On your last kickback, keep the leg straight and point through the toe. Making sure you don’t turn the leg out, lift your leg up to just about hip height or just a little higher, and squeeze your butt at the top. Lower, and repeat 15 times. Make sure to keep your hips steady, shoulders relaxed, and abs tight.


On your last butt lift, keep your leg straight, and bring it out to to the LEFT of your torso. Lift your leg and make a rainbow shape, up and over to the RIGHT side of your body, crossing over your hips. Draw another rainbow back over to the LEFT, and repeat 10 rainbows in each direction.

Booty Press

Hold at the top, and center of your last Rainbow, and bend your knee and flex your foot, as if your were pretending the bottom of your foot is making a footprint on the ceiling. Press the bottom of your foot up towards the ceiling about 6 inches. Squeeze your glutes at the top, and then lower 6 inches. Repeat 15 more times.

Leg Curl

Keep your leg lifted, with your thigh parallel to the mat, and extend your leg out straight, flexing your foot. Hold your thigh steady as you curl your leg in, bringing your heel towards your booty, and extend your leg back straight. Repeat 15 times without letting your thigh lower towards the mat at all.

Complete all the exercises and repetitions on the LEFT leg, and then repeat it all on the RIGHT leg!
