How did Sarah Clayton get that booty?

Tell us about who you are?

Hey GymBooty! I’m a 3x published Playboy Model and Cybergirl, have been a live model on QVC and 
I was recently featured in the cast of Men’s Health and Women’s Health Magazine’s “Spartacus: 
5.0” fitness DVD series! I work in the healthcare industry, I’m married to my best friend and we have an 
English bulldog baby. I’m also tragically addicted to coffee and I LOVE to work out.

How long have you been working out?

Seriously for about 3 years.

How do you train your booty?

I mostly work with my own bodyweight and dumbbells. My gym is in my basement and 
my programs are: Delta Fit Speed Shred and Spartacus: 5.0 - both by Men’s Health.

What is your favorite booty workout?

Goblet Squats

What’s the secret to your amazing booty?

Definitely squats - it seems like MILLIONS of squats! But it’s all about what you do when 
you’re not working out too.

Talk about your diet and how it affects your body/booty.

I pay so much more attention to everything I’m eating when I’m working out regularly. It goes 
hand-in-hand. You can’t go kill yourself with your workout and shove crap down your throat. 
When I’m working out and stick to my regimen, I notice that I have so much more energy and endurance during the day – I also have noticeably less bloating and fewer body consciousness issues.

Do you have any tips to help keep women motivated to build their booties?

The way your jeans, and more importantly your tight skirts, feel and look when your butt starts to 
pop, is the most addicting feeling. I also love the way my quads look when I’m feeling really toned. 
It’s hard not to stay motivated with those results!

Where can we find more information about you?

Check me out at: www.SarahClaytonModeling.com 

Where you can find my lowest-priced merchandise and autographed photos in the member’s store. My members get to see all of

We Have Lift-Off: How To Get Your Butt High And MightyWe’ve been at the gym all winter and spring in to get healthy and fit (and yes, hitting the beach may partly be our motivation). Try as we might — and as many cronuts as we’ve passed on — there’s still one area that eludes us: The high-and-tighty-Lord-Almighty butt. We were hoping that walk-up apartment stairs and racing for cabs would help (in addition to clenching in fear when riding with a rage-filled cab driver) but, alas, we’re in need of a little more affection to tone the back section.  This is when we turn to the experts, like Anna Gagie, Senior Instructor at Exhale Spa, the creators of the ballet-inspired body blaster known as Core Fusion. Exactly what moves would Gagie recommend to bring our butts into their most toned shape? Anna’s got five butt-lifting moves that are guaranteed to take our backsides to new heights. Prepare for lift-off with these five signature moves: Pelvic tilts: Lie on your back on a mat or a rug. Bend your knees and raise your posterior off the floor so your body forms a right angle. With your left leg still bent at a 90 degree angle, straighten your right leg to the ceiling and push your pelvis upward, keeping the right leg straight as if you were trying to imprint your foot on the ceiling. Do 15 reps, then change sides, and do 15 reps on the other side. Finish with both legs bent at a 90 degree angle and tuck your pelvis toward the ceiling 20 times. Repeat all three moves. Prone: Turn over and lie belly-side down on a mat or a rug. Fold your hands one on top of the other, and place your head on top of your hands to rest your neck. Tuck your tailbone and glue your pelvis to the floor. Using your butt muscles, lift one leg off the floor 20 times, then repeat that move on the other side. Bend your knee, flex your foot toward your backside, and do 20 lifts. Repeat that move on the other side. Repeat the entire set again. Pretzel: A move with which most Core Fusion addicts are familiar, bringing squeals of delight once it’s achieved properly, this focuses on sculpting the formation of the high and tight backside. Sit on the floor with your left knee bent straight across your body in front of your left hip, and your right knee bent behind you (with the knee facing 45 degrees behind your body). Hold your ankle as close to your butt as possible, place your hands on the floor for balance, then rotate your right hip forward, and try to lift your knee off the floor. Press your foot straight back with the knee off the ground for 20 reps, then do 20 reps lifting the knee straight up. Repeat this process on the other side. Table Top: Get on hands and knees, with your hands underneath your shoulders, knees under hips. Extend your right leg straight out and up to hip height. Lift your straight leg 20 times, then flex your foot toward the ceiling, and press your bent leg toward the ceiling 20 times. Repeat this process on the other side. Stationary Lunges: Just like in regular workout class, it’s everyone’s dreaded exercise that gets the best results. Place your right leg in front, making sure your right knee is over your right ankle, with your left leg behind you, and with the left knee under your hip. Bend the left knee straight down, and pulse up and down 10 times. Repeat this move on the other side. Repeat on the other side.  Gagie recommends performing these moves four to five times a week, coupled with regular exercise, and a smart diet, for a butt worthy of your best Brazilian wax in no time flat. We’re all about doing this — and a bit of prancercising for extra cardio — to give our butts new altitude with attitude.Via Refinery29

Develop stronger glutes with targeted workouts

In the world of exercise and training, there are many different bodies and an endless variety of fitness goals, from fat loss to building muscle to avoiding injury. Despite this, there are a few topics that have almost universal appeal. One of these topics is glute training or building a better butt.

I’ve been working hard through my current fat-loss program and have lost approximately 7.5 pounds so far. I have one to two weeks to drop the remaining 2.5 pounds and may decide to push hard and drop a few extra. As I’ve lost this weight, I’ve discovered something new and I’m not thrilled about it.

With the fat loss, I’ve noticed that my pants and shorts are fitting differently in the seat. Although I regularly train my legs with exercises like squats, lunges, etc., to maintain the strength in my hips and large leg muscles, it has become apparent that my glutes aren’t as fully developed as they used to be. I know this is personal stuff, but I’m sharing this because I’ve got a feeling that many of you will be in the same situation.

I know from my work with hundreds of clients that it’s possible to perform compound, lower-body exercises with very little glute involvement. The muscles of the legs can dominate and do more work than they should.

Despite my efforts to engage and activate my own glute muscles, the fact I’m observing a loss of muscle mass in this region tells me something is missing. I could blame it on the aging process, but I’d rather do something about it since I know that powerful glutes are critical to my movement and physical health.

Following are three important activities that you should perform daily to ensure your glutes are engaged and able to do their job. Always get medical approval before beginning or modifying your fitness program:

HIP-FLEXOR STRETCH

It may seem strange I’ve included a hip-flexor stretch as part of a glute activation program, but there really is some science behind it. Most of us have tight hip flexors from spending too many hours seated at a desk or in our cars.

When your hip flexors get too tight, an imbalance develops across your hip joints. You won’t be able to fully extend your hip joints, which diminishes the ability to fully engage your glute muscles.

Ensuring adequate hip flexibility will let you get your legs and hips into a position where your glutes can become fully engaged, thereby maintaining their strength and muscle mass.

To stretch your hip flexors, begin by kneeling on your right knee, with your left foot in front of you, flat on the ground. Keep your body upright and place your hands behind your head.

Activate your core musculature to stabilize your lower spine and pelvis, and gently press your pelvis forward toward your front foot. This should produce a slightly uncomfortable stretch in the front of your right hip and thigh. Hold the stretch for 60 seconds, progressing slightly as the muscles release. Perform this stretch twice on each leg, breathing and working steadily to increase the range of motion.

PRONE GLUTE HYPER-EXTENSION

I’m very much a proponent of ground-based, functional exercises that mimic athletic movements, but there are times when it’s necessary to fall back to more specific, targeted moves to activate and recruit certain muscles. Because the glutes are more active during exercises where your leg moves through a range of hyper-extension (moving behind your hip joint), it’s important to work into this range, with loads that are light enough for the muscles not to be overwhelmed. Starting with a moderately easy exercise like this one is a great idea at the start of your glute program. Begin by lying face down on the ground with your legs straight. Activate your core stabilizers and bend your right leg to 90 degrees. Maintaining neutral spinal alignment, carefully raise your right knee off the ground, generating the lift from your right glute. Perform two sets of 10 raises on each leg, with a three-second hold at the top.

SUPINE GLUTE BRIDGE

Another great exercise for working your glutes through mid-and end-range contractions is the supine bridge movement. Start on your back on the ground with your knees bent and feet flat. Your legs should be roughly hip-width apart.

Activating your core to maintain neutral spinal alignment, use your glutes to press your pelvis upward toward the sky, pushing as high as possible without arching your back or letting your knees spread apart.

Perform two sets of 10, with a three-second hold at the top. If this is easy, you also can perform this exercise with one leg raised in the air to increase the load and leverage on the working glute.

Via the Province

For this butt lifting workout we are going to string together four exercises. We’re gonna do a glute bridge on the ground with our legs elevated on the step. Then we’re gonna do a step-up to a squat. We’re also gonna do a bulgarian split squat and then last but not least, we’re gonna do leg lift to an abduction.

So all you need if you’re doing this at home or somewhere at the gym is something to step up on. The height is up totally up to you. I’m at the track using the bleachers step.

Let’s go!!

Butt Exercises

The Workout
  1.  Elevated Glute Bridge
    • Lay on the ground.
    • Put your heels up to the steps, arms out to your side.
    • Before you lift, tuck your abs under and shorten the distance between your hips and your rib cage.
    • Squeeze your abs and lift your booty up as high as you can.
    • Squeeze your glute and lower.
  2.  Step Up Squat (using the steps)
    • Step up.
    • Squat down (as well as you can).
    • Step down.
    • Alternate legs.
  3. Bulgarian Split Squat
    • Start with your right leg up on the step.
    • Get a comfortable distance away from the steps so that you can balance.
    • Squeeze your right butt cheek.
    • Press right hips forward.
    • Hands can whenever you want for balance (on hips will work out nicely).
    • Drop the right knee towards the ground and raise it up.
    • Alternate and do the same with the left leg.
  4. Leg Lift to Abduction
    • Lean on the step (like a push up position).
    • Raise your leg and kick it out to the side.
    • Keep abs in tight (same tuck position of glute bridge position).

Do each exercise for 20 reps (10 on each side for single sided exercises) and repeat the circuit 3-5x. This butt workout is a great finisher for a cardio workout, or a great set of butt exercises for a total body workout.

@Amandalatona only goes HARD!

If you’ve tried every butt-blasting, glute-sculpting workout you can find and still see flat or saggy results, you may just need to tweak what you’re doing to turn disappointment into an uplifting success.

Most butt-blaster workouts rightly incorporate squats, lunges, step ups and dead lifts. I’m not going to rehash or describe them here. You can find them easily online. I’m also not going to go into proper technique or discuss the risks associated with each exercise. You can find that elsewhere, too. What I am going to do is tell you how to adjust these exercises to actually make them work for you. 

Up the Resistance
If you can do more than 12 repetitions of your chosen glute exercise, whether that’s squats, lunges, step ups or dead lifts, add more resistance. Ten barbell squats to fatigue will do more to shape your rear than 50 squats without added weight. To build muscle effectively, you must have enough resistance to make the exercise tough… so tough that you can’t do more than 8 to 12 repetitions. Add a barbell, dumbbells, sandbags, a weighted vest, a kettlebell-whatever you want. You can also increase resistance by switching to single leg squats.

Apply Plyometrics and Speed
Add a jump or hop to your traditional glute exercises. Do jump squats, step ups with a hop at the top of the motion (also holding a dumbbell for added intensity, if needed) and lunges with a jump between reps. Use caution when adding extra weight to these plyometric exercises. The extra weight increases injury risk but can also provide more dramatic results. On the cardio interval side, perform short sprints and side-to-side skater leaps to build and shape your glutes-if uphill, all the better.

Bring Your Thigh Closer to Your Chest
The more flexion you have at the front of the hip, the more work your glutes have to do to extend the hip. In practice, this involves leaning the torso forward slightly from the hip (not by curving the back) during exercises such as the lunge and step ups. The closer you get the thigh to the chest, the better. Also, with step ups, place the working leg at least 2” higher than the trailing leg. This may mean skipping one or even two steps when using stairs or using a higher stool than you’re used to. The higher, the better, as long as you can perform the step up safely. Try to minimize push-off with the trailing leg.

Pay Attention During the Lowering Phase
Normally we focus on the “up” or lifting portion of a squat, lunge, step up or dead lift. The “down” portion, or lowering phase, is at least, if not more, important. Take your time with the lowering phase, and control the motion to its end.

Avoid the Treadmill and Elliptical Machine
Treadmills and elliptical machines, because of the movement of the belt beneath you or the help given to the glutes of one leg by the hip flexors of the other leg, can lead to glute “shut down” or glute laziness. When possible, train on firm ground and preferably on hills and/or stairs. This does not mean you can never use these machines, but do not use them exclusively. When you do use the treadmill, incline it 5 to 7 percent.

Building and shaping your glutes requires intense work and places significant demands on your muscles and joints. Not all people can achieve the goal of sculpted glutes without injury. If you notice any signs of overuse or strain, decrease the intensity of your workouts and get with a trainer to make sure your exercise technique is correct. A great looking butt is nice, but a body functioning without pain is nicer.

Finally, realize that genetics do play a role in your results. The shape of your derrière is somewhat predetermined by the length of your tendons and where those tendons of your hamstrings and glutes attach to the bone. In addition, levels of various hormones such as testosterone, growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), affect how much muscle development you will achieve. Some people see more growth than they want, while others won’t quite reach the muscle development they wish for.

Step 1 a & b: Double Leg Stretch: Start with head, neck and shoulders lifted and knees in table top as in 1a. Keeping head, neck and shoulders lifted high of the mat, move legs and arms to position 1b, then return to 1a. Repeat 10 times. Keep abdominals in and up. This exercise targets your abdominals.

Step 2: Modified Swimming – start kneeling with right leg and left arm extended as in picture. Lower and lift arm and leg simultaneously up and down, keeping movement small 8 times slow and 8 times fast. Repeat on other leg. Be sure to keep shoulders away from ears, abdominal muscles engaged and try to keep your back from bending or extending. This exercise targets upper back, abs and butt.

Step 3: Shoulder Bridge – Lie on back, bum lifted with right leg in the air as in picture. Keeping hips square to ground, lower and lift hips 8 times. Repeat on other leg. Keep your shoulders relaxed and squeeze your bum tight with every lift! This exercise targets butt, hamstrings and abs.

Step 4: Heel Squeezes – Lie on tummy as in picture. Squeezing heels and lifting knees just a little, pulse up 10 times squeezing your bum with every pulse. Remember to keep your abdominal muscles pulling in and up, keep your lower back from arching. This exercise targets hamstrings and butt.

Strong glutes play a crucial role in athletic performance.

Weak glute muscles affect the entire body, largely because the glutes comprise the leg’s three largest muscles—the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. When these muscles are unable to extend and externally rotate your hip and trunk, other muscle groups have to compensate. This can cause lower back issues, knee pain or ankle sprains.

For you to perform optimally through sport-specific movements, your three glute muscles need to be functionally strong and flexible. This makes stretching the glutes an important part of any training program.

Here are three great glute stretches that can help you prevent injuries. Incorporate them in your post-workout routine.

Reclined Pigeon
  • Lie on your back with your knees bent.
  • Cross your left ankle over your right thigh.
  • Pull your right thigh back toward your chest.
  • Hold onto the back of your thigh with both hands.
  • Maintain the stretch for up to a minute, then switch sides.

Knees to Chest
  • Stay on your back.
  • Bring both knees in to your chest and hold them with your hands.
  • Stay centered and hold the stretch.
  • Then rock side to side or make little circles with your knees to massage tension away from your spine and back muscles.

Child’s Pose
  • Take an all-fours position on your hands and knees.
  • Push your hips back to rest on your heels and your arms forward to the floor.
  • Place your forehead on the ground.
  • Round out your back for a nice glute stretch.
  • Try to rest your glutes directly on your heels if you can. It’s okay if they don’t touch.
  • For more intensity, walk your hands to the right, place your forehead back down between your arms and hold the stretch. Then walk your hands to the left and repeat.

Pro Surfer Anastasia Ashley Shares Her Hot-Butt Secret
Could there be anything more amazing than lounging on a sunny beach, looking hot in your bikini? Shockingly, yes — and that would be emerging from the surf feeling particularly fit and confident in your bikini because you’re a badass surfer chick who just conquered a monster wave.
Say hello to Airwalk pro surfer Anastasia Ashley, and welcome to her life. (Yup, we’re all jealous.) The girl’s been surfing since she was 5 years old, so have faith that every muscle on her body has been shaped with help from the toughest training buddy ever: the big bad ocean. With surfing, “you’re bending your legs for balance and working with the wave,” she says. “A bigger wave means you have to exert more energy with the stance.”
To build her core strength and tone that fabulous butt of hers, Ashley swears by glute kickbacks: “They’re a favorite exercise of mine! I do them to keep my glutes tight and strong for surfing.” Well, the rest of us may not be mastering the Hang Ten anytime soon, but if kickbacks can get us even close to her butt-kicking booty, then we’re on board — pun totally intended.
The Move: Glute Kickbacks
Works: Glutes, Hamstrings

Assume a kneeling push-up position with a slight bend in the waist and arms below you. Raise your left knee to a 90-degree angle so that the bottom of your foot is up toward the ceiling. Repeat for 10 reps, then switch legs and repeat to complete a set.
Hot Tip: Keep your back straight and abs tight, and squeeze your glutes for maximum effect.
