Booty Boost #2: Duke-or-Duchess Curtsy

Start by standing with your heels together, your toes pointed out to the sides, chest lifted, shoulders back, abs tight and hands on your hips. In a single fluid movement, cross your right leg behind your left leg and place your right toes on the ground, about 2 feet passed your left foot. Make sure that both knees are facing forward. Keeping your body upright, curtsy by bending both knees until your right knee touches the floor. Push off your right foot and return to the starting position. Repeat 8 times and switch sides.

Better Booty Tip:  “Perform this one with grace -- as though you were dropping to the floor in front of the Queen –- for extra strength and control. Keep your back straight and don’t let gravity do any of the work,” says Duke.
