This week's #MondayMove is the 'ultimate butt exercise, firing up the glutes and giving you a perky backside,' says Anya Lahiri, trainer at Barry's Bootcamp. 'It has the added benefits of working the arms, shoulders and core as you try and maintain the plank throughout.'


Get into plank position on your hands and toes*

Make sure your hands are directly under your shoulders

Bring your right knee in towards your chest

Extend your leg back until it is straight

Push your heel up towards the ceiling as far as you can go squeezing your right butt cheek

Hold your core in as you kick back and try not to let the hips rotate

Repeat for 30 seconds on the right and 30 seconds on the left

*You can always start this move on your knees and progress to plank position once you feel comfortable

Anya Wears: Nike Lava Tight, Nike Pro Classic Bra, and Nike Vomero 9 Trainers.
