This is a perky butt workout that will help you get a nice round booty without making your thighs bigger in the process.

I really enjoy doing this type of workouts because they help me tone my butt without adding too much muscle to my legs.

If you tend to bulk up easily in your lower body and you don’t like doing workouts that engage your quads (squats, lunges), I think you’re going to love my perky butt workout :)

For this workout, I decided to use ankle weights to make it a bit more challenging. But if you don’t want to, you can do all the exercises without using ankle weights.



  • Complete each exercise for 45 seconds (per side if it’s a one sided exercises).
  • Do 3 rounds. Feel that burn! 


All donkey kicks variations are great for building booty without growing your thighs!

I know that a lot of women are told they have to do squats and lunges if they want to build their booty. But I also know that those exercises will target your quads and make your thighs bigger.

Some women want to build their thighs and some don’t. And that’s perfectly fine! You just need to find a routine that works for you :)

Let me know if you try this workout!

    1. Hi lovely <3,

      Thanks for reaching out!

      Tension depends on what you feel comfortable with. I suggest you start with a medium tension resistance band and if you feel comfortable with that, you can switch to a heavier one. What matters the most is that you're able to perform the exercise properly in order to target the muscles the right way ( and the right muscles too) but also to prevent any type of injury.

      Hope this helps and please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with!


  1. hey rachael i was wondering whenever i do these workouts i get really bad cramps in my legs and feet. do have anyway i can do these and avoid the cramp :)

    1. Hi lovely,

      Thanks for reaching out! <3

      I suggest doing some warm-up exercises before your workouts and then stretching right after. This will help relieve muscle tension and soreness which is a possible cause of your cramps.

      Hope that helps. If you have more questions, feel free to email us at


  2. I’ve noticed that you will share some of your videos throughout your website or blog, like this one.
    Will these videos also be included with the full length video purchase?

    1. Hey lovely,

      The workouts in Rachael’s Program are in a similar style but are not the same.
      It just wouldn’t be fear to our customers. :)


    1. Hi lovely,

      Rachael recommends using 2lb – 5lb ankle weights :)

      I hope this helps!
