These 8 Ab-and-Booty Combo Moves Make the Most Intense 30-Minute Workout

Fitness

Your abs and booty are about to get worked! Val Desjardins, owner of The Studio Montreal and celebrity EXOS-certified fitness trainer who’s worked with clients such as Jennifer Aniston, shared this 30-minute bodyweight-only workout to target your glutes, abs, and back.

This is a low-impact, mat-based workout that focuses on strengthening your core and exercising your glutes. Desjardins said building strength in your core reinforces the support system for your entire body. Your core is responsible for your posture, and routinely working on reinforcing it helps prevent injuries. In turn, exercising your glutes helps to build strength for exercises that involve smaller muscle groups, such as running, jumping, or even just walking.
