Butterfly Bridge + Chest Press – This hybrid motion turns into a total body exercise that will build & firm the glutes and the pectoral muscles, which keep both muscles from succumbing to the dreaded sagging due to gravity. Kicking your knees outward during the bridge so that the soles of your shoes are actually pressed together more effectively targets the outer thigh & hits the glutes in a different way than the regular bridge does.

To do this exercise more effectively, make sure you choose weights that that feels difficult to lift by the last 2-3 reps of each set. You may even want to choose different weights for different exercises.
