Want buns of steel, year-round? Don't we all. Look no further than Equinox and SLT expert trainer Patrick McGrath, who just so happens to be an expert on the subject. In the video above, McGrath shows me a bang-for-your-buck booty move that also targets the abs; a pelvic thrust with an abdominal crunch (check out the amazing studio we got to shoot in -- the new Project by Equinox space in Nolita). The move can be done with or without gliders (use gliders for an advanced version) and requires no gym equipment, meaning you can take this move with you the beach and beyond. Watch the clip above to get the full version adn get ready to feel the burn.
Hey guys, I'm Kim with InStyle. I'm here with celebrity trainer at PROJECT by Equinox and SLT Patrick McGrath. And today he's going to show me a challenging move that will get you a perfectly toned ****. Just in time to hit the beach. [MUSIC] What are we doing today. [LAUGH] Today, we're gonna be doing a pelvic thrust with an abdominal crunch so you're gonna get not only the **** that you want for the beach but also the ab. Abs too. Perfect, two in one, I love it. Okay, let's get started. All right, so lay all the way down. Light touch behind both ears, we're gonna start with a crunch here. So, lift your shoulder blades and exhale. Low back pushes into the mat. Lower the shoulder blades down. Now, push through both heels, squeeze your **** into a bridge position. Lower the hips back down. One crunch up as you exhale. Lower. One pelvic thrust push through the heels and squeeze. Good! Exhale lift. Inhale lower. And how Push through the heels and squeeze. And how many sets and reps of this do you recommend? I would say one full minute in duration. Then one minute rest three times over. Three times over. How many times a week? Every day? [LAUGH] I would say, ideally every day, but maybe four times a week. Okay, we'll start with four and see how that goes. Can you do this exercise without the gliders if you don't have them on hand? Yeah, absolutely. It's gonna take a little bit of resistance away from the back of the legs, but still a very effective exercise. So the version that we're doing is the harder version is what you're telling me. Yes, unfortunately. Yes, I can feel it all up the back of my legs. Exactly. [SOUND]
