Tush, rump, derriére – no matter what you call it, there’s no denying that an incredible backside has launched many Hollywood careers.

So who should be crowned Best Butt?

This debate pops up so often that there are entire websites dedicated to the question.

Some like small perky butts like those found on Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, and Maggie Q.

Others prefer buxom, rounder butts like Rihanna, Sofia Vergara, and Jennifer Lopez.

Or you may favor fuller, more prominent butts like Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé.

Regardless of what your butt looks like, all of these shapes are healthy and fantastic.

My job requires me to help my celebrity clients sculpt, tone, shape, and tighten their tushes (well, improve upon what their parents gave them). Here are a few easy ways to transform your bum.

The Skater Lunge

Have you ever watched figure skating? You’ll notice ice skaters have the best butts in the world! The skating motion really targets the glutes. The skater lunge tries to mimic that motion by working your lower body side to side more so than traditional lunges. Standing upright, step back and across your body with your right leg, dropping your right knee almost to the ground just outside of your left foot. Then drive back up and across. Repeat the same with the other leg.
