If you’ve ever looked at a picture of Jennifer Lopez and thought, “I want her body,” you’re not alone. The triple threat has put in major work at her fitness trainer David Kirsch‘s N.Y.C. gym through the years, and her svelte physique (Those abs! Those arms! That booty!) is proof of that.
Kirsch, who boasts A-list clients like Kerry Washington, Kate Upton and Anne Hathaway, shared three exercises with us so you can jumpstart your journey to a stronger, more lifted booty.

These three moves might not sound intimidating, but Kirsch assures you’ll be feeling the burn in record time. “You’ll feel it right away and will be sore the next day,” he tells Lively. But have no fear: the discomfort is worth it once you start noticing a transformation “definitely within a month,” according to Kirsch.
Incorporate these moves into your workout routine next time you hit the gym.
Start in a plié squat position, making sure your knees are aligned with your feet. Put your hands behind your head and walk forward in that position. Walk back and forth for 10 reps.
Start with your feet shoulder-width distance apart. Put your hands on your hips. Keep your weight back on your heels. Starting with your right leg, do a roundhouse and side-kick. Repeat on the other side. Do this for 10 reps.
Assume the position of stepping back into a lunge; but instead of bringing your leg back, cross your moving leg over to the opposite side. Repeat with your other leg. Do this for 10 reps.
