A firm, well-rounded booty is what most men and women aspire to achieve in their aesthetic goals. Let’s face it, a good pair of jeans looks best on someone that has a little “junk in the trunk.” And don’t think people aren’t looking because they are! In order to get jeans to look their best on you then it’s important to know the proper steps to sculpting your lower body.
When setting out to work on your booty with a butt workout, you should consider that variations of tried-and-true moves, like squats and lunges can help you breakthrough a plateau and help in strengthening your entire lower body.
You may be asking yourself, “Why is Wendie telling me about an entire lower body workout when I only want to do a butt workout?” Well, the answer goes back to the old song that starts out, “The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone…” You get the idea. The same goes for your muscular system – it’s all connected. When you work your hamstrings (back of the legs) and the quadriceps (front of the legs) then you will also be engaging the glutes (butt), hence getting a butt workout!
My suggestion would be to perform moves that force you to engage small, stabilizing muscles in the lower body in order to work the larger muscle groups to their max. Squats, walking side-squats, one-legged press, rear and front lunges, and walking lunges are all great examples. Do them “Visibly Fit” style by using your body as your gym…using tension and flexion with every move. You will benefit greatly.
Keep in mind that when doing any of the exercises above one should keep proper form by making sure your knees don’t jet out over your toes when squatting or lunging. Make sure to keep your posture erect and squeeze all the muscles that are working, don’t just go through the motion. Also, keep your core engaged on all exercises. Practice and stay consistent and you will soon discover that your well-rounded workout routine will lead to a well-rounded and attractive booty!
