Better butts are the rage! What if you have a butt with no shape and firmness? What if you sit in the office all day and then go home and sit all evening? That will not help your butt.
Do you need to go to the gym? Actually no. There are many exercises to develop your better butt right at home.
What if you are man? Do men benefit from a better butt? Yes, ask any women if they like a man’s muscular butt over a flat or fat butt. So men are not excluded. The same exercises apply for both men and women.
Curves are sexy. If you have the right curves, you have the right look and you will without a doubt be attractive. Firm bodies are sexy. Being in great shape is sexy. Being physically active is sexy.
Squats – This is the prime exercise to build the gluteus maximus muscle. Start without weights. Set up a butt exercise day 1 – 2 times a week to allow for time to recuperate your muscles. Start with a 1 set with 10 – 20 reps. Increase your reps and sets each week.
Lunges – This is another excellent exercise to develop a better butt. Start out with 1 set of 10 to 20 reps and ramp up the sets and reps each week.
Stiff Legged Deadlifts – Keep the weights as close to your legs as you go down. Always keep your back straight. Go down as low as you can while feeling a deep stretch in your hamstring, and then come back up with your back straight. Same set and rep amount as the other 2 exercises.
So, your butt workout day first week may look like.
Squats – 1 set, 15 reps
Lunges – 1 set, 15 reps
Stiff Legged Deadlifts – 1 set, 15 reps
Keep a journal of you sets, reps, weight amount for each workout. Track how you are getting stronger each workout. Then you can start setting goals for yourself.
After a period of weeks your workout may look like this after adding weights
Squats – 3 sets, 15 reps, X pounds
Lunges – 3 sets, 15 reps, X pounds
Stiff Legged Deadlifts – 3 sets, 15 reps, X pounds
You will feel a difference in your butt right away. Yes, it may be really sore after the first week but keep it up. The soreness will be less as your body gets used to a good workout. You will start noticing your butt is getting tighter and firmer. Eventually it will get more shape. You may be surprised!
You can add in new exercises for variety but you should always keep some of the core exercises in your routine.
If your awesome butt is hidden under a layer of fat you will need to go further than just the core exercises. That is a whole other article. But proper diet, weight workouts, and cardio workouts will trim the fat off to reveal your true, beautiful butt.
