Let’s face it – most guys love a great butt. But that doesn’t come easy for most women. It takes a lot of work and effort to create a great behind view that most men can’t take their eyes off of. And there’s other benefits to working out you bottom, too. Not only will you look better on stage but you’ll look better and feel better in your clothes, too.
Your first step is to decide what kind of bum you have. There’s lots of different kind of bum shapes and the butt type you have will affect the type of exercises you need to do to get it into tip top shape.
Before you start an exercise routine, figure out what your goals are. Do you want to lose fat or shape your bottom? What kind of body do you have? What kind of exercises do you need to do to create a bottom line that will best accentuate the rest of your body. A tiny little bum won’t look good on everyone and isn’t even possible for everyone. For someone women, the Kim Kardashian look with a big full bottom is going to be your best bet. Find the beauty in your body type and feel good about it and then work on creating the best butt for you.
Cardio is always a good thing to have in your fitness routine and if you’re doing cardio on a regular basis you will have less body fat. Whatever else you are doing, make sure that you include things like swimming, walking, jogging, dancing and other aerobic activities at least 3 times a week.
After cardio, it’s time to get focused. There are some exercises for your bottom that require a gym membership and fitness machines. But there are lots of simple exercises you can do at home, too.
Here are some of the most popular exercises you can do at home to improve you butt:
Squats: Learn to squat ladies. Women who squat have the most firm and lovely bottoms. They get that nice round bubble butt shape that men and women love. It’s a simple exercise that you can do anywhere and you don’t have to dedicate a lot of time to it at once. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and angle your toes out at about thirty degrees. Keep your feet flat on the floor and don’t raise your heels. Push your knees out towards your toes. Your knees should be pointing out slightly, like your toes are – not facing forward. Reach your arms forward for balance and keep your back straight. Go down as far as you are able but don’t go down so far that your upper thighs go past being vertical. Squats are great for your butt but they also strengthen your back and are good for your cores so this exercise will benefit you in many ways. Do a couple squats while you’re waiting for your girl friend in the bathroom, while you’re at home and waiting for the pot to boil, or when you get out of bed in the morning.
Bridge: This is an easy one to do at home and it is not hard to get the form right. Add a few of these to your daily routine and you’ll soon start to see a difference. For this exercise you need to lay on the floor on your back with your knees up and your feet flat on the ground. Once you’re ready, all you have to do is press your hips towards the ceiling and squeeze your glutes (your bum cheeks) together. Hold it for a few seconds and then lower your hips back to the group. You can repeat this as many times as you want. If this is pretty easy for you, a simple modification will give you more of a challenge. When you raise your hips to the roof, raise one leg and hold it vertically as you lift and squeeze. Alternate legs to make sure each side gets the same amount of attention!
Lunges: These are another exercise that you can do almost anywhere and you can do them while you’re waiting for things. Stand straight with your feet a few inches apart, facing forward. Lunge forward so that the leg in front of you forms a right angle. The leg that is behind should dip down with the knee towards the floor (but not touching) and the ankle raised. Switch legs and do it again. You can do lunges in place or you can do them while lunging down a long hallway or across the living room.
