It seems like a great butt should not be a big deal but it is because so many guys love the look of a nice firm bottom. When you walk away are all eyes on you? If not, don’t worry. It’s not too late. You can make your bottom line look amazing. As a perk, you’ll look even better in your every day clothing, too.
First, ask yourself, what kind of a butt do you have. Believe it or not, there is more than one shape that is appealing. Knowing what your butt type is will affect the types of exercises that you should focus on.
Know your exercise goals. Do you need to shape up your derriere or do you need to lose fat? What is your body type? Find out which exercises you should do in order to create a shape that your entire body will appreciate. Not everyone can have a tiny bum. It’s simply not possible for everyone. And even if it was, it wouldn’t look good on every woman. Figure out what your natural shape is and it will be easier to decide what kind of back view you should be aiming for.
One of the best things you can do for your body is cardio and that applies to everyone. If you have a fitness routine that includes regular cardio, you’re off to a great start. Cardio includes exercise like walking, swimming, dancing, jogging and other activities that make your heart rate increase.
But what else can you do? There are many exercises that you can do and working with a trainer for a couple of sessions can help you a lot.
There are three exercises that are good for everyone though.
- 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.
