Get A Bigger, Firmer & Rounder Butt With These Moves
That bum isn’t going to shape itself
Let’s get right down to it: The world is largely obsessed with butts. They’re everywhere, really—from commercials to music videos to lyrics and advertisements. There are pieces of lingerie targeted directly at making our butts look firmer and more pronounced. But you have to admit, nothing beats getting that look naturally.
For that lift
If you want to lift your butt, there’s really no other way to do it than by gaining some muscle behind you. A rounder shape comes with the lift as well, so you’re going to get your time’s worth with these exercises.
Perky lifts target the center and outer glute and start with you getting on all fours with your knees directly under your hips and your hands aligned with your shoulders. Lift your right leg until it’s parallel to the floor and don’t forget to point your toes. Lift your leg a little higher and begin tracing the letter P, starting from the base. Lower your leg, switch and repeat.
Killer Kicks are for your side hips and the center of your glute. It also starts with your hands and knees on the floor, with your right leg extended to the back. Once in this position, bend your right knee and swing your right leg to the side. Get back to the original position, switch and repeat.
For that tone
General knowledge will tell you that squats are the way to go when you want to tone your butt. And while it definitely helps, they only target one specific area of your bottom. Get everything down there involved to get the best results.
Toe Taps were made to make the lower part of your butt burn. To begin, lie on the floor with your arms to your sides. Lift your feet by bending your knees at a 90 degree angle. Slowly and gently tap your left toes to the floor and then alternate to the right. If your lower back starts to hurt, don’t touch your toes all the way down to the floor.
Single-Leg Front Raises are for thigh stretching, but they’re also great for butt tightening. All you need to do is stand with your feet hip-width apart. Afterwards, bend your right leg and raise it about three inches off the floor and extend both arms in front of you at chest height. Keeping your right arm steady, lift your left arm above your head and hold for three counts before reuniting it with your left arm. Alternate between your arms until you’ve done 8 reps in total, and then switch the leg. You can even add 5-pound weights to make it more difficult.
These relatively simple but incredibly effective exercises will get you on the right track. Just don’t forget to work within your limits and consult professionals as often as you can.
