5 Tips to Build Your Booty

October 25, 2007

 

  1. Ladies don’t be afraid of leg exercises.  A lot of women think that building their legs will only make them “bigger”.  Well they will get bigger if you only do resistance training and forget to tweak your diet and add cardio! Most lower-body exercises include the glutes, otherwise known as the “toosh”, and will help firm and tone that backside.
  2. Kickboxing is a great form of cardio that uses the quads and glutes to lift and push.  I have seen all my female clients improve their glutes through this and get their own “butt lift”.
  3. Spinning also can kick your butt literally if you climb those hills!!!!
  4. Stair climbing and I don’t mean the stair master.  Try taking every other stair next time you have steps to climb.  Be sure to have your entire foot secure on the step ahead of you though before you transfer your body weight.  GO SLOWLY.  The slower the better.  Caution- don’t do this in heels please!
  5. Isometric training– depending on the state of your knees, a wall sit or isometric squat will burn your bottom into shape!  Start to perform a squat, stick you butt back behind you as you lower yourself downlike you were going to sit back on a chair.  When you get 75% of the way down to where you can still hold yourself upright, stop and hold!  Hold it for 60-90 seconds.Repeat as many times as you can handle!
