These days, it’s all about fitness and looking and feeling good in your body. The most recent fitness trend is having a nice, shapely butt. And how to get such a butt? Well, it’s obvious, you can’t be overweight and look amazing, right? So you need a good balanced diet to lose or maintain a healthy weight. When you’ve achieved that, it’s time to tighten up your body, and what better way to do that than with good exercises. This article will present some of the most effective exercise to get the butt you want and become more satisfied with your looks. Having a great but will boost your self-confidence and make you feel more attractive, and of course, you’ll look better in whatever you wear.
Before you start exercising, you need to have a few things in mind. In order to be effective, each of the exercises should be done in 2-2 sets. In each set you should do 12-15 repetitions if you want to grow muscle. The weights you use should challenge you- if it’s too easy, it won’t work.
Now you’re ready. Check out these extremely effective exercises for getting an amazing butt.
1. Deep squats
You can do this exercise at the gym or at home, with or without weights (if you’re a total beginner start with your weight only, until you build up strength). For this exercise it is important to go as low as you can, while keeping your back straight. By doing this, you will activate your gluteus muscles to the maximum.
Your feet should be spread at the width of your shoulders, or a little wider, and while you’re descending to a low squat position, make sure you’re not stressing your spine. Also, make sure that your knees don’t move sideways- holding your palms together in front of your chest will help with that.
If doing 12-15 repetitions without weights is easy for you, take some weights and hold them in front of your chest. If you don’t have any weights, you could fill up a water bottle with sand, or find some easy-to-hold object that you have at home. Besides making your butt shapelier, this exercise will also help you build up the strength of your core muscles as well as improve your balance.
