I think just about all women desire to have a high, tight, round and firm booty. Those of us who were not blessed with fullness in this area do hundreds of squats to build and shape them. But there are other reasons to work out that booty.
Did you know your glutes are the largest and strongest muscles in your body? The 3 muscles that make up your sexy backside are the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus; and together they work to abduct, rotate and extend the hip. What does that really mean? They stabilize and support you while sitting down, standing, picking up heavy objects or climbing stairs. Strengthening your glutes can help improve posture and athletic performance as well as decrease your risk for injuries.
So you can see how important it is to work the booty. However, there are many exercises that can help lift and strengthen without doing hundreds of squats. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love squats, but they can only do so much.
If you are confused about what type of workouts to perform to develop a sexy backside, I have an answer for you – the “Ultimate Booty Workouts” book!
ULTIMATE BOOTY WORKOUTS, Exercises to Build, Lift and Scupt an Amazing Butt
This book provides a 12-week progressive resistance-training program that targets the muscles of the legs, butt and lower back. It can be used as a stand-alone program or in conjunction with your current routine. It is broken down into 3 phases – Setting a foundation, Building muscle, and Leaning and cutting and works for all fitness levels.
What I like about this book is that it isn’t just a book of exercises. Here is what you get:
Why you should work the booty
Describes in detail how to perform the exercise properly, with photos
Provides a warm up and a cool down – including foam rolling and stretching
Provides workout templates based on goals
And just FYI, I will be incorporating phase’s 2 & 3 into my own gym routine. If you want a sexy booty and aren’t sure where to start, you can find this book on Amazon and Tamara’s blog fitknitchick.com
