If you’re looking for a way to make your butt look fabulous in your new Bia Brazil fitness capris, things can look dismal. Just how many squats will it take to reach J-Lo status? Are lunges truly the key to reaching a bulbous buttocks worthy of the gods, that even Ares would fawn over as though your ass were the gluteal embodiment of Aphrodite? It seems too simple. A picture of a pipe is not a pipe. Reading the eHow article on Growing your Butt will have you stuck at square one, running in circles until you simply give up, leaving your big-bootied dreams to come true only upon babyweight gains or the office-job-30. Never fear, ladies. Below I will give you links – yes links, I am not a fitness expert, nor do I pretend to be – to a few different people who seem to have an actual clue about how to grow that booty, and aren’t just regurgitating the typical squats/lunges garbage. Here we go. In no particular order:
This man seems to know it all – exactly what is keeping you from getting your best butt, and exactly how to fix it. This is a bit of a long article, but the gold is at the end. He also has a YouTube Channel with lots of interesting and instructional videos.
Jamie Atlas, another fitness connoisseur, has an interesting take on the traditional lunge. Click this link if you want something less involved than the previous one. There is some background info in that link, and he provides a simple video that explains how to do your lunges differently to get better results. The video can be found here: Jamie Atlas Glute Video.
4HB is a book (check it out if you’re interested. Very cool stuff.) written by a master of fitness and time. He has laid out what he believes to be the best workout for women to get a nice butt. It involves two simple moves, and some kettlebell swings. Lisa Johnson has made a nice, clear video of the exact workout here: Lisa Johnson 4HB Butt Workout.
Of all my perusing over the years, those are the most popular, interesting, and well-informed workouts for increasing your butt size that I have found. Take a look, and please let me know what you think! And of course, if none of these workouts work for you, Pocketed Fitness Bottoms definitely accentuate your ass-ets. Much love.
