Doesn’t it sound appealing, ladies (and gents), to have a tight and toned butt? Of course, it does, but the chances the chances are you just don’t know how to achieve this. If you’re wondering how you can burn leg and thigh fat, and get your buttocks in shape, you’re in luck! In this article, we share with you five exercises to keep your butt tight and toned!
A little disclaimer before we begin. We expect this article to be of interest primarily to girls, ladies, and women (thus, the pictures). If you’re a man, however, nothing stops you from training your butt – it’s a great workout, which carries plenty of health and fitness benefits. We’d only encourage you! So carry on reading regardless of your gender – it’s time to train your butt!
It’s important to understand, that the buttocks are muscles in our body. And like with any other muscle, positive results only come with hard work.
Obviously, while training your butt, you’ll be exercising a few other muscles. Typically, your waist, thighs, and legs will benefit the most but, depending on the routine, other muscles can also be exercised. And this is very good news! In the end of the day, healthy, fresh and sexy looks don’t come with a tight butt alone.
We will start, of course, with a classic exercise – squats. It seems, however, that a lot of us, both men and women, don’t do squats regularly enough. That’s a shame because this exercise can perform miracles for your butt! Many people avoid squats because they mistakenly think that they will drastically increase the buttocks muscle mass. For women, in particular, it’s highly unlikely.
For our bodies it is a very natural movement and, if done correctly, squats can get you that tight and toned butt you always wanted. And they’re great for your thighs and waist as well!
Lunges are a great exercise to build up your strength and improve the body balance. If performed correctly, they also exercise your butt. As with any routine, lunges can be performed on their own or as part of a wider program. For best results, we recommend combining them with the rest of the exercises in this article.
The chances are, you have heard of this exercise before. Similarly to squats and lunges, it develops several muscles, namely waist, back thighs and, rather unsurprisingly, buttocks. Not only do hyperextensions tighten these muscles, they also shape them. Fantastic! And if you want to achieve even better results, you can perform the exercise with some additional weight – a few kilograms, for better effect.
4. Romanian Deadlift (RDL)
This is an extremely popular exercise, especially among women. Rather unsurprisingly, given the title of this article, but it is because RDL works miracles for the butt The focus of the load during the exercise is directly on the buttocks and back thighs – that’s why it’s so effective.
5. Stair Climbing
This basic activity, that we do on a daily basis, can transform your butt – that’s true. The reason why is not hard to see – a rapid ascent up the stairs places a great load on thighs and buttocks, and tightens your butt. If performed on a regular basis, stairs climbing can deliver quick results. And all it is is a basic day-to-day activity. Who knew!
Don’t Forget To Eat Well
These are five fantastic exercises to make your butt tight and toned. With them, you can achieve impressive results in less than a month. But before you hit the gym, we wanted to draw you attention to one more thing.
It’s very important to remember why we’re doing these exercises in the first place – to get rid of fat in buttocks. The not-so-good news is that often in women, the concentration of fat in buttocks is higher relative to the rest of the body. That’s not nice, but it’s just the way our bodies work. Fat first starts to store in abdomen and buttocks. That’s why it is so hard to burn it in these areas: in abs for men, and in buttocks for women. There is something you can do outside of the gym to support your training – get rid of harmful eating habits that fatten your buttocks. Here we list three simple things that your butt will thank you for later.
● Cook home, and eliminate all prepared food and ready meals from your diet
● Replace sweets with fruit – it may sound hard but you can do it
