We all want a better posterior, and now more than ever it has become so trendy to have a big booty. But is it even possible? And if so, how do you do it?
It is absolutely possible to build your dream booty along with improving skin condition around the area, making things more perky, full and curvaceous. On the flip side, there is nothing worse for your booty than sitting on it too much.
Bulgarian Split Squat (pg92)
For this exercise, the only equipment you need is a free bench. Stand with your back to a bench roughly three feet away, feet shoulder width apart, and rest the front of your right foot on the bench behind you (Position 1). Take a couple of minutes to find your balance – try looking straight ahead and focusing on one point. Standing nice and tall, begin to bend your left leg, stretching out your glute slowly (Position 2). Be sure not to touch your right knee off the floor. Then push yourself back up, focusing on your glutes and quads. Repeat on your left leg.
Sumo Squat (pg93)
This is one of my favourite exercises at the minute – I use a long bar and more of a deadlift technique, but for now I will show you a super easy version using a dumbbell. The major difference with this and the classic squat (page 92) is that your stance is much wider and your toes point outwards. Using a dumbbell that you’re comfortable lifting helps you to maintain your balance and stay central.
Start with a wide stance, holding one end of the dumbbell with both hands and letting it hang (Position 1). Begin to lower yourself until your quads are almost parallel with the floor and you feel a big stretch in the glutes (Position 2). Using your heels and glutes, drive yourself back up to standing and repeat.
Curtsy Squat (pg93)
Start standing up tall, with your feet shoulder width apart, holding a dumbbell you’re comfortable lifting between your hands (Position 1). Next, lower your right leg behind your body, taking a big step out to the left and bending both knees as if you’re doing a curtsy (Position 2). Push back up, focusing on your quads and glutes. Repeat the move using your left leg. You can make this exercise more difficult by adding additional weight. This is such a fun exercise!
