Over the past few days I have had women ask me how to improve their backside. “I don’t like this…right here,” they say with a snarl. “Or this part back there.”
You know what? We are women. We are meant to have curves. We all have unique figures. Buttttttt (pun intended)…having strong glutes has many benefits. A strong butt can help with posture, alleviate back pain, and improve athleticism. AND, since it is one of the biggest muscles in the body, and muscle burns calories even during rest, a firm butt is a fat-burning furnace. Okay, it also looks really nice to have a toned and perky backside. There, I said it.
So go get er’ done!!
I have two side notes:
1. I once again apologize for my twins duking it out in the midst of this video. They sense that I am doing something productive and that can’t fly!!
2. If you have diastasis recti and/or urinary incontinence from exercise, be cautious of doing the jumping lunges and stick with the regular lunge. The rest of the exercises are diastasis recti-safe.
