Is your bum stopping you from wearing your favourite clothes or baring almost all in that sexy bikini? If your bum is stopping you from wearing your favourite clothes or that bikini you've had your eye on, we're here to help. A below par bum can really knock your confidence and leave you feeling unhappy with the way you look.
Firstly, get your diet right which means getting plenty of high-quality protein (e.g. chicken, fish, lean beef and Definity Protein Plus), essential fats (e.g. fish, nuts and seeds) along with fibrous carbs, fruits and vegetables. But once your diet's in place, these four fabulous exercises will help get your butt into shape in double quick time.
Hold a dumbbell in each hand, letting the dumbbells hang down at your sides. Take a large stride forward with one leg while keeping the other leg set in place. Your legs should be a little way apart to aid balance. Bend the front knee until the knee of the back leg is almost in contact with floor. Imagine your legs as two 90 degree angles at the knee. Return to the start position and repeat with the opposite leg. Keep your torso upright and make sure that the lead knee points in the same direction as the foot throughout the movement.
Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and let them hang at your sides. Begin by squatting as though you are going to sit down in a chair. Descend until your thighs are roughly parallel with the floor. Return to the start position and repeat. Your knees should point in the same direction as your feet throughout movement.
Dumbbell step up
Stand next to a raised platform (i.e. flat bench) and step onto the bench with one foot and then bring up the other foot so that you end up standing on the bench with both feet. To return to the floor, carefully step backward off of the bench with the same foot you started with. Repeat the movement with the opposite foot for the desired number of repetitions.
