My top 5 gravity defying, butt lifting tips!
Some people say the nicest things sometimes.
So my birthday came….and now I’m 34
I don’t really mind, I still feel super young and full of energy.
I also had a super fab time going out with my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday.
After putting a few piccys of our night out up on my facebook , twitter & instagram page I had some lovely comments from some lovely people *blush*
So a ‘how do I get my bottom like yours Tara’ later, and I’m inspired to write this blog post on my top butt lifting tips!
Remember with these exercises – Lift Heavy!
Oh yes, don’t fear the weights ladies. I promise, it’s the best thing you could ever do if you want real body change success!
Standing upright with feet shoulder width apart, shoulders back and down, core muscles engaged. Whilst holding on to your dumbbells, squat down, push your hips back, keep your back straight and ensure your knees do not go over your toes. Go as low as you can with good form and return to the original position, pushing up from the heels. Repeat
- GOOD MORNINGS
Standing upright, feet hip width apart, keep your legs straight, core engaged and shoulder back & down. Take dumbbells out in front as you bend at the hips, lowering the dumbbells to the ground, following your own range of movement and always ensuring that you keep your core strong and back straight. Slowly lift back up to original position and repeat.
- SIDE LUNGE JUMPS
Start with right foot centre to the body and the left foot out to the side. Keeping core strong, take dumbbell down to the right foot whilst bending the knee and taking your hips back. Power up through the heel of your right foot and swap foot positions so the left foot is now central and the right foot is out to the side. With each movement, ensure you reach your dumbbell down to your foot and bring the opposite hand up to your shoulder. Always keep good form and ensure your back is straight and core strong throughout.
