A woman’s greatest asset
I have come across this dilemma so many times, and the question of how to lose weight and keep your bum?
Women mostly ask this question. However, there are a few men wanting to lose weight or maintain a nice bum. In fact, some of the women wanted to keep their bum so much they would live with a few rolls of body fat else were.
Also, we want to cover this subject to protect the men out there. when they hear the dreaded question “does my bum look big in this?” and sometimes we have to lie to protect your feelings and also to protect our cheeks from a slap.
There is one question us men dread…. “does my bum look big in this?” Seriously girls stop asking this!
We say no and you don’t believe us, we say yes ( never say yes) and we are in a world of pain. Anyway, this post will give you one sexy ass.
So why is the bum looking good so important
We guess the only people who can answer this is a woman. We posed this question to my fiancée. this is what she said –
“to me, it’s a feminine thing and it brings attention, and I know you have a sneaky look it also helps when choosing clothes “
This got me thinking, the bum gets attention from males and females alike, especially when you’re wearing that sleek black dress. In fact, its the same for us men too.
Clothes fit us better when we have a developed chest and shoulders and just like a woman we also get attention from men and woman.
This is only one woman’s perspective so please leave a comment on why its important to you.
Making the bum look good!
I hope losing weight from other areas of your body isn’t a problem because unfortunately, you can’t just target a specific area to lose weight, your body will take it from where ever it wants first, usually from the place you store it the most in my experience.
Pretty much all humans have the same shape, bones and size and its normally fat and muscle that gives you the shape that you are, so to lose weight and keep your bum, were going to build more muscle to lose weight, this is how you are going to keep your bum and look and feel better not only will your bum look good other parts of your body will too!
3 Top exercises for the perfect bum
There is one exercise that should be a staple of any bum enhancing routine, it’s been around forever and it never goes out of fashion…. THE SQUAT is so good elite athletes use it, the military use it and just about anyone who has ever done an exercise program.
You can adapt weight to this exercise or change your stance implement a jump into it so many variations that you are guaranteed to lose weight and keep your bum.
THE SQUAT uses so many muscles from your calves right up to your abs and lower back it literally torches fat and helps tone not only your bum but your core and lower body…. now that is worth a go?
THE LUNGE this is another quality exercise that used by fitness professional worldwide and just like the squat hits multiple muscles and will also improve balance.
THE HIP-LIFT this is great at working your lower back and sculpting your bum and it’s really easy to do and especially good if you have bad knees.
please leave a comment below if these exercises are not suitable for you as there are many others to try.
How many should I do and How?
We really need to find out where your fatigue point is, we can find this out easily,
By doing each excess to the point you just can’t physically do anymore and then divide that number by 90% this will be your starting point.
Every day add one more repetition on so for instance, 20 squats dived this by 90% that leaves you with 18 and every day just add one on!
you will be amazed how easy it gets in a short period of time that’s when you need to come back and check for progression exercises.
Ok so now you know what the exercises work, below is a step by step guide with pictures so you can lose weight and keep your bum.
