Give Yourself A Better Rear View With Hip Sculpting Moves

Posted on May 13, 2008. Filed under: Fitness | Tags: , , , |

Does my butt look big in this? Where have we heard that before? But it’s true isn’t we all worry whether we overfill or underfill our jeans either way, it doesn’t give us a great rear view. What can you do about it?

Well, if you’re wanting to fill out your favourite pair of jeans, or perhaps trim your hips you will need to target the lower body with some real maximising and aerobic moves that will give you the butt you want. Why is it so tough to get your lower half in shape?

The muscles of the lower body make up the largest percentage of muscle mass in the body, and working them means you will need to engage multiple muscles with compound exercises, and combine that with aerobic conditioning for the best results. Try Incorporating these moves into your workout and check your rear vision often as you watch your butt become jean friendly.

First of all before we start lets talk about form, you will not get the results you want if your form is off, and you might even injure yourself. So practice each move in slow motion until you know you have it down, try doing it in front of a mirror to check your form.

What you are looking to do is some lunges, squats, and leg presses; these exercises have quite a lot in common to make sure of proper form, such as:

  • keep your body weight on the heel of your foot, you can test that you have it right by wriggling or lifting your toes, in your shoes. If your body weight is on the heel your toes should move freely. This way you will engage the muscles in the back of the leg more, the glutes and hamstrings, and place less stress on your knees.
  • Use a mirror to make sure that you knees are directly over or slightly behind your ankles. When doing squats it is ok to have the knees line up with the toes, but no further. If you haven’t got a mirror, look down and if you can see your toes, you’re in the right position, if you can’t adjust your position.
  • Keep your spine erect, shoulders back and chest out, as you move downward during the exercise, it’s easy to allow your body to fall forward. Be careful as this can cause back stress and it prevents the targeted muscles from doing their job.

Now focus on moving or flowing through a complete range of motion, to engage the muscles more directly and make them work harder for best results. Bend deeply through the hip and thigh when doing lunges, squats and leg presses. If after all this you are still not feeling it, try adding some weight to your activity, some hand or shoulder weights added progressively can add the challenge you need. Finally don’t forget about your friend repetition, add more reps to help you give yourself that fine looking rear view and wear those jeans with pride.
