I have decided that 35 is going to be the year I really rock my ass. I have made a pointed effort over the last 18 months to give it extra attention in my workouts and to an extent it has paid off. Now it is time to take it to the next level. Listen, I am never going to train like a professional. Most of us won’t. My butt will probably never look like the one pictured above but I can make sure that it always looks fantastic in a pair of jeans and not shameful in a bikini.
Here is what I am doing:
1. Sticking to my tried and true interval cardio. There is no faster way to make your ass look ‘skinny fat’ if you overdo the running. Don’t do it, ladies!
2. Adding weight. You have to lift weight to grow muscle – especially the glutes. As you know, I am a big fan of the kettlebell. I started movements with a 20 lb (wimpy and not effective enough) I then moved up to a 35 lb for about a year and this past month I have started using the 54 lb kettlebell. It’s a killer but the added weight makes a BIG difference.
Don’t be scared of using heavy weights. Here is what can happen if you don’t…
Skinny? Yes. Hot? Uh, no.
3. Everyday commitment. I do 90 movements every. single. day. I vary between swings, plie jumps and deadlifts. All heavily weighted. That is the key to a bangin’ booty.
*I will keep you posted on my posterior’s progress and want to hear what you all are doing too!*
