Best Butt Workout Routines
Butt Workout and Butt Lift ExercisesThere is a lot of information out there are what butt exercises work best for maximum results. Some fitness experts say squats and lunges, while others recommend step ups and deadlifts.
The butt workout routines that have yielded the best results for me have been squats, deadlifts, and leg lifts.
The Best Butt Workout Routines Work Every Glute MusclesMost people think the butt is made up of one big muscle, but it's not. Did you know that there are three main muscles in the Butt or Glute area? The largest but muscle is the Gluteus Maximus and it is largely responsible for the general shape of your butt and how it's supported. Also, the maximus is responsible for hip extension and outward rotation. Next, the Medius-"The function of the Meduis is to lift the thigh and femur up..." -Butt-up.net
The medius and minimus are the muscles on the sides of the hip that are responsible for the internal rotation of the thigh.
The smallest of the three muscles, the Gluteus Minimus,sits underneath the gluteus medius. This muscle is responsible for internal and external rotation in the hip.
So you see, your glutes are not just there to attract attention (smile). The glutes primary role is to make the upper leg go in alignment with the spine.
"The Gluteus Maximus is important in determining the lower body strength of the person as it is the muscle that is vital for keeping a human standing upright and steady." -butt-up.net
The best butt workouts for the Glute muscles are: squats, lunges, step ups, hip extensions, one legged deadlifts, and of course, running and walking exercises.
Butt Exercises I've TriedI've done several butt workout routines that have exercises to target the glute muscles" P90X, Windsor Pilate workouts, Slim in Six, Walk Away the Pounds, and Brazil Butt Lift. My favorites, for glute muscles workouts would have to be Windsor Pilates and Brazil Butt Lift.
Butt Workout: Windsor PilatesPilates lower body routine really targets the three muscle groups and will give you a great workout for your hips and thighs, but you won't get the cardio in, which is what I look for in workouts to improve myr cardiovascular strength. Don't get me wrong though, on my lazy days I pop the Windsor Pilates dvd in and get a good butt workout!
Brazil Butt Workout RoutinesBrazil Butt Lift. The butt workout routines in Brazil Butt Lift target the major glute muscles to help firm, tighten, and lift the butt. What I like about Brazil Butt Lift is that it incorporate just about all of the recommended butt workouts that I've seen on other websites: deadlifts, lunges, squats, jogging, and cardio. I love that I get my cardio in while working on my glutes. As I've mentioned before Cardio is one of my weaknesses, but I work at it constantly to burn calories. And in the mean time I get to strengthen my glutes and improve my cardiovascular health. Some women shy away from glute exercises, "They don't want to 'lose' their butt." Remember, the primary goal is over all health. Weakness in the glutes will cause other muscles in the body to try and compensate.
For example, you could end up with back pain because your back is trying to do what your weak glute muscles... should be doing. Remember it's all connected!
Proper Diet For Weight Loss In Hip and ButtI think it goes without saying that you do have to eat clean to lose weight. But, just in case, I'm going to say it anyway. What I've come to realize with any exercise program is that my diet (what I eat) is key factor in my succees. Even more so because my excessive weight stores in my hips, thighs, and stomach. As such, following a good diet is necessary.
