Do you need a natural butt lift? If you feel your butt could do with a boost, then you need to lunge and squat. And if that fills you with dread because you suffer from exercise boredom, then allow me to help.
I’m here to help make exercise boredom a thing of the past. Do you ever get bored of repeating the same exercises? Or, are you always looking for ways to spice up your workout? If your answer is yes, keep on reading, because I’m going to share five ways you can add a twist to a simple but effective butt lift and toning exercise.
It’s important to keep your routine fun, otherwise you’ll be so much more likely to make excuses to avoid exercising. As a fitness trainer, I always hear about the things that people love and hate about certain exercises, and I feel that it’s my job to keep people excited and motivated so they don’t quit.
If you hate an exercise or it just doesn’t feel quite right, simply find an alternative move that will work the same muscles. Don’t worry if you feel that you don’t know how to adapt an exercise, that’s why I’m here. I’ll cover a different move every few weeks so you can build up your own exercise library. Getting creative may just keep your fitness goals on track and stop you from getting that dreaded feeling of ‘Here we go again.’
Today, I’ll show you five ways you can get creative with a lunge. Once you get the hang of one, two, or all five of them, you’ll be well on your way to a naturally lifted butt.
You need to exercise your gluteus maximus to achieve a natural butt lift, and a simple lunge exercise has been used for toning up glutes since before you or I were born. You should be reassured that there is so much evidence of the effectiveness of lunges. Just because a lunge is an old-school exercise doesn’t mean it’s outdated. Lunges effectively work all the muscles in the lower body—especially those in your backside.
I also like the benefit of a combination exercise. So, if you feel up to it, try holding lightweight dumbbells while lunging to help tone up your arms.
The definition of a lunge according to my dictionary is:
I’m afraid there will be no thrusting or outstretched arms with my fitness definition of a lunge, but we will be attacking fat and seizing the moment to work on getting you a natural butt lift!
The word lateral means sideways, and lunging to the side will work your inner thigh muscles as well as your glutes.
This exercise is a challenge for your most important muscle of all—your brain. We’re going to combine lunge moves 1-4 together.
Your brain, arms and lower body should be exhausted once you’ve completed three sets of ten.
In order to succeed with any fitness plan, you must keep your body and mind engaged. Challenging yourself often with complex movements will keep you interested and prevent you from getting bored of doing the same old moves. The added bonus of adapting a very basic but effective exercise is that the slight variations will make your body engage muscles in a different way. This varied muscle recruitment process can speed up the results process.
Why not join me on a journey toward getting a natural butt lift by giving lunges a try? Listen to your body and have fun.
