Lately with the craze of the Kardashian’s and all of these celebrities getting surgeries to increase the size of their “booty”, I am finding a lot of female clients are coming in asking for the same. “I want to build up my butt”, “how do I get a butt like Kim?”, “Is there a way to get a bigger bum without surgery or wearing bum pads?” (yes believe it or not, some women are actually wearing undergarments that have bum pads in them! – what has the world come too??)
I have one piece of advice for all women out there:
BE HAPPY WITH THE BODY YOU WERE BLESSED WITH AND JUST WORK TO IMPROVE THAT BODY!
No one should ever have to put themselves at risk by having substances injected into their body just to please anyone else. To be honest, everyone is born with a body type whether you are naturally long and lean, pear shaped, or all around balanced. It is hard to change your body-type; however, you can workout in a way to improve what you were blessed with. If you are naturally long and and lean, you might want to train by lifting heavier weights and eating properly to build more muscle. I am naturally athletic and muscular which means I will never look like a runway model, and I am ok with that! I have accepted my body type and just train and eat in a way to keep MY BODY looking the best it can – lean and fit
Before I show you a great exercise to work your butt and your core muscles, just take away one thing from this little blog – look in the mirror and see the things you like about yourself and stop “self bashing” or comparing yourself to what you see in magazines. You are amazing, the sooner you realize this the better your life will be! We only get one life, don’t spend it starving yourself or being negative about how you look
