Many times, women feel left out when an article focuses on male fitness goals such as biceps, a toned chest and abdominal muscles. A well sculpted bottom happens to be an important aspect of a female’s good looks more than it is to a man.
The question is: can one change how one’s butt looks like naturally? The answer is yes.
According to Jonson Busingye, a gym instructor at Kampala Serena hotel, all it takes is working on a muscle group called glutes found in the buttocks. The glutes or gluteal muscles are the largest and one of the strongest muscles in the human body. Actively working them out with different exercises can make them stronger and consequently bigger.
Working on your glutes helps improve your speed and springiness and will protect your lower back from injury. Most importantly, a well sculpted butt will improve any female’s confidence. Glute exercises are meant to target the muscles in the buttocks which extend to the lower back and hips.
Such exercises include squats, lunges, kicks, deadlifts, hip thrusts, step-ups, bridges and many of these exercises are simple and can be done at home or at the gym.
Having strong glutes further protects the body from injury and pain as its main job is to support and stabilize your hips, which control knee and ankle movement, as well as your entire trunk from neck to pelvis. Toning your glutes contribute to your overall strength and they help you sit, stand, run, walk, jump and hike. Working the glutes realigns the body out of the flexed position and can help with imbalances that may have been caused from working at home.
