Women often worry that lifting weights will make them ‘big and bulky’. However when it comes to strength training for women there are many misconceptions.

 

If you are like most women regular strength training is unlikely to make you bulk up…WHY?

 

Women’s bodies respond differently to strength training.

 

Generally when women lift weights as part of their weekly exercise program they find they develop a stronger, leaner physique but they do not bulk up. The reason why is due to major differences between men and women’s hormonal makeup.

 

Men have a far greater concentration of testosterone. This is the chief hormone that makes them manly. It is termed an anabolic hormone and this ‘building’ hormone allows men to gain muscle more rapidly, especially when they do regular weight lifting.

 

Women on the other hand have far less testosterone making it difficult to dramatically increase muscle mass.

 

Strength training for women with a sluggish thyroid

 

Strength training can be very beneficial, particularly if have a low thyroid condition. Muscles are an important factor in raising your metabolism as muscles burn far more calories than body fat.

 

A greater amount of muscle really fires up your metabolism. The result is more calories are used for energy, which in turns means you lose weight.

 

This form of exercise is also the most effective way to help strengthen your muscles that tend to ache and get stiff when you have a low thyroid disorder.

 

Not only that, strength training can give you gorgeous toned curves and will help prevent bone and muscle breakdown which occurs naturally with aging.

 

So if you are getting sick of sweating over the cardio equipment at the gym why not hit the weights area and do a strength training session?

 

To get toned and super lean most experts recommend doing a planned strength training workout a minimum of 2-3 times per week. Always work within your limits especially on days when you feel more fatigued.

 

It is also possible to maximize your strength training efforts with a post-workout protein shake.

 

Just blend a good quality protein powder with a handful of fresh fruit within 30 minutes of finishing your routine. This will fuel your recovery; protein builds and repairs muscles and the carbohydrates from the fruit will provide the all-important energy for recovery.

Are you looking for ways to do some home butt workouts to lift your saggy butt?

 

If you do, this is a Video HERE for you to learn some home butt workouts

 

The home butt workouts I’m going to show you today are going to focus on the butt. They’re going to be very low impact and you can do them at home with me right now.

 

For the first exercise, we’re going to use a chair. It’s going to be a “supported squat.”

By balancing with a chair, make your legs wider than hips distance apart and your toes can point out. Take a deep breath in and when you exhale you’re just going to sit back just like you’re sitting down into a chair and then, come right back up.

 

So, we’re going to do this twenty times and every time you do it, squeeze the butt at the top to get that firm, lifted butt. Make sure that your spine is straight, your heart is lifted, and you’re really targeting in to those butt muscles.

 

We’re using the chair to make sure that we’re not putting too much pressure on our legs, on our pelvic muscles or the pelvic bones. We’re slowly just squatting down and coming up.

 

If you’re really focusing in on those butt muscles, it doesn’t take a lot to really get good results.

 

Squats are GREAT for getting a nice, round, FIRM butt just like that butt Kim Kardashian is famous for.

 

You don’t have to leave your home to get a good workout. You don’t even need a chair, you can use the wall. Or if you feel safe enough to let go of the chair, you can also put your hands on your hips.

 

But, if you’re recovering from a pregnancy, you want to take it really slow and you don’t want to go too fast.

 

Squeeze the butt together every time you come up. This is what’s going to give you a sculpted, round butt.

 

For the next exercise we’re also going to use the chair to do “kick backs.”

We’re going to do 1 leg at a time for ten kicks to the back.

Engage your core and use your butt muscle to lift that back leg. Keep your leg as straight as possible.

 

Now, we’re going to use that same leg and kick out to the side for ten. So, instead of alternating the legs, we’re isolating the same leg and on that same butt muscle.

 

This is going to get you more results in HALF the time.

You just want to get your workout over with when you have a new baby at home. You definitely don’t want to spend a lot of time working on your butt, that’s why you want to do these effective moves really fast.

 

All right. Now, let’s do it on the left side. Ten kick backs.

Make sure you’re keeping your spine lifted and your heart is lifted up. Make sure you’re breathing.

Keep that butt muscle engaged the whole time. You’re really sculpting while you’re chiseling away at that butt fat.

 

Now, on the left leg we’re going to do sidekicks. Kicking up and down.

Never go too far because you don’t want to put too much pressure on those pelvic muscles especially after a pregnancy. Your body has been through a lot and you want to be really gentle with yourself.

 

And what’s great about these home butt workouts is that they’re gentle, but also very effective.

 

For the next exercise, have a towel around you or anything that’s going to be comfortable for your knees. We’re going to come down onto the floor.

These are going to be “butt pulses” where you place your palms on the ground, making sure your knees are evenly distributed all the way.

 

Then you’re just going to lift that right leg up like you’re putting footprints on the ceiling.

We’re going to do ten of these. Again, we’re not putting any pressure on the abdominal area because the walls of the abdominal area are pretty weak right now. We’re really targeting the butt.

You can feel it starting to burn fat. That’s a good thing.

 

Do the left side. Put those footprints on the ceiling. You can feel that left glut muscle really starting to work right now.

It’s burning. But the good news is that you don’t have to do it for very long in order to get really great results.

 

You can place the towel down in order to support your back. Setting up for bridge pose, your feet are hips distance apart and your hands are palm flat on the floor. You’re going to lift your hips up and down.

 

We’re going to pulse for ten and every time you squeeze your butt cheeks together. This is going to really give you a nice, firm butt.

You want to get rid of the cellulite and all that extra fat that women hold while they’re in pregnancy.

 

We’re training our butt muscles to be tight and lean while we’re burning off that butt fat. The higher you lift your hips, the more you are engaging those butt muscles.

 

Think about how you want to sculpt your butt. This is where you envision your best butt you can imagine. Just when you think you want to give up, keep going.

 

Kim Kardashian works hard for that butt and I know she’s going to be getting her butt back in no time because she knows what it takes. Just a little bit of attention.

 

Now, we’re going to lift one leg and up and down for ten. This is where we’re isolating into that butt muscle. Feel the burn, that’s a good thing. Keep it going. Now, let’s go for the other side with the left leg. Squeeze the butt.

 

This is what separates you from every other woman who says they want a great butt.

 

Well, you are actually creating it right now. Chisel that butt, drop that butt fat. Go ahead and squeeze your knees up to your chest.

That was a home exercise.

 

You can do what Kim Kardashian can do to get the best butt of her life even before she had a baby.

Do these home butt workouts and you too will see the best butt of your life!

Here’s my tip on to getting a nice, balanced butt like Jennifer Lopez, we’re going to do an exercise called “wood chops.”

 

It’s great to use a weight, I’m using a 5 pound weight in this exercise, but you can also use a small medicine ball or even a jug of water.

 

So just use whatever you have around the house, you don’t need special equipment.

 

Just grab something that you can use for resistance. Resistance-training is what’s going to get you that nice, balanced butt that Jennifer Lopez has.

 

So these are called “wood chops.”

You are just going to step out to the left, lunge down and then come back. We are going to do 10 on each side. Whenever you push back really fire off that leg because that’s what really fires that glute.

 

You’ll feel it in both your right and your left glute, because we’re working both butt muscles at the same time. That’s going to give us that nice, balanced butt that Jennifer Lopez has.

 

It’s important to keep the tension on one side at a time, because this is what is going to really sculpt your butt muscles in way less time.

Instead of going back and forth and alternating right to left, we are isolating the tension on one side. One glute muscle is holding most of the tension.

 

Just think about Jennifer Lopez whenever you want to give up. Just focus on her. Use her for inspiration.

 

It’s amazing that she has a booty like that. She has had a kid, she’s got every excuse in the world but she keeps going.

 

All right, for a final exercise for you to get a Jennifer Lopez booty in record time we are going to do “standing lunge.”

 

We are going to use our shoulders as well because Jennifer Lopez doesn’t just have a great booty, she’s got beautiful shoulders.

 

When you have nice shoulders it complements the booty and it makes it look even more feminine and healthy.

 

So we are going to hold our arms our as we lunge forward with the right leg.

 

We are going to go down and then step back. So we are using that same isolation principle to work one glute at a time.

 

But you can see that even though I am using one muscle in my right leg, I am still working that back muscle on my left butt as well. These exercises are designed to get the maximum results in the least amount of time.

 

This is going to LIFT the saggy butt up.

This is going to get rid of cellulite.

This is going to make you look super sexy in your bikini, AND in those skinny jeans.

 

Notice how my spine is straight the whole time. All right, shake those shoulders and arms out. You feel it, can’t you? We are working those shoulders while we work the butt.

 

Let’s go to the other side. We are going to lunge down and then push back. When you push off that front foot, really explode. That’s working that butt even more. You are tightening and toning your butt while we are chiseling away at the butt fat.

 

So using the same leg is really targeting into those muscles and we are burning fat in even more time.

 

We are burning fat in less time while getting more muscle tone, more muscle definition and we are working both butt muscles the same time.

You’ll feel how your booty gets rounder and rounder. You’ll feel great. You deserve it.

 

My final tip for getting a Jennifer Lopez booty is confidence.

Remember, how you feel about your body is what is going to be reflected to the outside world.

 

Jennifer Lopez has this dialed. She is confident. She is sexy. She is rocking her curves and she loves the body that she was born in.

We can learn a lot from Jennifer Lopez…

 

Use these moves to get your Jennifer Lopez booty in record time.

Shakira is known for her beautiful booty and here are a few secrets that you can follow to get that same round, nice, beautiful butt.

 

The main thing is to make sure that you are working both of your glutes. Your glutes are your butt muscles.

 

A lot of people isolate one glute and then the other, but you want to make sure every exercise you are doing you are working both of those gluts.

 

That’s what gets you a nice, balanced, round, nice, beautiful butt like Shakira. So follow these moves if you want a nice, beautiful butt like Shakira.

 

The first move is called a “Crescent Lunge.”

We are going to be focusing on sculpting that butt while we tone and lift. You can use a chair if you are working on your balance.

 

Just lean into the chair, take your right foot back, leave your left foot forward, your right heel comes off the ground, take a deep inhale and you are going to lunge down.

 

Now instead of pulsing, we are going to hold it here for 5 slow counts. You can feel that butt starting to work, both your right glute and your left glute, you are feeling that. Just hold it for one more count.

 

Okay, now instead of just coming up, we are going to come up and lift and we are going to hold this for 5 slow counts. Again, you can feel that we are working both of the glutes; the right and the left butt are firing.

This is going to get you twice the results in half the time. One more deep breath in and then exhale, come right back down.

 

So we are going to do this 5 times. I am going to show you without the chair this time. We are holding for 5 counts. I can already feel my legs are shaking, that means that we are burning fat from inside of the butt muscle.

 

That’s what gives you a nice, beautiful butt like Shakira.

 

One more breath in and then we are going to lunge up really slow and hold it. So you are contracting that butt muscle at the top AND the left butt is squeezing together. Hold for 5 slow counts.

 

Now remember, you can always use the chair because you are working on building up your balance.

 

The key is to keep breathing and you make sure your core is engaged. One more deep breath in, lift your heart, and exhale. Okay, now let’s push it back up. Lift that back leg and hold it.

 

This is going to really sculpt and tighten your butt; you are going to get beautiful curves. You are going to really start to see your butt lift up as it gets nice and firm.

 

Let’s go back down for another deep lunge. Go a little deeper this time. Hold it for 5 breathes.

 

You can always take a break and come back, but if you really want to get maximum results in the least amount of time you want to stick with it.

 

A lot of people pulse and bounce around, but that’s not isolating your butt muscles the way we are isolating them now. One more deep breath in and then exhale, push on up.

 

If you start to feel the shaking, that means it’s working.

One more deep breath in and then slowly come back down. Okay, here is the last one.

 

Now this is where most people would give up, but not Shakira. She keeps it rocking. She keeps going. You can do it too. Come on, you know you want that Shakira booty, don’t you?

 

This is the “real key.” Don’t give up, you’ve just got to push it a little bit further. Take another deep breath in, and then exhale.

 

Sink a little deeper into that lunge. Now push off and lift up while you are sculpting that round, nice tush.

 

Take a few more deep breathes and squeeze the butt at the top. Take one more deep breath and then slowly come back down.

So that was a “Crescent Lunge” with a back-lift.

 

You want to do 5 lunges and holds on the left side as well and that would be 1 round.

 

To make an entire workout you will want to do this 3 times.

Are you looking for ways to lift your saggy butt?

 

If you do, this is a Video HERE for you to lift your saggy butt

 

This is my secret to lift your saggy butt which is to stretch and massage.

This feels really good and it actually elongates the muscle and stimulates circulation inside each of the muscle fibers.

 

You are going to lift your saggy butt as well as to get rid of cellulite.

So here is a great stretch, lie down on your back.

Take a deep inhale, exhale. Bend your right leg then put your left leg on top of it.

 

This is called “Thread the Needle.”

You are going to move your hands between your thighs, take a deep inhale and then exhale, stretch.

Bring that thigh towards your chest, that’s more intense.

 

If you would like to have less intensity, just back off. You can feel the stretch into the glute muscles and into the side of your thighs. Let’s do the other side.

 

You are going to bend the right leg over the left, thread the needle.

Hands go between the thighs, cross your hands and then you decide how intense you want it by pulling the thigh in towards the chest. Take a deep breath and then exhale. Then release.

 

That feels so good and it’s really great for lifting that saggy butt. If you would like a more intense stretch, you can do a “pigeon stretch.”

With pigeon, you are using that same angle to stretch the glute muscle. But this time we are going to be using a body weight, so there is more intensity.

 

You want to make sure you don’t have any knee injuries.

You can even walk down deeper. Slowly walk your hands back, curl your toes up, and stretch that leg out.

This is called Pigeon.

So that is one of my favorite butt stretches, and it’s really good to lift your saggy butt.

 

The next tip is about massaging your butt.

So you can do some self-massage that feels really good. Just lay down and you can beat on the butt. This is going to stimulate circulation and release toxins.

 

It’s going to make sure that you smooth out cellulite.

Just a few little pats!

 

You can double fist it or even do circular massages. Let’s do the other side. I am going to really target into those butt muscles. You can feel them relaxing and releasing.

 

This is going to get rid of all those toxins that are being stored in between your muscle cells and in your fat cells.

 

It’s so important to stretch and to massage so that you keep your muscles nice and flexible while you are working them.
