Don't be scared you won't lose that derriere. Online, socially, media, music, movies, everywhere you turn... is Booty talk. Booty Love. "Look at my booty; did you see her booty?" Booty Self Hate. "My booty is too big; too small; too this; too that." We are a booty obsessed nation! But the consensus seems to be that the ladies are too scared to do anything more then Zumba. Hey I am not knocking it, your heart loves you for the cardio! But ladies strength training your lower body is key! The projections from the media that men put on woman do not help either. I hear "I don't want someone too skinny; too fat" and even "Just don't lose that ass" when woman discuss diet and exercise in the presence of a man.
Reality check Ladies & Gentlemen. This is a PSA
Stop with the unrealistic expectations! First of all not everyone is shaped the same. But whatever god given proportions you have ( this is the natural distribution of weight on your body ) will not go away with weight loss or gain. What lower body workouts will do for you however is round out the shape. It will smooth out the cellulite. It can add inches to hips, glutes and thighs. Yes it can ADD to your shape. Some may people will notice results quick, others it may take longer. Some butts are big. Some are wide. Some are round. Some are flat. Some people have heart shaped hineys. Some are even squared. Butt....
It Is FACT that our bodies are made to move. FACT that no one ever feels bad when they look at themselves in the mirror and see a tone physique. FACT that the more muscle in your body the higher your resting metabolic rate is. As in you burn MORE calories even sleeping then even a slim person who does not strength train. FACT that a woman holds the majority of that muscle in her lower half. And it is FACT that if you start with even just simple squats, You will be on your way to Booty Self Love.
Ladies love the shape you were born with. Work with that. Embrace it. Be good to your temple, you only have one.
