How to Do a Squat For a Round Butt

How to Do a Squat For a Round Butt

Ever tweaked a muscle when working out?  When it comes to any kind of exercise  correct posture and  proper form is essential. Ignoring this could easily lead to injury. When squatting never let your knees move past your toes. You can avoid this mistake  by pushing your booty out as if you’re going to sit in the chair. Exhale on the way down, inhale on the way up. Focus on squeezing your behind when you come up. Remember that with proper form, you can help improve your performance and decrease your risk of injuries.

Men’s Fintess advice: Doing air squats with a mini band around your thighs is a good way to train proper technique.

Happy Sunday, dear Reader and thank you for stopping by!

Ladies: Weights Are Your Friends

Ladies: Weights Are Your Friends

“…While aerobic exercise burns calories during the workout, muscle-building activities such as weight training can create caloric expenditure long after the workout is over.  One of the main reasons why is repair.  Working with weights breaks down muscle tissue and, naturally, energy (calories) is required to repair the tissue.  Also, larger bodies and those with more muscle tissue burn more calories both at rest and during exercise. Five lbs of muscle will look leaner and more contoured on the body than five lbs of fat.” – Liz DiAlto (greatist.com)

My dear Ladies, when in doubt workout and remember that lifting weights won’t make you bulky!

Stop Waiting – Get Moving

Stop Waiting - Get Moving

“Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here.” ― Donald Trump

Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see results right away. Getting fit takes time! Get outdoors, breath some fresh air and work up a sweat.

Fun Fitness

For me fitness is fun! It’s a wonderful way to do something for yourself, your health and overall well-being. That’s why I’m a firm believer that getting fit should not be painful or boring – it should be fun! So the best way to embrace healthy lifestyle changes is to find something you enjoy doing. If you enjoy physical activity, you will probably do it more often! Having fun is the key to keeping exercise a part of your life. Being a fit person has lots of benefits. You will feel good and comfortable in your own skin, you will be healthier, less stressed, more relaxed and you will sure have more energy and will power.

With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” – Mark Victor Hansen
