Getting my booty back

Isn’t it funny how you really don’t appreciate something until it’s gone? Maybe funny isn’t the word for it but we are all probably guilty of it in one way or another. I’m not trying to toot my own horn here, but I used to have a great butt. I think I’m allowed to say that since it’s no longer true. In college, two of my sorority sisters used to call me “horses ass”. This was partly because I used to walk around the house in a thong (sorry Mom) but mostly because I had a nice round butt. I never took offense to the comment. I liked my butt and I thought that it was something that would always stay with me. Fast forward about 10 years and here I am still exercising but with a flat butt. I’m bummed. Two days ago my mother-in-law even told me that my butt is gone. I’ve decided that it’s time to stop talking about it and start doing something about it. I’m making this public mostly to hold my self accountable but also because I know I’m not the only woman out there with a flat rear end. My plan is to do the following two workouts two days a week for 4-6 weeks. (Longer than 6 weeks and your body starts to adapt and the same exercises become less effective). I’ll check in around that time and give a new workout regime to either continue to build or to maintain. (Depending on how successful I am.) Okay, here goes:

 

Booty-licious workout 1:

25 jump squats

10 straight leg dead lifts

25 weighted squats

10/side fire hydrant in & outs

25 weighted lunges

10/side single leg get ups

Repeat 4 x’s

 

You can see a demo of these exercises on YouTube

 

Booty-licious workout 2:

10 regular squats

25 jumping lunges

10 weighted sumo squats

25 jump squats

10  max weight regular squats

25 squat in & outs

Repeat 4 x’s

These workouts aren’t meant to take a long time. I’ll most likely do them on a day that I also swim. Try to do each exercise back to back with minimal rest. After you complete all 6 exercises, rest 1-2 minutes and then repeat. If you are new to exercising I would not recommend doing this program. You can; however, modify it by doing regular squats and/or lunges without the weight.

 

Wish me luck! I hope to report in 4-6 weeks that my back side is back.
