Squat to get that butt?

My opinion regarding REAL and FAKE…

So the thing to have these days are a big butt, right? It is all over the media. The one day women does not even have a bump, the next day, well, we all know, they’ve got massive butts.

IT IS NOT REAL!! IT IS FAKE!!

I know some woman really work hard in the gym and they have well deserved butts, but what we see in the media, the things that “all woman want”, they are not always worked for, they are bought!! Those are not things that we shoud set as our goals.

Sweat, sometimes tears, working hard towards your goals – these are the things MONEY can not buy!! Surely getting a big butt this way is much more rewarding?

I keep saying this because this is something that is such a big problem in my opinion.

People look at ‘rolmodels’ and decide what is the perfect body, what they would like to look like. But most times, the rolmodels they choose is people that visit the plastic surgeon on a weekly basis. That is not someone to look up to?? Yes, it looks amazing, but it is bought!!! Isn’t a rolmodel suppose to be someone that works hard to get to where they ultimately want to be? That shows you that hard work pays off?

I don’t know, I can be wrong. I just feel many people have no idea what the difference is between REAL and FAKE!!

Eversince I started this journey I realised how HARD it is to work on yourself (your body) and then you get people that goes for surgery to get the bodies they want, isn’t that cheating yourself?

Choosing the easy way out?

I don’t know…

I don’t know if maybe I had the money I would also do all kinds of surgery’s, I mean it is probably easier?

Then I look at all these personal trainers and I realise –

To work for the body you want is SO much sexier than doing it the easy way.

My story to getting thΓ t butt…

In school I used to play netball so our team had a personal trainer. Everyday we had a session, of HARD HARD work!!

Squats being a very important excersice, we almost did them everyday. Why?

Squats (Wikipedia):

In strength training and fitness, the squat is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs, hips and buttocks, quadriceps femoris muscle (vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius and rectus femoris), hamstrings, as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs as well as developing core strength. Isometrically, the lower back, the upper back, the abdominals, the trunk muscles, the costal muscles, and the shoulders and arms are all essential to the exercise and thus are trained when squatting with the proper form.

Playing netball you need to have a good posture, you need to have strong legs to prevent injuries. Landing with the pressure on your knees the whole time can cause serious knee injuries. Doing squats strenghten your legs and important, the muscles that are protecting your knees.

That is what I learned doing squats, good posture. Your posture needs to be perfect for squats to do their job. Netball was the reason I used to do squats.

What is my reason now?

It is a wonderful excersice that makes me feel SO good!! It is good for various reasons – strong legs, a nice round butt, shaped hamstrings.

Because I love doing squats I set up a personal squat challenge for 1 month. This is for myself, I don’t have to start with 10 squats because I can do more.

I want to work to have nice legs, I want to work to have a flat stomach and I want to work to get that butt.

I still do my stomach excersice and dumbells, I just feel like picking up with the squats – it is something I enjoy and that makes me feel good. I know with squating you need cardio, to loose the fat around the leg muscle.

So before I do my daily challenge I do skipping for atleast 10 minutes. I only started this on Monday – skipping and squats, I like that combination, it has always worked for me and I love the pain I feel after doing squats, it feels like my legs are pure muscle. LoL! πŸ˜€

Lets see how it goes, I still have 10 months to reach my goal, I am positive I will get there.

  1. Those squat challenges work super good!! I’ve had clients do those before and the numbers go up quickly!

    And after doing the squat challenge (very rewarding) you do the same type of challenge with modified push-up’s, step-up’s, lunges, walking distance, etc.

    But squats are the best place to start, burning more calories than most exercise from so many large muscle groups being worked! Be sure to give yourself at least one day of rest each week for these challenges too!
