If you follow my Nutritionist and Trainer, Jessica Morris Health, on instagram, you’ll know she is the queen of booty-licious workouts. Here she shares her Top 3 Booty-Full Tips for Strong and Sexy Glutes to get us all looking our booty best in 2016!
1. Weight is your friend!
If you’re looking to build a set of round, tight glutes, you’ll need load. No booty was built on air! While body-weight exercises are useful, if you want to build muscle, you will need added weight and/or resistance. Personally, I like using free-weights, bands or a squat rack to fire my glutes with added weight. Like any exercise, be sure to build up your load gradually, and ensure your form is on point! Hire a trainer to help you if you’re new to working out, or feel like your form could be better.
2. Consistency is key
It would be great if we could workout once and have our dream body. Unfortunately life doesn’t work like that…to get the results you want, you need to be consistent. I always recommend clients to workout 3-4 days a week (to begin) and gradually add onto that. There is no excuse to miss a workout. Make it a priority in your day, just like food and water.
3. Nutritional gains
You can do all the squats in the world, but if you’re not getting the right macro and micro nutrients in your diet (specifically protein), then your efforts will not be utilized to their best ability. 70% of how you look is based on what you eat, while 30% is how you move. Keep this in mind next time you are grocery shopping or preparing a meal. If you struggle with nutrition, ask a Nutritionist to help guide you in reaching your goals.
