The likes of J-Lo, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Serena Williams and Nicki Minaj have all helped to put ‘big booties’ on the map, with women world-wide going crazy for bigger bums; after all, every girl wants to be ‘bootylicious’ right?
Unfortunately the average woman quits the challenge half way through; thankfully Pendle Leisure Trust has created an alternative routine incorporating 5 different variations of squat.
(For seriously toned bums repeat each variation 10 times before moving onto the next, complete 3 rounds, 3 times a week)
Start in the traditional squat position with your feet hip-width apart, toes pointing forward, neck straight, and abs tight. Hold your arms out in front of you and bend your knees squatting until your thighs are in line with your knees, return to standing and repeat.
Keep your legs wide apart, move your right foot behind your left leg, as far past your left foot as is comfortable. Using a ‘curtsy’ motion, squat down, keeping your weight in the front leg; return to standing and alternate between the different legs.
Keep your legs wide apart, toes pointed slightly outwards, and push your hips back. Bend your knees and squat until your thighs are in line with your knees, return to standing and repeat.
Jump up tall and straight, bend your knees and land the squat, making sure you sit low in the squat before jumping up tall once again.
Add a weighted barbell across your shoulders, taking care to not put it on your neck. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, bend your knees and squat down, return to standing and repeat.
