The Brazil Butt Lift Workout for Women: the Straight Legs Deadlift


For the best results in a Brazil butt lift workout the Sumo Squat should be completed by the Straigth Legs Deadlift as it works the lower part of buttocks, the back of legs and the lower back muscles. It requires a bit more attention than the other so if you're not comfortable with it stick to the Sumo Squat alone as it's the best and safest workout for women interested in raising buttocks and having beautiful legs.

Straight Legs Deadlift as 2nd Best Butt Exercise


Beside the best fitness exercise for your butt, the Sumo Squat, there is a second one which complements the Squat giving you the chance to have greater results in a shorter time and to train your buttocks in a different way, the Straight Legs Deadlift. Since they can be done one after the other it's easy to use them with the Weight Training in Five Minutes a Day routine. When it's legs time just perform a set of Sumo Squats and then follow immediately with one set of Straight Legs Deadlifts, then you can rest for 30 seconds to 1 minute before repeating the sets.

Very important: if you have back problems stick with the Sumo Squat only as it gives almost no stress on your back and it's an almost complete Brazil butt lift workout on its own.

And as usual check with your doctor first and buy a good book on Weightlifting, I always recommend the one of Stuart McRobert since it's focused on safety while doing Weight Lifting.


The Straight Legs Deadlift in a Brazil Butt Lift Workout


This wonderful exercise works greatly your buttocks, plus your lower back and the muscles on the back of your legs. Used in conjunction with the Sumo Squat you work your buttocks, your legs, your lower back and your thighs, that is to say you'll have the best exercise match with two exercises performed twice a week five minutes each time. Isn't simply great? Surely one of the best workouts for women, and for men too.


The Straight Legs Deadlift is pretty easy to do, just keep in mind these simple rules:


  • Always use small weights and increase slowly.


  • Keep always your dumbbells as near as possible to your body.


  • Never bend your back. Never. Always keep your back straight at any given moment.


  • Flexibility will follow and you can always add some stretching if you really need it; but always keep your back straight. If you curve your spine a little weight of some pounds can apply forces of various tens or hundreds of pounds on your vertebrae and that's the best way to ruin your back, sometimes with permanent effects.


  • Keep your shoulders blocked so that you don't curve them during the exercise and look in front of you to keep your back straight.


  • Breath in, hold comfortably your breath while going down, breath out when going up.


  • Even if the exercise is called Straight Legs Deadlift keep your legs (knees) slightly bended as to avoid unneeded stress on your joints.


  • Put your feet more or less shoulder wide and pointed onward, but as usual try to find Your right position. Keep your knees in line with your feet.


  • Move slowly and smoothly and remember the rule that at any given moment you must be able to stop without difficulties, you control your dumbbells and their movement. It has never to be the contrary.


  • Never go beyond the point your upper body is parallel to the ground and never go beyond the point your body is perpendicular to the ground. The Straight Legs Deadlift requires a range of movement of 90°, from the standing position to the bent one. Never overextend your back beyond the point it's straight, never.


Here you are, a simple but great Brazil butt lift workout.



Summary: standing with your legs "straight" but slightly bent, your feet shoulder wide and your dumbbells on your sides bend yourself slowly keeping your back straight and in complete control until your upper body is slightly above being parallel to the ground. Then using your buttocks come back to the standing position. 90° movement.

Conclusion


The Straight Legs Deadlift together with the Sumo Squat makes one of the best lower body workouts for women. Keep in mind that beautiful, well shaped buttocks and legs remains always with you, without regards to your age. Always remember to go slowly and safely, No Pain No Gain is simply Rubbish. Every fitness exercise must be performed in full safety at all times and the best exercise is the safest one which gives you sound results. If you don't feel comfortable with the Straight Legs Deadlift stick to the Sumo Squat and you'll have anyway a great Brazil butt lift workout.

That's one perfect butt in the photo, but the wedgie's gotta hurt. I do believe you will get a lot of traffic on this one hypno! Personally, I've been working on achieving this kind of perfection for years but long ago I hit a plateau. I'm left with love what you've got and flaunt what you love!:)

Hi Michel, thanks for your kind words and appreciation. If you liked the Sumo Squat you'll certainly love the Straight Legs Deadlift. Not that you need too much training given your dance instruction. :)


hypnodude profile image

hypnodude 6 years ago from Italy Author

Green Lotus, I've had to look in the dictionary for wedgie, now I know what it means, and you're probably right. :)

I agree with you that those butts are perfect, but also that once we have done what's in our possibilities we should accept ourselves for what we have. I'm fit, but I've accepted that my body type will never make me a Body Builder. Having said that, given your love for Yoga and similar exercises I guess you're not so far away from them. :) Thanks for your kind comment and have a great day!

Hi Enelle, glad you liked it so much. It will surely be a good tool to use. Your buttocks will love it, together with the rest of your lower body. :)

Thanks to you Sage for your appreciation, I'm happy you liked it. Just be sure to go slowly and safely and the first times, until you learn well the movement, you can do it without weights. The Straight Legs Deadlift works well even with your body weight only, just like the Sumo Squat.

Have a great day!

Timely hub, just in time for summer. With your clear instructions and inspiring pictures, this should be a snap. Well, maybe, not when you consider I'm one of those who love big returns for little efforts. Anyway, it's time for me to do the sumo squat. Rated useful.

Hi wavegirl, glad you liked the Straight Legs Deadlift. Do it with the Sumo Squat and it's a complete workout for buttocks. Probably they'll feel a little sore the first times but this is normal when a new exercise is done. Thanks for appreciating my efforts to show good and safe ways to achieve long lasting results. :)

hypnodude 6 years ago from Italy Author

Maita, thanks for the rating, really appreciated. The soreness with the Sumo Squat should disappear as soon as your butt muscles get trained. But do not exaggerate. :):)

Hi Money, thanks for the thumb up and the digg. Don't worry though, the Sumo Squat is the fundamental one and it's more than enough, the Straight Legs Deadlift is a complementary one to work the whole buttock but in case of back problems it's better to avoid it. Thanks for your appreciation. :)

Hi anglnwu, actually I like big returns with little effort too, that's the way our body is done, and you'll have great results by doing it just a couple of times a week, and together with the Sumo Squat results will be faster and bigger. Just take your time. :)

Thanks for the rating and vote.

Hi Lady_E, glad you liked it and I hope too it will be useful for a lot of women. While there are many exercise for developing beautiful buttocks in my opinion the Straight Legs Deadlift and the Sumo Squat are the best ones, and those which give better results in the shortest time. Thanks for your comment and have a great day! :)

Excellent! I need to practice those exercises. First - I confess to being 78 years old, still very active and (I think) pretty sexy. One thing I started doing quite a few years ago when I noticed my thighs getting a bit too - ugh - loose - was to ALWAYS - ALWAYS make it a habit to lift myself up from any sitting position with my legs! From the dining chair to the couch, to the side of the bed, to the "porcelain throne" - even emerging from the car - I always push myself into a standing position with my leg muscles - "look, ma - no hands!". It's done wonders to improve my legs and maybe my butt a bit.

I also practice balance by standing on one foot - and then the other while just standing doing something boring like brushing teeth or waiting in a checkout line. I don't want to be one of those "I've fallen and I can't get up" folks!

Thanks for some more concentrated exercises. I was working out at the gym for years till my beloved late husband needed my full-time care. Now I do want to resume more structured activity and doing it at home is OK, too.

Hi Nellieanna, thanks for your appreciation, I'm glad you liked the article. Your way of training is very keen and wise, beside a workout using our muscles throughout the day is very intelligent so we can train more and keep our muscles toned. The Straight Legs Deadlift it's a great exercise, but if it's a lot of time that you don't exercise I would begin with the Sumo Squat, without weights, and then move on with the Deadlift later. Just remember that safety comes first. :)

Thanks for another interesting comment. Have a great day!

A provoking part of women's body is the butt. No doubt about it. To keep the available asset in good condition shoould be an aim in life. It is one part which deforms quickly and add shabby look. Hypnodude is doing a good sevice for women folk. Congrats

Thanks "empty", the butt either of women or men is also one of the parts which can be improved easily. The only thing that's needed is to train them, and they pretty soon become better. :)
