Leg Workout for a Nice Butt
Leg Workout for a Nice Butt
Men and women alike appreciate a nice firm butt. Most of us aren’t happy with our own. They are too small, too wide, too plump, and too flabby. If you want to make a positive change on your butt cardio workouts, weight training accompanied with a proper diet will make all the difference. Check to see what the best cardio and strength training exercises for strengthening and targeting your rear with a personal trainer. I like to use the leg press to get the looks I want in my blue jeans and white T-shirt
This exercise is very similar to bench press. The further out you place your hands the more engaged your chest and shoulders become. The closer in you put them, the more triceps you use. The closer your feet are the more of your quads you will hit, and further apart will hit hamstrings.
Leg Press Exercise
How to Leg press
Muscles worked: hamstrings of the thigh, quadriceps and gluteus (butt).
Comfortably position yourself on the machine with your back and head against the padded support.
Place your feet on the foot plate hip width apart, and keep your heels flat. The legs will form an angle of about ninety degrees at the knees
Your knees will be in line with the feet and not bow inward or outward.
Do not raise your butt for support, that it what we are targeting and if it is, and your legs are at too severe an angle, fine-tune the seat back until you are in the correct position.
Tension your abs and push the platform away from you with your heels this will extend your knees and hips and pushing your back into the padding.
Always keep your heels on the platform and do not try to do calf raises by pointing your toes out, you will risk injuring yourself.
Keep your head and back in good posture throughout the entire motion.
Do not lock out your knees at the end of the extension.
Lower the platform to your starting position by allowing your knees to bend under control while keeping your heels flat
Repeat the exercise.
I recommend starting with a modest weight and progress as it suits your training and requirements. Try three sets of ten leg presses.Not only will this work out your legs but lower portion of the motion firms your gluteus aka your new butt
Leg Press Home Gym
The differences involving a home gym and commercial units
are very apparent before you even start using it. Ranging from the quality of build
to how effortlessly the sled moves the commercial units.
Your best option is to pick a price point at which you are willing to meet and see what is available. Always use the equipment, by sitting on it in a store and running the sled up and down as this will give you and idea of how it will feel.
My preference is that if I could not afford a suitable unit I would not purchase one at all. A leg press is a considerable investment for your home gym so take your time and choose intelligently.
Working Your Legs With Rowing Machines
Rowing machines can help you
get that tight jean butt as well.
If you're already rower, they are very helpful for perfecting form, and an accurate judge of what time you would complete certain distances on the water if indeed out on the water rowing.
For everyone else, it is good for cardio exercise. This works out your legs and glutes. The common misconception is it is more for upper body because of the way you pull the chain. When used properly, the slide will be moved with the force of the legs, and when you are at the end of the motion you should really feel it in your legs.
I can have Fruits on a diet right?
While watching your weight you may consider fruits and end up eating a lot of them. Keep in mind that fruits do contain a substantial portion of fructose, but their benefits are also numerous. All things considered, the benefits outweigh the costs of fruit. That's not to imply that you can eat fruit all day everyday. Most normal portions of fruit only have roughly 15 grams of carbohydrates. Not to mention fiber, important vitamins, phytonutrients and a bunch of other benefits.
The Three (Ass)pects to a Great Butt
Very simple yet hard to achieve, 1) cardio exercise from perhaps a rowing machine 2) watching your weight and drinking water and lastly strength training on exercise equipment like a leg press and don't forget to consider chest exercise equipment
Keeping that in mind your next worry will be the pinching that may occur
