How To Firm Up Your Buttocks

Updated on December 4, 2012

Exercise Techniques that Help To Firm Up A Drooping Butt

In today's world there are many people that sit a lot of the time. If you're one of them, then you're probably not stimulating the muscles in your legs and butt area as much as you ought to. Also if you've had massive weight loss, you may find that your buttocks, thighs, tummy and legs are hanging and sagging. But what can you do about it?

Exactly how to firm up drooping buttocks is a question that a lot of people ask. Some methods are not recommended, but each person has their own preference and are unique in every way - what we know is that regular exercise is a proven method of toning the body into good, healthy shape. You decide what's right and suitable for you.

Exercising is not a quick fix, you have to work at it regularly - but over time exercising and stimulating the various muscle groups, will help to give you a firmer set of buttocks. Some people think getting firm buttocks can only be done by doing squats or spending time on a stair climber or butt blaster, but there are other methods you can use.

The following exercises are not only used to burn calories, but can also help you tone up your buttocks, buns, butt, bottom, bum, behind, posterior, derrière or whatever term you prefer. In this exercise we'll use the term buttocks for clarity and remember - you don't need to go to a gym to do these exercises.

Just Doing Cardio Won't Do

If you think that just doing cardio is going to help tone, firm or tighten your butt, you might want to think again.

Diet is important

Think about your diet. Drink plenty of water during the day and drop the sugar filled foods, even those that are sugar free as they're often filled with some kind of sugar substitute. Try to eat smaller meals but eat more frequently during the day. Fibers are important to include in your diet, if you don't get enough then take supplement to make up the difference.

Exercises to get your butt firm and toned

Adding these exercises to your fitness program will help a great deal:

  • Try doing 10 to 12 reps per leg of bench step ups
  • Alternating lungs also 10 to 12 reps per legs too
  • Then go on to do lateral lungs too - 10 to 12 reps per leg
  • Do hamstring curls with a stability ball go from 12 to 16 reps

Try to challenge yourself. If you can't do all of the repetitions in one go, no problem. Gradually build up to the full number of reps after several sessions. When you get up to the full number of reps do these exercises for about four weeks and then look at those jeans, dress or skirt and see how well they fit now.
