In today's society, we are pretty obsessed with the booty! One of the things people ask is me how I've lost so much weight but still maintained my butt. Also, I am frequently told "I want to lose weight in my stomach but I want to keep my butt." Well... I hate to break it to y'all... you can't target your weight loss (stomach versus butt), but you can keep and/or build your butt by some pretty simple exercises.
The Cardio Booty:
My booty pictured here was the first phase of my butt when I lost my first 75lbs. As you can see, its considerably smaller (flatter) than my original butt. This booty was a product of A LOT of cardio (12-14 hours a week) and little to no strength training. My weight was about 135lbs.
The Fitness Competition Booty:
This is the second phase of my booty. This booty was created by a little less cardio and 5-6 days of strength training. I focused specifically on exercises that targeted my booty at least twice a week. Interestingly enough, my weight was only 118lbs but clearly, my booty was a lot larger and more defined the The Cardio Booty!
After the Show Booty:
This booty is a product of increased calories and a balance of cardio and lifting heavy. Its also a product up gaining back some GOOD fat after my fitness competition. It's very important that after you finish a fitness competition that you put on some good fat to get your levels back on track after being so depleted for so long.
The Now Booty:
The Now Booty is a combination of a balance between cardio and weight training. I typically target my booty and hamstrings 2 days a week. I still typically lift heavy weights to keep my lower body shapely.
