Get a Bootylicious Butt for Jeans Season

I love, LOVE, LOOOOOVE jeans. I’d wear them every single day if I could. Jean shorts, boot cut jeans, wide leg jeans, skinny jeans –  you name it, I love JEANS! —BUTTTTTT, (pun intended) no matter what brand is hot, it’s a big “NOT!” if my butt looks bad in them.

Redbook recently did a story on the Best Jeans for Your Butt. Don’t get excited – they didn’t give you a great list of cool brands to choose from, but just gave some pointers on what to look for to “mask” your flaws. But why try to hide what we can fix?

In 15 Minute Fashion’s Best Jeans for Fall 2011 article, skinny jeans and jeggings (leggings that look like jeans) show up in the top pics. I have news for you, if you don’t like your butt – you are NOT going to have a lot of options this year because skintight jeans are still dominating the clothing stores.

If your butt was already saggy or mushy, skinny jeans will just flatten and spread it out more. So, instead of trying so hard to get a shapely pair of jeans, let’s work hard to get a shapely butt!

Have you ever seen a flat bottom on a kid? NO! They have perky firm bottoms because they are constantly active. As we age, and sit around on the computer all day, we lose muscle – including our butt muscles. Similar to a deflated balloon, we just need to re-inflate the glutes by exercising those muscles.

Steve Pfiester demonstrates his top 3 butt-lifting exercises that will perk up, and firm up, your derriere. pFit Tip: Do 3-4 sets of 20 of each exercise 2-3 times a week.

    I am 22 and I recently noticed I’ve acquired cellulite on my butt. I used to be very, very active but I’m in university now, I just don’t have time. Do you have any tips for what to eat and please, please tell me it can fully be cured!!!

    1. Bonnie Pfiester

      Yes, it sounds like you are losing muscle so I’d try to boost your protein – but also try to reduce calories from fat and carbs. If you don’t have a a lot of time, here’s a great 30-minute butt and leg workout you can do at home! http://www.fitstudio.com/workouts/bcx-lower-body-express If you like it, you can do the whole BCx Express workout here: http://www.fitstudio.com/programs/bcx-express It’s FREE and you can practically do it anywhere – in only 30 minutes :) I think it could make a HUGE difference!!

    this is the best butt exercise that I can say I truly like and plan on going then every time at gym, everything else I do and my butt is still musshy );

      Yay!! So glad!! Do these with walking lunges (10-15lb dumbbells) and pretty heavy squats! That should do it! :)

    I would like to see more diet tips please. My intensity is in my workouts, but you’re right! If you don’t nail the diet down, you’re not going to get anywhere. I need help getting that nailed down. I’m not going to ever give up and stop trying. I just wish I would get results from my efforts.

    Sooo….long story short. More diet tips please! :-D
