You’ve watched with envy, the many female stars who have the perfect posterior you so desperately want. How can they be so lucky? Beauty, millions of pounds to spare, a Hollywood lifestyle and a booty like two ripe peaches placed perfectly in a bowl. So, how did they achieve this butt? Well, it has been suggested that tv reality stars like the Khadashian sisters, singers and actresses Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez, just to name a few, have all gone under the knife and have become victims of the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). “The Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants. Excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttocks”. This procedure costs a staggering GBP£10,000……Wow!!!!

I am an advocate for fitness, and a fan of a plump bum, which I have unashamedly achieved through a rigorous fitness plan. Squats was a key factor in achieving and maintaining my firm posterior, as it not only tightens and lifts the bum, it also defines and tones the legs. Hence, the conveniently named Squat2Fit.
Here are some tips for a more peachy posterior:
Squats – it goes without saying, that if you want a perkier butt, you must incorporate squats in your fitness plan. It’s also important that you allow rest days in between your squat workout so the muscles can repair and grow.
Nutritients – choose foods high in macro-nutritients in your diet. Foods such as eggs, steak, most lean cut meats, quinoa and potatoes are a healthy choice.
Yoga and Pilates – yoga and pilates are known to strengthen and tone the body. Not only is it relaxing, but you will use your butt muscles in many yoga positions.
Add weights to your exercises – if you add 5 or 10 pound weights to your basic exercises, like lunges or squats, you will quickly see results.
Circuit Training – Many of the exercises in a typical circuit training targets the glutes from different angles. Circuit training involves different types of exercise, which means your butt will get a thorough work out.
Oh! Do you want to know another cheeky way to achieve a perfect rear? Angle your bum in photo’s so it appears larger. As they say, “you have to fake it, until you make it”. By angling your bum towards the camera and the rest of your body away, you can mimic the affect of a larger bum.
