A Change In Scenery III: Exercise cont. and Off Question

Recommended Posts

CharlotteVictoria

Hello, it's me again. I was just doing my workout routine last night when two questions had found it's way into my head, and i'd like to share them with you and get your thoughts on it as well. If that's not too much to ask. 

I. In addition to my road of getting a big butt, you may recall that i wanted a tiny waist and slim tummy. So i got to wondering, does anyone know of any good exercises that i should throw into my normal routine to help achieve this?

The off question is this:

II. As i am trying to achieve a big booty, i am aware that i will have to change out the jeans/shorts/leggings i already own (either my butt is bursting out of them or i can't get them past my thighs/butt), and purchase new ones.So my question becomes: Are there any places i can get pairs that really accentuate my butt/thighs but at an affordable price? it's well known that the average person doesn't exactly have $60-$100 just waiting to be spent. Bills, Food, Gas, etc. are a necessity you see.


I appreciate any comments, questions, and/or concerns you may post. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) some responses ^_^!!



Charlotte out ❤️

I don't know about getting a bigger back side, but to get a trim midriff watch your diet and exercise, setups, crunchers, etc.  They will tighten things up.

 

As to clothing, you might try googling what you want and see what comes up.

 

Cheers, Jani

Planks of the various iterations are great for core and tend to be better for the low back than sit-ups or crunches. Superman or Supergirl 😉 holds are good too. Diet is by far the most important for the definition. This will be tough to do if you’re also trying to build out your behind, as you’ll probably want a little fat back there to soften it. You can’t target specific areas for fat loss or distribution, just muscle growth.  Good luck, mind your form and enjoy the post exercise highs.

For a bigger butt try doing things like squats, lunges, bridges... or variations of those like burpees.

Alternatively, try riding a bike up big hills.  Its another way to work those glutes.

please forgive the near month late reply, things have been hectic Dx!

I've recently begun trying to add crunches at the end of my routine (2 sets of 30 twist crunches and normal crunches) and my lord my stomach gets so sore afterwards Dx! You're probably right about the google thing :o

In addition what i stated above about crunches, i've added planking too! I can currently hold a plank for 40 seconds (with struggle of course XD)! Is there a target time i should be holding it to get results or should i just keep adding them in tandem with crunches? When it comes to diet..i have a hard time even trying to make one, what with the little money i have and my lack of eating in general (i seriously hardly eat. I'm not underweight or anything by any means. I just dont' eat as often as i know i should). Ah, yes..the ever so difficult task of adding some fat to said booty, i'll have to probably do some research about where fat is normally stored for someone like me. Either that or get to a physician asap before trying to gain some fat on my booty xD!

I appreciate the hug, so i shall give one in return *bigger hug*

Oh trust me, i do squats. I even try to do them on my off workout days (which is hard considering my work schedule. I don't want to burn all of my energy or be ridiculously sore before work. Which is also hard trying to do so after work because i'm ridiculously sore anyway DX)! Lunges i still have a hard time trying to do, but i hear they help immensely!! As for bridges, i'll have to look that up, as i'm sure i do a variation of it. when it comes to burpees..i've not heard of those, so i'll need to look that up as well! Biking up hills huh...? Guess i should invest in a bike asap XD!

I thought I was doing myself a favor by holding a plank for up to 90 seconds.  My physical therapist, who's been terrific helping getting me back to full strength, informed me that more reps of shorter durations are more beneficial, so I've been doing 4 plank repetitions, each 30 seconds, as part of my routine.

Biking up hills

If you have access to a treadmill, many of them allow you to tilt them upward so that you're working uphill.  Or, of course, an exercise bike can be adjusted on the go so that you're pedaling with more force, simulating going uphill.

I do bridges regularly each workout, 20 per set.  Enter "bridges exercise" in Google Images for plenty of visual examples.  Here's the instructions I follow for those:  
Begin by lying with knees bent and both feet placed on the floor with arms at your sides.  Raise your hips off the surface by squeezing your gluteal muscles.  Bring the hips up to where they are in line between the knees and shoulders.  Repeat as directed. 

 

For "extra credit," I now do my bridges sets while wearing a resistance band (again, entering "bridges exercise with resistance band" in Google Images will show examples of that).

 

Sounds like you're dedicated to your exercise!  Congratulations, and best wishes!

      Whatever Shampoo people use, Try not to over shampoo. Shampoo can and will strip the nutrients and oils from your hair if it is overused. Use Conditioner if you do not have dirty hair, and leave in some conditioner to help the hair stay moisturized and healthy. If you feel your hair needs a wash, then just use conditioner.

      Wake me if there is a good half time show at the "super" bowl.  I was a soccer player and never was all that interested in football.   How about the US women's soccer team.....awesome!

      I agree, cause ive seen two teams I enjoy watching tank. The Washington Redskins, and the Carolina Panthers. I also used to watch my former home team, Chargers, tank every year.

      She is one person who stands up to the current president and it appears he is aware of it, hence how he talks about her.  She would be a tough candidate I believe.

      I recently had a bone scan as well and all is well.  My doctor put me on Vitamin D a year ago.  I'm trying to be pro-active with my heath so I'm not going down without a fight!

      That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.   Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁   Kymmie

      When i first moved to Bonnie Scotland. I took me ages to get use to being called "Pal" Where i came from it was a very male oreintated acknowledgement. But here all genders it can be associated with the term.  I was right upset for a while being called "pal" as i was thinking i was being outed everywhere. A very strange phemominan for me as it just doesnt happen. Well not for at least six years and then i was just finding my feet so to speak until i quizzed my partner about it who is native. I didnt feel so bad then.   Also "Hen" is used  between woman but men use it a lot when addressing a Female but not knowing there name. Isnt it funny how little regional things can be so diffrent?   A bit like how you would call someone darling down south if your a man talking to a woman in passing by  "Thanks darling" They say "Thanks Pal" or "Thanks Hen"   They do not really use sweetie. At least i have never heard it. Maybe im  just not sweet enough? 😉         Wow that is old school.  I have not seen one of those in years. I use to have the attachment if you had points but even they went out of use a few years ago.   Just a plastic one now for me im afraid.

      She's the senior senator from my state, and I've heard her speak. She's a breath of fresh, sincere, air.  Her primary passions are economic justice (she spearheaded getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established, which has been greatly curtailed under the Trump administration, sadly).  However, she was also a firm supporter of our statewide ballot initiative for transgender rights last year, which was successful.   I have no doubts about her support for trans rights on the federal level.  The question will be, how receptive will the U.S, Senate be to any Democratic president on any issue if it retains a Republican majority.   Fingers crossed,   Astrid
