Why a great BUM is Hollywood's most sought-after red-carpet accessory
You know all those beautifully-rounded, gorgeously-perky celebrity behinds on last night's Oscars red-carpet? Yeah, they're probably FAKE.
However, that's not to say that folk are trying to achieve a rear-end of Kardashian-proportions. Yup, away from the fillers, lifts, and fat transfers, butt pads are doing wondrous things during awards season.
Indeed, actress Kristen Bell recently admitted that she had a little help in the rump department at this year's Golden Globes.
So if you feel like your bottom is in need a boost - here are Her's top five tips...
- Eat all the food: there is NO point in squatting until the cows come home without fuelling your body. And carbs are our friends if we want to grow those glutes
- Correct the imbalance: most of us spend all day sitting which causes the glute muscles to weaken. A nice glute bridge incorporated into your everyday workout will help take the pressure off our quads and hamstrings. You can do this at home while watching TV, easy peasy
- Goblet squats: add some weight to good, old-fashioned squats. A kettlebell or dumbbell works great with goblet squats, lower weight and higher repetitions work best here and consistency is key; you can't grow a bum overnight
- Curtsey squat: it targets the outer part of the thigh (or saddlebag area) as well as the glutes. Imagine you're meeting Michael Dee or Queen Bey, get nice and low in that curtsey
- Relax: sometimes its just genetics. The butt is having a serious moment so embrace the curves and leave the pads at home
