Getting A Defined Butt | Portland Oregon Personal Trainer| Gluteus Muscles

Defining the butt muscle is not as easy as one thinks! Yes, it is going to require some work, but it is possible. The one thing that you have to remember is that the movement that flexes this specific region is called extension, or hip extensions. You may have seen that machine at the gym where the person is sort of kneeling into this machine and they are pushing their leg back and in the air. Well, that specific motion is called hip extension and that flexes or works the butt muscles. In addition to having a great fitness routine, your food and cardio need to be in sync too. Because if you are just working those lower leg muscles and not reducing the fat in your body, your butt will get bigger. You want the buttocks to be nicely shaped, so that should be your overall goal. I want you to look at your existing fitness program and see how it is working for you. Also, pay attention to what exercises you are focusing on, because if you are doing the same thing every day, that can be a problem. I always tell most individuals that before they embark on a crazy workout program to talk to a local fitness professional or if you are in the Northwest, a Portland Oregon personal trainer in your area. Below is also a list of exercises you can do if you want to workout with a buddy: 

1. Lunges

3. Single Leg Squats, 
4. Step Ups with Hip Extension
