5 Reasons Why Your Butt Isn’t Shaping No Matter How Much You Work Out

This is absolutely a common problem for many women.

If you are exercising on a regular basis, and still not seeing the wanted results, then probably you’re making some mistakes.

Here are some of the mistakes women make when it comes sculpting and tightening of their butt:


You are missing the mind-butt connection

It is really important to activate your glutes the right way. You should use your glutes as much in everyday life.  Try squeezing your glutes similarly anytime in the day when you’re standing, like while you’re doing the dishes. Also, during workout it is very important to establish that mind-body connection to increase the nervous system’s ability to contract the glute, so you’ll use them more.

You are not working your muscles to fatigue

Remember, doing 30 reps using light weights isn’t nearly as effective at sculpting muscles as lifting heavier weights for fewer reps. Trainers recommend 8 to 10 repetitions for four to five sets, with gradually increasing the weight throughout until you reach muscle fatigue by the end of the exercise.

You neglect your legs

To get better butt shape you must work out your hamstrings and quads. Trainers recommend weighted squats to work the quads and hamstrings; any variation on deadlifts to work the hamstrings; and quick, powerful plyometric movements such as jump squats, jump lunges and box jumps.

Your diet needs help

If you are not eating healthy, you won’t get the desired results. This means not consuming too many calories and processed foods. Eat more protein, which is especially important for muscle repair. The average woman should eat about one gram of protein per kilogram of body weight every day. One serving of lean protein (chicken, beef, eggs, tofu, or Greek yogurt) at each meal plus a protein shake within an hour of finishing your workouts will do the trick.

You exercise too much

Too much exercising not always means better results. Remember, to get a good body is to run yourself into ground with exercise.Also, it is very important to keep your workouts interesting and to try different exercises.
