i would have thought squats down to the heels would firm up the buttocks
i did them to the floor for the first time the other day (after reading a article on this site), i felt it hitting them
i want to trim a bit of weight off around my backside, its still a lil flabby, my upper body is pretty ripped
what exercises and what reps do ppl suggest for this?
i was thinking of a few light squat and deadlift supersets at the end of my chest/bi and back/tri workouts, aiming for about 20 reps of squats followed by 10-15 of deads. Should help me firm that area up a lil
I don't know the name in english, but the exercise where you sit down and push outwards with your legs(out to your sides, not to the front like in the standard lift) to work the adductor muscles (sp?) is great for your ass. I "Feel the burn in my ass!". Er...
like a previous post on this page said, the best exercise to tighten and strengthen ass is the reverse leg scissors machine--the one where you spread your legs outward in a pushing outward manner.
Many assume this machine is for women, but the adductors are an important body part. While using this machine, don't exercise like a woman (only 30-50 pounds and 20-30 reps), instead use the machine like a man. Try 3 sets of 10-12 at about 170-190lbs.
You will think you are working out other parts of your legs than your ass while using it, but when you get out and walk around you feel an intense soreness in both butt cheek muscles.
Of course one should also be doing squats and hamstring curls too since they are large muscles.
Yep deep squats work well but what works better for me is squezzing my butt at the top of a straight legged deadlift. Give it a try!
Cow Pimp - If you don't train your legs you're a dumbfuck. I'm not going to elaborate on why. If it isn't obvious to you, then you deserve the marginal results that you get and hideously unbalanced/injury prone physique that you will build.
