Growing Your Peach
The following poses strengthen the legs, glutes and core. They are also effective ways of developing a firm, round and bigger butt if you can’t squat due to knee injuries. Strike the following poses for flattering a bigger pair of glutes:
This pose is a very effective way of toning the curves all over the body especially the glutes. It also gives the whole front of the torso a very relaxing stretch. This pose can be a little challenging but not impossible with regular practice.
To do the pose: Stand on your knees. Remember to keep them hip-width apart. Take an inhalation as you suck your belly in and place your hands just above your butt. As you exhale, slowly bend back while reaching your hands to your feet. Stay in this pose for 3-5 breaths and gently stand back up to release.
This yoga pose challenges balance while improving the legs’ strength and engaging the gluteus muscles. It also helps tone the arms, the lower back, and the abdominal region to give more emphasis to your glutes. This yoga posture also gives the front of the body a good stretch so it’s very beneficial to your body.
To do the pose: Begin by standing with your feet together. Lift your right hand and extend it in front of you as you inhale. Then, lift your left leg back and bend it by the knees. Take hold of your left foot with your left hand and hold the pose for 5-10 breaths. Repeat the same mechanics on the other side.
This posture directly stimulates glute muscle engagement as the main source of balance along with core strength. It also efficiently improves arm, shoulder and leg strength.
To do the pose: Start in a standing position. Inhale as you lengthen your spine and lift your arms up to the sky. As you breathe out, slowly bend forward while raising your right leg, forming a T position. Hold the pose for 5-10 breaths and then repeat the same process on the other leg.
This pose strengthens the glutes, core, and legs, toning the whole body for a sexier look. Please refrain from doing this pose if you have recently suffered from a neck and back injury.
To do the pose: Lie on your stomach and place your hands next to your hips with the palms facing the ground. After that, lift your chest off the floor and raise your legs together as much as you can. Remember to keep your gaze forward and stay in this pose for 3-5 breaths.
