How to have firm buttocks? – 10 exercises
What determines the shape of the ass?
If you think your view from the back needs improvement, proper fitness exercises can help you. You can have perfect buttocks and look great in jeans. Ready to take the challenge?
The shape of your ass depends on the condition of the gluteus muscles and the muscles underneath them (that is, the gluteal muscles), as well as on the adipose tissue that covers them. Walking, running, climbing and any other activity can strengthen them. Strength training is designed to strengthen and increase gluteal muscles.
Buttocks uneven. Not everyone can have a perfectly rounded bottom in the shape of an appetizing apple. If you have buttocks in the shape of a heart, a pear or a bubble, then the training will most likely highlight and emphasize their contours.
