I'm losing weight and begin to notice my butt is getting flat. How do I save it?


Quote  |  Reply

I've been doing great with losing weight, lost 12lbs so far. There is 1 part of my body that I am happy with before wanting to lose weight and that is my butt. I begin to notice and so has others that as I'm losing weight the shape of my butt is not like how it use to be. I want to tone my butt but not lose it. So how do I continue to lose weight and to also keep the shape of my butt and even improve it. It runs in my family that many females their butt is not their best assets, they simply have a very flat one, I suppose.

Men and women in pretty much both sides of my family have little to no butt, I have to admit it makes me kinda sad but my butt had only ever gotten compliments from guys. But I don't think guys into big round butts would even give me a glance but I do have the chest so not complete loss.

Squats, start out with body weight and then add dumbells or a barbell, whatever you can handle, continue to add weight.  Squat two to three days a week.  Use proper form (very important).  Look at youtube for examples of good form.

^This. I do lunges and squats. Using heavier weights now.

Glad some people are with me on not wanting a "pancake butt"

According to Female Body Breakthrough one of the best exercises to build the booty is the Bulgarian split squat  along with aforementioned squats.  Step ups are also good

Congrats on the weight loss!

Part of how you look is genetic.. but here's another vote for squats and lunges! Do them with dumbbells or bar weights and you will get results faster! Doing this has perked up my rear and given it a better shape.

Same is happening here. But I've already resolved that if having a flatter stomach and smaller waistline means a flatter behind, so be it.

But it doesn't have to be- you can lift the rear when you lift the weights

How has nobody said deadlifts yet?

 

Deadlifts.

I went from hardly any butt to a pretty nice butt using Brazil Butt Lift. I had never had any compliments until about 2 months in and then I got a swarm of them. It really does make a different and the work outs are pretty fun.

^ This too. I've always had a big butt but weighted squats/lunges have made it... perkier.

You need to do squats, lunges and Romanian deadlifts (stiff leg deads). Also look up cable kickbacks done with a bench (there will be a YouTube vid on that). Good luck!

I also have a not so round derrière but I finally started using my elliptical on the highest incline and in two weeks (3-4/week) I saw my but lifting and getting rounder. Now it's part of my workout routine love love love it!!
I have a tiny hiney. It began to perk up and look better after starting adult ballet classes

You may need to do some glute activation exercises.

If you can't fire your glutes properly you'll lose the main benefits of squats and deadlifts.
