Question: “I’m 46 and gravity is working against me, how can I get a perkier butt?”

Answer: The best exercise to boost you posterior is the squat; to make it ‘perkier’ you need to build muscle mass the following is the appropriate exercise protocol to do just that:

  • 6 to 10 squats
  • 3 to 6 sets
  • 45 to 90 seconds of rest between sets
  • Use a weight, either dumbbells or a barbell, that is heavy enough so that when you get to the 9th or 10th squat it is very difficult, about an 8 or 9 on the RPE Scale.

Remember in order to achieve any fitness goal, you need to use the appropriate exercise protocol!

Thanks for the questions!

In an hour show there is approximately 12 minutes of commercial time.  In a 2 hour program there is almost a half an hour.  Instead of grabbing a snack, do this and you’ll add an extra 15 minutes or even a half hour of cardio to your day!

Since commercials are usually 15 seconds or 30 seconds in duration – switch exercises every time the commercial changes!  Rotate through the following exercises during commercial breaks!

 

Jumping Jacks
Standard Crunches
Jumping Jacks
Push ups (make them easier by placing your hands on the sofa or a chair)
Squats
Jumping Jacks
Standard Crunches
Jumping Jacks
Lunges

To make it a little less intense, instead of Jumping Jacks; march in place or if you have a step or stair case close by do Step Ups!  Remember to always listen to you body and take a rest when ever you need it!
