As a small white girl, who was not blessed with a fantastic derrière, I take great pride in my backside. I’ve worked my ass off to build a booty; and after a year of doing consistent squats, I can proudly say,

Baby finally got back!

Build-a-Booty Workout | Fit is Chic

Before I made squatting a habit, I couldn’t even look at the back of my legs. My cellulite made me want to vom, and my confidence would plummet at the site of my legs in shorts.

I have been determined to change my bottom half; and with advice and encouragement from The Boyfriend, accountability through my blog (thanks, y’all), and relentless dedication, I am slowly beginning to love my bottom half. For the first time in my LIFE.

What better week than Valentine’s week to learn to love your body? Try my Build-a-Booty Workout, and fall in love with the power of squats! I mean, who needs flowers and candy when you have a really nice butt? 😉

Build-a-Booty Workout | Fit is Chic

This workout benefits all ranges of athletes. If you’re a beginner, try the whole workout with no weight. If you’re advanced, add weight (up to 35 lbs.) to each exercise. You can make this as hard or as easy as you like.

Try doing this three times per week, but not on consecutive days. You want to give your muscles a chance to rest and repair before working them out again.

If you have questions about a certain exercise or you’re not sure if, or how much, weight you should be using, feel free to contact me. That’s why I’m here.

    Hi! I was wondering if you could show exactly what you mean by a bridge and plank kicks? I think I understand, but I want to make sure I’m doing them right! I’m looking forward to trying this workout in the pursuit of ganging a booty! #whitegirlproblems

      Bridge: Lie down flat on your back, with your feet planted firmly on the ground. Lift your booty off the mat, and then lower back down. That is one rep.
      Plank kicks: Start in a full plank position, with your hands on the mat. Lift one leg up and down, toe pointed, keeping it completely straight. And then switch legs.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions. Xo

      Hi! Yes, I mean dumbbells. In kg, the min. weight would be 6.8 kg, and the max weight would be 15 kg. I hope this helps! Thank you for reading. Xo

      They are pretty similar, the body positioning is just a tad different. For a sumo squat your feet are turned out slightly, you go down as far as you can with your booty out (think sumo wrestler). For a grand plie squat your feet are turned out, your back is completely straight, and your booty is tucked in. When you go down in your squat it should feel as if you’re going up and down a wall (think ballerina). I hope this helps! Xo
