A Better Behind With These 5 Moves from Pilates People

Written by 
Just who doesn’t desire a much better rear end? Not only will having a tougher butt look really good, a strong behind helps your back and improves your metabolism.
Your rear is part of your core stabilizer muscle tissue and improving it keeps the back healthy.
Plus, the gluteal muscle tissue is biggest in the human body, and when you tone them you get more calorie-burning muscle that revs your metabolism. I love the way Pilates moves overall tone and shape the bottom.
Consider doing these types of moves 3 to 4 times a week for a sexy, strong behind.
Awkward Chair Pose
Chair pose is a superb squat that sculpts the pelvis, thighs, and buttocks. Start standing having your legs together, then bend your knee joints and sit way back in to an imaginary seat. Raise your hands up alongside your ears and press your palms together. Feeling your legs totally engaged and supporting you in the pose. Hold eight to ten breaths for optimum results and repeat 3-5 times.
Revolved Half Moon Pose
Standing in the front of the mat, raise your left leg up in the air as your hinge your torso forwards. Lower your right hand towards the floor, and raise your left hand up to a twist. Keep the hips completely level, engage the thighs, and twist from your core as well as hips. Hold 5 to 8 breaths for each side.
Upward Plank Pose

I love this position for firming the area where the rear and top of upper thighs meet. Get started sitting with your legs directly out in front of you and the hands ten inches behind you with the fingers facing ahead. Push firmly in to your hands and feet and raise your body up. Engage your hamstrings and whole back body. Hold for eight to ten breaths and perform 2 more times.


Ballerina Butt Lifts

This Pilates move tones your entire buttocks area plus the hamstrings and lower back. Lay face down with your forehead on the hands. Bend the knees and bring the heels together and move your toes out. Push your heels up to the ceiling plus raise your knees off of the floor while pinching your heels together. Lower downward and then repeat for twenty reps.
The Clam
The clam is ideal for toning the gluteus minimus as well as rounding-out the behind. You can perform these any time, even when watching television! Lay on your side having your knees stacked then open and close your top leg (while maintaining the toes altogether) twenty times. Really focus on squeezing the outer thigh, hips, and rear. Switch and do the opposite side.

Pilates San Diego is a body conditioning routine that builds flexibility, muscle strength (making muscles lean and elongated, not “bulking up”), and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, his, and back.  It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core or center, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates San Diego system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty, from beginner to advanced.  Clients can proceed at their individual pace, and intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.
