Default Silly Question!

Okay, I know you cannot "spot reduce", but I find that my butt keeps getting smaller and smaller, and I want it to be cute and round!!! LOL

So is there any certain exercise that you all would recommend that might umm...enhance my rear end? I know running is good for it, but let's face it kids, I am not a runner. Anything else? I'm desperate. My butt is getting flat and I'm sad about it.

Running would actually make your butt smaller. Try some leg resistance training. Your muscles give your legs and gluts their shape.

I recommend squats, lunges, step ups, romanian deadlifts.

Compare a gymnast physique to a marathon runners physique. Running will train your body for a runners physique, which is not the shapely figure it sounds like you are after.

Good Luck!

Oh! Okay, great! Thank you so much! I mean, I don't care if it gets smaller..I just want it to be lifted and to have a little "bubble" there, you know? I could stand to lose some inches all over, obviously. I just don't want my butt to go away!!

I'll try those out!

As Jason said, squats, lunges and deadlifts.
