8/01/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

One of my most favorite bottom exercises is single-leg squats.  The best way to keep the bottom appearing raised and rounded is to work the gluteus maximums, the gluteus medias, and the gluteus minimums (smallest and deepest).  The single-leg squats, as well as walking lunges with a weight bar, are also effective exercises.

It is really important to track your bent knee placement when doing these exercises.  You don’t want to allow your knee to flare out or get out in front of your foot.  You can cause stress or damage to your knee that way.  If you feel any pain, then stop.  If need be, contact your physician.

As we get older, gravity impacts our shape so we have to work actively against that southerly pull and fight to keep it perky!
