Slim and Shape those Gluts & Thighs

Are you looking to have that shapely rear view that will have jaws dropping as you walk down the sidewalk? Well, in one of my longer pieces on this subject titled “Strong Gluts for Fat Loss and Increased Performance”, I discussed the importance of strong gluts for fat loss and overall performance gains. The gluts have been shown to be the prime movers when it comes to forward propulsion during running so how about letting those sexy new shapely gluts propel you through your life.

An April 2009 edition of Women’s health reported that dancers who did plyometric exercise two times per week for six weeks increased their strength by 37 percent and their jump height by 8.3 percent according to a 2007 study. According to the co-author of this 2007 study interviewed by Women’s health writer Dimity McDowell, plyometric moves to your workouts, like jumps, skips and leaping may not only burn more calories, but help you get the results you’re looking for fast!

Work with a qualified personal trainer or coach and get the results you want. A good coach can help you learn more about your body, move better and perform better!
