Doing Dumbbell Step Up for Butt Flattening

Most of the women will exercise to have a slimmer and flatter backside while men will focus on lifting and firming glutes muscles. If you intend to have a flutter but firmer butt, you may want to try a number of exercises which include hip lift progression, dumbbells set up, and single sky bridge. In a Coquitlam group personal training, you can execute these exercises with aid of an experienced personal trainer to make sure you do them properly and safely. When you train alone, you do not have that sense of competition. You may think that you are doing it all fine but there is room to make improvement when you work in a manageable group with help of a fitness trainer.

Doing dumbbell step up

This exercise works the butt, hips, and thighs. It requires the exerciser to use a raised platform or step. In doing the exercise, you hold a dumbbell in each hand and stand with the feet placed at hip width apart. You also ensure that the palms face inward or on the side of the legs then pull the shoulders down and back.

By placing the right foot steady on the platform try to push off using the left leg to lift up the body onto the platform. Now, place the left foot next to your right foot, then stand upright. Continue by slowly positioning the body weight onto the right foot and stepping backward using the left foot, and place it on floor to attain its original position. At the same time, allow the body to lean forward slightly.

Now, transfer the body weight to that foot on floor and then step off with the right foot. You can repeat the exercise using the opposite side and perform about 10 reps in each side. This exercise will work the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and the calves.

Ensure you breathe as you execute that force needed to pull up the body weight onto the platform. This exercise is ideal for people who have lower back problems but they are unable to perform stiff legged deadlifts. In variations, a barbell may be used as the load for the resistance. For beginners, they may want to start with bodyweight so that they build their balance before they can add some loads.
