Maintaining a healthy mind and body is sometimes easier said than done, but we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll give you tips about clean eating, exercise techniques and lifestyle choices to ensure your body is functioning like a well-oiled machine.
The Booty of an Angel
This: Tis the season for crash diets, detoxes and binge gym sessions in preparation for letting it all hang out at the pool come summatime. Everyone knows the pool isn’t actually for swimming anyway; it’s all about hanging out with friends and scoping out the scene (duh).
Or: We are always in awe of a woman who can slip on a pair of jeans and stop traffic with her derriere. Ladies like Kim K are proof of the power that a round backside holds.
…So in order to help you sculpt the tookus you’ve always dreamed of, we have tips from the guru of tight buns, celebrity trainer Leandro Carvalho.
Leandro Carvalho began working with fellow Brazilian, supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, in an effort to create a workout that produced a tight backside while also maintaining her soft physique. Thus, the Brazilian Butt Lift was born and has grown to be one of the most sought-after fitness classes in New York City.
Combining his knowledge of kinesiology and passion for dance, Carvalho devises exercise routines that burn fat and work the glutes. “You’re doing cardio at the same time that you’re using muscles and sculpting the body,” Carvalho says. “All you need is your own body weight. My workout tones your bum bum, but keeps your curves so you can stay sensual and feminine.” Plus, Carvalho’s energy and gorgeous eyes make feeling the burn a little less painful.
Check out the video below for a booty-firming workout with Carvalho and Ambrosio. If you have them on hand, a resistance band and two ankle weights are used in the video; if not, don’t fret! Just use your body weight for now and consider adding those tools to your future workout in order to up the ante!
