Lifting and firming a sagging, soft lower body requires a focused strengthening program. The absolute worst is the people who advocate using solely butt pills, creams, or other wild concoctions as a means to get rid of your saggy problems.
Look, I have no issues with you dabbling with that stuff after you’ve got the real stuff in check — that actually works. But if you think anything that you can consume, or topically apply is going to transform your butt from saggy to perky; then you’re in for some disappointment.
However, even on the sites that advocate the correct things, like nutrition and proper exercises, you will still run into some problems.
Well, a saggy butt most commonly results from two factors: buttock (gluteal) muscle atrophy and excess body fat. Atrophy is essentially a state in which the gluteal muscles (maximus and medius) have wasted away and lost their size and strength. Causes of gluteal muscle atrophy include poor nutrition and a lack of exercise, especially resistance (weight) training.
Poor nutrition and a lack of exercise are also related to excess body fat, the second contributor. Fat tissue is sandwiched between the gluteal muscles and an external layer of skin. Excess fat tissue accumulation in the rear end promotes a saggy butt because this type of tissue is not very dense. Given these facts, the ultimate cure for saggy butt should be clear — Exercise the gluteal muscles and lose the fat tissue.
First let’s talk about the cardio method. A common misconception that many women have is that you need to do excessive cardio to essentially “chisel” your saggy bottom away.
The huge problem with this approach is that you are currently severely lacking muscle mass in the gluteal region; and cardio does little to build any up. And after you burn away all that fat, you will still still be left with a saggy butt, except now it will be much flatter and void of any shape that the fat might have been providing.
However, different body types respond differently to different movements. For some they can work amazing for the buttocks. While for others they might not get those muscles fully firing due to the quadriceps overpowering during the movement.
Well, the answer to your saggy problems is to mix your power building movements like the squat, the deadlift, and the lunge, with an array of targeted butt building exercises that essentially attack the buttocks from every angle.
By following this approach, you can maximize the activation and growth of the gluteus muscles and go from saggy to bubble butt a whole lot faster and more efficiently.
In case you weren’t aware, muscle burns a lot more calories than fat! In fact, it has been shown that a pound of fat burns only 1.2 calories per hour, while a pound of muscle burns about 6.5 calories per hour. So if we want to get rid of a saggy butt, it makes sense to develop our body’s overall muscle mass. That means we want to target our arms, chest, shoulders and back and make all of those areas more muscular.
f you want to rid yourself of a saggy butt, you must eat well! In a previous article of mine where I discuss building muscle, I explain that if you workout regularly, you should be consuming at least 1.5-2.0 grams of protein for each kilogram of your body weight. Consuming adequate amounts of protein will help you develop your overall body muscle mass. It is especially important to take in protein right after a workout. This is because after a workout, a window of opportunity opens where the muscles you worked out are especially receptive to protein you take in.
Cosmetic acupuncture is an area of Oriental medicine that reduces wrinkles; rejuvenates the skin; reduces cellulite, acne, varicose veins and scar inflammation; and augments and enhances the breasts. This specialty area of acupuncture is non-radical, has no side-effects and is a safe procedure that leaves patients feeling healthier and looking younger, while enhancing their immune system.
In cosmetic acupuncture, heat and electrical stimulation are used, along with traditional needling, to accentuate the effect.
Cosmetic acupuncture and electrical stimulation can help sagging muscles in the arms, legs, buttocks, abdomen, face and breasts. This approach is popular both in the Orient and Europe.
Acupuncture and electrical stimulation tend to contract sagging muscles while increasing blood flow through them. With age, we tend to have a decrease in blood flow and circulation to our muscles causing them to lose elasticity, thereby appearing droopy and saggy. This non-invasive treatment can fill out muscles where needed, making us look and feel younger
