Last year we saw a craze among young ladies to get their best butt ever. Instagram feeds (follow @1fitnass) were filled with butt selfies, and fitness trainers like Jen Selter and Amanda Elise Lee became internet sensations amassing millions of followers.
A number of critics think of it as a millennial fad that is fueled by internet craze. But what we’ve found in our research is that there are a number of health benefits of butt workouts that are not commonly known.
And when you’ll know these benefits, you’ll make sure to not miss your butt and leg day anymore.
The Benefits Of A Butt Workout
If you are wondering what those health benefits are, here they are:
1⃣ Blood Circulation on Lower Body
With butt workouts, most of the work and heavy lifting is done by the leg and gluteal muscles which mean blood will circulate well and keep your bum firm so you can forget about cellulite.
2⃣ Less Fatigue
Your legs will get stronger so you’ll feel less fatigue when walking, running or climbing stairs.
3⃣ Reduce Chances of Injury
A butt workout reduces chances of shin splits, sore backs, and knee injuries.
4⃣ Stronger Core
Working out strengthens your abdominal muscles and core resulting in flat abs and strong back.
5⃣ Better Posture
Butt workout has more to do with angles and posture than weights, therefore your posture will get better and you’ll practice more balance.
