It’s no secret that when it comes to butts, it’s the Brazilians who know best. But is it all really in the genetics?
Lucky for the rest of us – the answer is a resounding “no.” Truth is, these booty-licious girls work for what they got. And living in a climate that allows constant bikini wear has taught them a thing or two about keeping their derrieres tight, taut, and absolutely bodacious.
So naturally, we researched the bigger butt secrets of some of the sexiest, bodacious-bottomed Brazilian girls out there.
Read on to find out their booty-licious secrets!
Brazilian Bigger Butt Secret 1. Everyday Glute Training
According to Nathalia Melo, a Ms. Bikini Olympia Champion, it’s the daily workouts that make the most difference.
Yes, that’s right, she works those glutes daily. Your gym instructors might insist that it’s better to workout the glutes just once a week, but show them a picture of Natalia so they see the butt you’re aspiring for, they’ll understand.
Plus, famous trainers such as Bret Contreras are also of the belief that glute training can be done at least 3 to 4 days a week without overdoing it.
In fact, with just 4 workouts a week – each lasting no more than 30 minutes (including breaks) – can get you a bigger, shapelier butt in 30 days. How do you do it? Check out the 30/30 Bubble Butt and follow it exactly – it’ll take you to the bigger, higher places your butt wants to go!
Brazilian Bigger Butt Secret 2. Don’t Make it Boring
Variety is the spice of life, and Brazilians are great at injecting variety into their butt workouts. In fact most gyms in Brazil have dedicated sections just for your glutes!
You’ll find your hip abduction machines, hip and squat extensions, reverse hyper type machines, and various ankle and free weights that you can use. When it comes to glutes training do a variety of movements so you can exercise the three different muscles that make up your butt.
According to Ms. Melo, she alternates between squats, lunges, thrusts, bridges, dead lifts, hip hinges, abductions, free weights and a smattering of machine exercises. Yup, these Brazilians definitely invest the needed sweat to keep their figure in tip-top shape.
To get your butt at its loveliest, you’ll also want to hit it from all angles. The 30/30 Bubble Butt has short, structured workouts designed to do just that – these throw the “kitchen sink” of the most effective booty exercises at your butt to maximize growth with little time investment.
Brazilian Bigger Butt Secret 3. Connect Your Mind with Your Glutes
Wait…what? Connecting your mind with your glutes is simply about being hyper-aware of your intentions as you exercises. How do you do this? You really recruit your glutes as you workout.
That means you don’t just go through the motions, but with every squat and every lunge – you make sure you’re glutes are doing the heavy lifting.
After all, the hours spent on glute exercises will go to waste if the muscles aren’t activated properly. So the next time you jump into the gym make sure you feel your glutes doing the work for you.
Brazilian Bigger Butt Secret 4. Pay Attention
Here’s the Brazilian motto that Americans should embrace: There is more to building booty than just squats. Seriously, stop with thinking that squats are your butt’s saving grace. Sure, the Brazilian’s do their fair share of squats, but that’s not all there is to their routine.
There are dozens of other glute-activating exercises you can do. The best way to tell if something is working for your glutes? Pay attention. Put down that fitness magazine and tune into what your trainer is saying for a minute.
Really concentrate on which of the exercises makes you feel the tension and burn in your booty. This could be an exercise using dumbells, bands, cables, barbells or kettlebells. You could be seated, standing, prone, quadruped etc. Just don’t forget to experiment with the different workouts and pay attention to how each move makes you feel. Don’t be afraid to modify or increase the weights or reps if you just don’t feel the burn.
Natalia is personally a big fan of lateral band exercises, glute bridges, hip thrusts and back extensions. While these work for her, they might not be the same routines that will make your glutes scream. Just keep doing your workout often enough, and you will definitely stumble on the routines that are best for your butt.
Brazilian Bigger Butt Secret 5. Don’t Put Cardio in the Corner
If you’ve been religious with your glute workouts daily, but are still unhappy with the less than stellar results, you might be lacking one important thing: Cardio.
Running gets a bad rap when it comes to backside building because it tends to flatten out the curves you’ve been dying for.
So how do Brazilians get their firm backsides from cardio? Uphill walking. The terrains of Brazil keeps these fit girls on their toes. Uphill walking puts the stress on the muscles surrounding you glutes so you get the same loss of fat all while you get muscle definition on your butt as well. What sets Brazilian butts apart is the absence of body fat which would show off tone and those smiling creases at the underside of your booty.
If there isn’t a lot of hills in your neighborhood, you can either work that uphill setting on your treadmill or get on that step machine. The step machine would also have you working your lower body with some form of resistance which is the key if you’re adding tone.
Brazilian Bigger Butt Secret 6. Work That Brazilian Tan
Aside from the bodacious shape of Brazilian Booty, there’s another thing that all these butts have in common, they’re all so gorgeously tan.
While a tan won’t magically make a saggy butt look picture perfect, it certainly helps hide minor sagging. Now, how to get a perfectly tan look even in places where the sun don’t shine?
Aside from frequent beach sessions, Brazilians also make sure that they have a healthy diet of fresh veggies and fruits to keep their skin glowing and pristine.
One juice the Victoria’s secret models swear by? Carrot juice. Aside from being rich in beta carotene it also acts as a natural sunscreen by fighting off the big bad UV rays (you still have to slather on sunscreen though!).
It also gives skin an undeniable warmth that just screams bronze goddess. So the next time you hit the beach, cop a trick from the Brazilians and make sure your stock up that beach bag with liters of carrot juice.
