You have legs too

All your focus is on your legs, you are too much focused on your butt that you are completely neglecting other crucial aspects totally. You need to add weighted squats, deadlifts, jump squats, jump lunges and box jumps to work on your quads and hamstrings.

Work on muscle fatigue

People don’t understand but working on muscle fatigue is important as well. Make use of light weights for more reps, it will be as effective as lifting heavier weight for lesser reps. Of course, it will be challenging but you will reach your muscle fatigue by the end of the exercise.


Your diet is important

Just exercising won’t get you anywhere. You will have to take special care of your diet as well. The common notion is not to consume too many calories and avoiding processed foods but there is more. When we are talking about diets, proteins play an important role. You must consume one gram protein per kilogram of your body weight. Leans proteins like eggs, chicken, tofu and yogurt etc. should be enough.
