If you’re longing for a toned butt, you may have surely been dedicating some of your time doing squats and lunges. If doing these exercises, however, isn’t giving you the results you are looking for, you may be wondering what you’re doing wrong or if you’re ever going to have toned buttocks.
Disappointing results could mean that you’re making mistakes associated with exercise and diet. Here are some of the things that are getting in the way of a firm and toned bum.
You do the same workouts every day
While doing lots of squats and lunges can help, you need to mix up your routine to get the results you’re looking for. This means working out your butt from all angles, as well as including resistance training and some cardio exercises in your routine.
Do take note that you can’t see true results if you’re repeating the same exercises every day. Mixing it up or doing exercises that work different muscle groups can also prevent you from getting bored and eventually giving up.
You ignore your diet
Although it is true that the right exercise can help you get a toned butt, you also have to mind what you’re eating. To build your ideal physique, you have to eat right to lose excess fat and then tone different areas of the body.
You have to watch your portions, as well as load up on vegetables, good fats, and lean proteins. Be sure to avoid sugar, empty calories, and processed foods. Consulting a dietician can help you design the right diet.
You’re comparing your bum to the ones you see on Instagram
The bums that you see on Instagram and other social media sites are not always realistic. Filters and Photoshop have made it possible to trick our eyes and give us unrealistic expectations.
The best thing you can do is to continue your efforts and give yourself credit for any improvement. You also have to be reasonable with your expectations and stop making Instagram your standard for success.
You underestimate your genetics
Your genes mostly predetermine the size and shape of your butt. Some have naturally large or round buttocks, while others have a flat pair. If you fall in the latter, you may be glad to know that the situation is not completely hopeless.
If you’re not blessed with a rounder butt, you have to exert more time and effort in doing the recommended training and maintaining a balanced diet.
What Can Help
Here at Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we believe that regular exercise and a balanced diet is the key to having a healthy body. If you, however, want to boost your effort or simply don’t have the time and energy to do intense workouts, a nonsurgical body shaping procedure is worth considering.
ZField Dual is a CE-cleared non-invasive body shaping device made in Germany. It uses electromagnetic pulses to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions in the area of concern. This then helps patients achieve or get closer to their ideal physiques with just a few treatments.
The device has two applicators with the same application settings. Both can be used at the same time to stimulate opposing sections of the muscles (like the buttocks, for example). It is also possible to use just one applicator. Read on and learn how it can help you achieve a toned butt:
ZField Dual at work: The device induces targeted muscle contractions using high frequency electromagnetic energy. It generates a strong inductive field, enforcing a muscle’s highest possible contraction. It enables around 27,000 contractions during one treatment, which is not achievable through voluntary means.
This then exposes the tissues to supramaximal contractions, forcing them to adapt to extreme conditions. The body responses to this by strengthening the muscle fibers, resulting in improved muscle conditioning and fat burning.
Treatable areas: ZField Dual is designed to strengthen and tighten the abdominal, gluteal and thigh muscles. It can also treat lower back, calves, and arms. It provides a targeted muscle treatment that can tone and shape different areas of the body. With ZField Dual you can:
- Lift your buttocks non-invasively
- Build muscles without sweat
- Achieve a six-pack without intense workouts
- Have a 30-minute ab treatment equal to 20,000 sit-ups
The procedure: ZField Dual is performed with the patient lying down and usually lasts between 20 and 40 minutes. The procedure is also comfortable, virtually painless, and has no downtime. This only means that you can go back to your regular activities immediately after the treatment.
Ideal candidates and results: The procedure is ideal for those who want to tone and sculpt their bodies, and get in better shape. The energy field stimulates involuntary muscle contraction of the gluteal region or the entire abdominal wall. The end result is a fuller, firmer and lifted buttocks, and a more sculpted abdomen.
