Strong butts and thighs leads to better fat burning, in all areas of your body.
Having a strong, toned butt and thighs will help to reach your weight loss goals as they support you in all movements, such as bending, lifting and twisting. Plus with little or no equipment this workout to tone your butt is budget friendly for all mums.
These exercises are some of the favourites of Nathalia Melo, our amazing trainer for our 28 Days Stronger program, available now in The Healthy Mummy app as part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Nathalia has been a long time fan of being toned and fit, gaining a love of working out at a young age that led to winning big awards like the prestigious Olympia competition, where I took the first place trophy in the Bikini division.
That doesn’t mean she hasn’t had to change how she works out or the exercises she does depending on the time, money and other circumstances that life throws at her. The big change came when she found out she was pregnant.
She says, “Learning to adapt my training during and after pregnancy was overwhelming, so I dove into countless articles, books, and research papers about training and nutrition. Ultimately, I decided to further my education and become a Pre and Postnatal Certified Trainer, to help me refine my understanding of how the body changes during these stages of women’s lives.”
