Exercises for your Brazilian Butt Squat Challenge

Brazilian Butt Squat Challenge is the best way to lift your booty without surgical intervention. Instead of paying a huge amount of money for the surgery and going through a long and painful recovery, try doing this challenge. It doesn’t require any special equipment and you can do it at home. Here are the exercises you should do:

Narrow squat

Stand with your feet together, slowly bend your knees to 90° while keeping your back as straight as possible. Hold this position for a bit and then get back up.

Split squat

Stand straight, make a long step forward as if overstepping a huge gap. Keep the heel of your back foot raised. Keeping the upper part of your body straight, slowly go down until your back knee almost touches the floor, then get back up. For an equal result switch legs in sequence.

Goblet squat

Stand with legs at shoulder length, toes angled slightly outward. Hold some weight in both hands in front of your chest. Bend your elbows so the weight is positioned in the middle of your chest. Slowly bend your knees to 90° then return to a standing position. 

Lateral squat

Stand straight, put your feet out sideways so that they are wider than shoulder-width and toes turned out slightly. Reach your hands forwards at shoulder height. Then go down over your right foot by bending your right knee and pushing your hips backwards. Repeat, switching legs in sequence.Take 1 Minute Quiz and Get Customized Meal & Workout Plan

FAQs

What is a BBL?

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure that involves liposuction and buttock augmentation. During the surgery, a doctor removes fat from the places of the patient’s body where it is unwanted and puts it into the buttocks (1, 2).

How much is BBL surgery?

The cost of the BBL surgery varies depending on the place from which the fat is taken and its amount. The price is also different from a geographical perspective. 

How long does a BBL last?

Brazilian Butt Lift is not permanent; however, its results are long-lasting. By exercising, following your doctor’s recommendations and controlling your weight you can prolong the effect of the surgery (3).

Conclusion

A Brazilian Butt Squat Challenge is a harmless and natural way to plump up your buttocks. Unlike BBL surgery it bears no risk and requires no money. All you need is your determination, grit, unflappable willpower and a bit of free time. However, before following any exercise plan, please consult a physician or your personal trainer.
