Let’s see if Nicki Minaj and Ellen can help us with this one:
That’s right boys and girls, apparently if you’ve got junk in your trunk aka big butts, you are all the rage these days.
So what’s all the hoopla when it comes to the derriere?
Well, if you were to ask most men, they would probably just shrug and say something to the effect of, “I dunno. I just like ‘em,” but as I’m about to explain, the attraction is more than skin deep.
We’re talking DNA here folks!
Deep in the subconscious, primal parts of every man’s brain, way past all the cobwebs, sports facts and “Yo mama” jokes, lies the inherent desire to seek a healthy mate who can reproduce and continue the species.
According to Evolutionary Psychologist Gordon G. Gallup, Jr. of the University of Albany:
Ohhh. Well, that makes sense.
So, now that we know what boys like, how the heck can women take advantage of this genetic programming by sculpting their buns and mid-sections to be more attractive?
Just in case you haven’t heard this before, I’ll say it loud and clear for you, “Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym!”
What this means is, if you want to lose a little of the extra body fat off your mid-section, focus on eating better instead of wasting time doing ineffective exercises like crunches.
Try doing some sprint intervals instead of steady state cardio.
Short, high intensity bursts of exercises, like sprinting, is a great way to rev up your metabolism and burn off some of that extra belly fat.
As if that isn’t a good enough reason to do sprints, they are also one of the BEST ways to build up the all-important gluteus maximus muscle in the booty, giving it a nice perky look!
If it worked for Flo Jo, it can work for you too!
Squats might be the “king of exercises” but if you’re looking to maximize and target your rear end while squatting, make sure you squat BELOW parallel to optimally involve the glutes and guarantee to turn some more heads both in and out of the gym.
We might not all agree with Sir Mix-A-Lot when he claims that, “She gotta pack much back”...
Butt it’s kinda hard to argue with science.
(See what I did there?)
