Get Kelly Brook's bum!
Tuesday 24 April 2012
Size 10 Kelly Brook, 32, shared photos of herself posing on a Cape Town beach on blogging site Tumblr last week, leaving women everywhere envying her gravity-defying bottom. Move over Pippa Middleton! But the good news is that, whatever your shape, you can boost your bum with some simple tips from Kelly’s trainer, Nicki Waterman.
Your four-week perfect bum plan
Fitness guru Nicki Waterman, who trained Kelly for the Strictly Come Dancing DVD, says: “Your bum is made up of three major muscles and, if you work them, it could be tighter, smaller and more pert within four weeks – whatever your size. Do two sets of each exercise every day – the workout takes around five minutes – and you’ll soon see a difference.”
Targets the bum cheeks
Step to the right and lunge, bending your right leg to 90 degrees, making sure your knee doesn’t go past your toes and keeping your back straight. Pulse up and down 15 times. Repeat on the other side.
Targets the sides of your bottom
Lie on your left side, knees bent at a 45-degree angle. Keeping your heels together, lift your right knee up, then slowly lower to the count of five seconds. Repeat 15 times, then swap sides.
Targets the gluteus minimus (the
muscle that makes your bottom pert)
On all fours, raise and stretch your right leg out behind you, until in line with your body, then bring your knee back to the floor. Repeat 15 times, then swap sides.
Nicki adds: “Boost your results by doing these exercises plus a 30-minute jog, swim or cycle three times a week.”
