2018 has most definitely been the year strong vs thin when it comes to women’s bodies. As much as we hate to admit it, we all have our body hangups, and one of the most focused on body part of this year, and more than likely next year, is the bum. Luckily Assome is helping women everywhere achieve the bum of their dreams with its miracle mix of body shaping technology. Aligning the powers of LED, ultrasonic waves and radio frequency Assome gives bums the photo shop Instagram filters can only aspire to.
But as Jane Fonda purported, no pain, no gain and for best results to hone that perfect peach some booty busting exercise is essential.
Ready to twerk it? Here are Assome’s top 3 tips to push that tush.
Elevated lunges give a greater range of motion as only one leg is used. This means there is much better opportunity to overload the butt and thigh muscles which will make them bigger.
Begin by standing a few feet in front of a step and reach left foot back so toes are on the bench and heels lifted.
Bend the right knee, lowering your body toward the floor until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. If your right knee extends in front of your ankle when you lower, move your right foot farther forward.
Squeeze the glute as you press yourself back to start, keeping the weight in your right leg. Continue moving down and up for desired number of reps and switch sides.
Although barbell squats primarily work quadriceps they also train the glutes as well as the hamstring and calves. For this reason, barbell squats are great for increasing quad strength as well as building muscles in the ass.
Begin with the barbell supported on top of the traps. The chest should be up and the head facing forward.
Descend by flexing the knees, refraining from moving the hips back as much as possible.
Continue all the way down, keeping the weight on the front of the heel.
Due to the foot positioning used in sumo squats more muscle emphasis is put on the inner thigh adductors and glutes.
Begin with feet in a wide stance, toes pointed out as far as is comfortable. Keeping the back and spine in a neutral position, and torso upright, tighten the core.
Bend the knees outwards so they remain over the ankles and sit down with the butt into a squat position. Squeezing the glutes, rise up about 2-3 inches, and then lower.
Continue this pulsing for the desired amount of time to complete a set, then raise out of the squat to finish.
Sounds easy, huh? I’m going to give it a try, because every little helps! I’m also really trying to get into a better routine when it comes to exercising. I work in an office so literally am sat down for 8 hours a day- then I go home and chill on the sofa. In terms of the Assome, I was interested to see how it would work for me. Now, we’re all aware of the fact that I am a plus sized woman, right? I feared that I’d be too chunky (but funky!) for the Assome when it arrived, but in actual fact, there is SUCH noticeable difference that I am convinced that if you have just a little bit of wiggliness and that orange peel effect, it will pretty much disappear! I have taken some photos, and who knows, maybe I will be brave enough to post them one day.
It looks a little space agey but it’s super easy to use, and will be able to fit into your current skincare routine easily. It’s aim is to lift, tighten and reduce cellulite. My next step in my journey is most definitely to lose a little more weight on my bottom half while simultaneously try and tone up- the Assome is most certainly coming with me on my journey!
