training help for my girlfriend
My girlfriend obsesses about getting a bigger butt and for our next anniversary I thout I'd try to find her a routine and make her a little kit with a new routine and some protein powder and then train her through it. Problem is I've never trained a female before. Is there any routine u guys know of to grow lift and tone the butt? Female training opinions are most welcome

I know when I was helping my GF out. Rosie had chimed in and suggested reading her article.http://www.rosiesmusclerevolution.co...g_the_myth.htm. This def. helped.

Also I would like to state that I just convinced her to workout so I would like to know if maybe there is a routine I can begin with her at home. She doesn't have access to the gym right now

You can get a set of resistance bands fairly cheap( like 15 bucks). And have her do like body weight squats. Pushups, pullups. Burpees. Mountain climbers...I dunno theres alot you can do.

Squats, Jump Squats, Deadlifts, Leg press, Hamstring curls, anything you do for legs she can do for legs.
Circuit Training (which I have learned to enjoy)
She can do something like this
10 reps each consecutively
10 Jump Squats
10 Split Squats each side
10 Box Jumps
10 Mountain Climbers
Rest 2 min between each round. Add weights or sets or reps as she progresses or to accommodate her level of fitness
It's going to depend on what she enjoys too and her level of fitness. When I started out u couldn't get me to do fast circuit training at gunpoint. I just wanted to lift weights, which works too of course.
I like to wing it with my workouts and do full body when I do circuit.
this is a workout I did after a morning run
30 mountain climbers
15 Db 10lbs each jumpsquat
20 Left leg step ups Db
20 right leg step ups Db
30 sec plank
30 sec side plank
30 sec other side plank (people scoff at these I feel em)
10 box jumps
10 1 leg squat L 10lb DB's
10 1 leg squat R 10lb DB's
15 hanging leg lifts
1 min Jump Rope
25 Calve raises 10lbs Db's
3 sets short rest between (I didn't do the 2 min rests)
But I change from day to day, like on another day I'll go for heavier weights and try challenging myself by going heavier or raising rep amount. (just like a dude lol) Those are my favorite workouts
The most beneficial Assercise for me are Squats and Deads.
I am in noooo way a trainer (which would be great to have and I would definitely make faster progress if I did) and I am still a bit far from my ultimate goal, just sharing my personal experience what I've done and what I enjoy.
Good Luck to your girlfriend, maybe u could get her on the forums someday.
note: I wouldn't do only lower body!! Balance, train the whole body for faster proportioned safe results. You need upper body and core strength and fitness to be able to challenge legs efficiently and safely.

Shaping the Perfect Glutes and incorporating those exercises into her training programme - she can do all of them at home, yes.
Another note - there is no such thing as "toning". Toning is a) losing bodyfat, b) gaining muscle mass, or c) recomping.
Read post #2 at Exercise at home to get some ideas of what to do re training if no access to the gym or have limited time, etc.

The 3 Keys to Fat Loss (don't let the title fool you, since the best exercises for fat loss are also the best ones for muscle growth) and adjust to fit what equipment you have at home, as well as adding in a few more exercises for the glutes (i.e. make every other exercise one for the lower body, etc.). You should be able to out something together from all of the recommendations you have been given so far, so no longer require my assistance. All the best!
