The Ultimate Guide To Sculpting Your Butt And Thighs

December 17, 2015 3 min read

Having a perfectly sculpted butt and thighs is not only a wonderful way of looking fabulous in your favourite jeans, it could also mean a faster metabolism and a greater overall fat burn! That's right, your butt and thighs comprise some of the largest muscle groups in your body and if they are in shape, it will be easier to get the rest of you in shape, too. As with everything else, getting your lower half in peak form takes a combination of strength training and good nutrition. Here are some strategies to get you moving in that direction!

focus on sculpting

1. Focus on sculpting first.

Before you start thinking about burning fat, it is important to build up lean muscle, so you can get the 'shape' you are looking for. Getting your legs and behind looking right means you have to do a range of exercises, and not just one or two. You have to train all the muscles groups in the area. Your butt is made up of the Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus. To get a high, hard hind quarter, you need to be working all three muscles groups. The same is true of your legs. You need to make sure you are addressing your quads, hamstrings and calf muscles. [bctt tweet="The Ultimate Guide To Sculpting Your Butt And Thighs"]

2. Lift weights.

Lifting weights is one of the best things you can do in your workout. It will build strength and improve your definition. Make sure you stay focused on your forum, doing so will prevent injury and help you target the right muscles. It is also important to remember to keep your core engaged at all times. This will not only help to tone the area, it will help protect your back and spine. If you don't have any weights at home, you can do bodyweight exercises instead! Check out these bodyweight exercises if you are looking for a place to start!

stretching

3. Don't forget to stretch.

We use our butt and legs everyday. Because of this, they are easy areas to injure. Make sure you get in a good warm up before you begin your workouts. A warm up will help you activate and focus on the muscles you plan to work. Don't forget to stretch at the end of the workout to make sure you keep those muscles supple, limber and ready to go the next time you workout!

rest and refuel

4. Rest and refuel.

Doing a workout breaks down your muscle. It is important to give it enough time to repair. That is why rest days are so important. Try to leave 48 hours between your lower body workouts. While taking this time to work other parts, you can aid your recovery by making sure you are eating right. Eat whole, clean, nutrient dense foods to supply your body with the tools it needs to build those muscles. If you are looking to whip your butt into shape (literally) while trimming and toning your entire body, we've got just the thing for you! Our workouts are completely FREE and hosted by ladies that will quickly become your fitspiration (if they aren't already!). If you are brand new to working out or have taken some serious time off from the gym, you should have a look at the BodyRock Beginner Bootcamp Challenge complete with a meal plan designed with you in mind. Edith designed the program with beginners in mind, so you will be challenged but not overwhelmed.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
