Exercise > Butt

I have lost a bit of weight over the past 5 weeks or so. I have taken photos of myself and decided I am a 'pear' shape. In the photos I feel I have a saggy butt and too much cushion on my thighs , hips ect. So basically my goal for the next so many months is to really focus on lifting my butt and tightening the thighs. I just purchased a back hyperextention machine. It is great. I feel it very quickly in the workout. I am just not too sure how many reps I should be doing. I want to keep going at it to really lift that butt area...but I don't want to do too much and hurt my back (if that's what would happen with too much). I guess that's my question. How many should I do and work up to?

Exercise > glutes

I have this same problem. I am 8 weeks out from my first figure comp, and everything else is coming along, but when I look at my glutes in my bathroom mirror, I shudder. I am starting to do extra cardio in the morning. Two days of light steady cardio for 30 minutes on my stationary bike, along with my weight training in the afternoon and HIIT. The other 5-6 days I am doing step ups,body squats, side lunges with a band, donkey kicks, and as much walking as possible(I'm a stay at home mom so it is super easy for me to sit on my butt and drink coffee). I will also be training glutes and thighs twice a week now instead of once. Is this too much or am I on track? And is 8 weeks enough time to tighten my backside. ALL of my fat is in my butt and thighs.

Exercise > Body Beast? Cathe Freidrich?

Thanks. I just purchased the book, cannot wait to get into it later on after work! I check myself in the mirror, I tried posing to see what I look like and pick myself apart as what needs work. I have taken photos of myself. I know my stomach needs flattening and that part goes without saying in most people I guess. My upper body seems fine (always needs work) but my hips have too much fat on them as do my upper thighs. My butt hangs too low. When I compare my photos to photos of women in a bikini competition, I know mine is too low. Back to the stomach, I gather when my stomach gets down so does my waist. I did buy a skin fold caliper from amazon so I am waiting for that to arrive today. I will probably be on here quite a bit. Thanks.

Hi Kazzepink. Thanks so much for your post! As for weight training most programs are great. I'm a firm believer that any resistance training is great training as long as it's done consistently. :) For competition however it gets a little more technical. We want to work on our 'weak' areas to build up muscle where we need it. For instance, I used to have very small shoulders, which only enhanced my natural pear shape. I really needed to work on broadening my upper back and building up my shoulders to give me more of an hourglass look, which of course I did. That was accomplished through very targeted weight training. As for the ebook that can be viewed on any electronic device. A desktop computer is fine. :) I hope that answers all of your questions. With love, Kristin

Competition Tips > Makeup Color??

Kristin Shaffer

First of all Haley you look AWESOME girl!!! Good for you!!! And I'm so pleased you love the Era spray makeup as much as I do. I won't use anything else. For touchups the makeup comes with a soft cloth made of cotton I believe. You can spray some of the foundation on that cloth and blot on to the spot that needs touchup. I've had to do that on a number of occasions. If you don't have the cloth that came with the spray then any really soft cotton cloth should work great. I hope that helps and make sure to send pics from your next competition! With love, Kristin
