Hey guys hope your all well?

This week I decided to do a post on my fitness regime. It's taken me about 5 years to get to a fitness routine that I am 100% happy with. I have gone from lunges to squats, you name it I've done it. So hopefully this will help some of you. Enjoy the post and I'll see you all next week xxxx
My exercise routine is NOT built to loose weight. It has been constructed to build muscle in the lower half of my body and tone the upper half of my body, in order to achieve a more extreme coca cola type body shape, which is what I like.
LOWER BODY BUILDING EXERCISES
Presently I have reached the hardest level of intensity. The harder the level the better.
The key to getting a bigger ass and better rounded thighs is high intensity for a short period of time.
Make sure your feet are placed wide apart on the floor.
I am currently lifting 50Kg, but I increase this number every time I go to the gym.
REMEMBER the heavier and more intense the better, muscle size on your ass and thighs will increase as weights lifted increases.
I do 6 reps for 6 sets (meaning I lift up and down 6 times then rest for 30 secs. I do this 6 times in total)
Some women are naturally born with wide pelvis bones. I was not. So I use this particular exercise to widen my gluteus medius, gluteus minimus and TFL muscles (which are the hip and inner thigh muscles)
I do 10 reps for 6 sets(10 on each side 6 times in total)
Simply lie COMPLETELY straight, with the weight in the mid way of your thigh then lift up 30 degrees and down. Weights increase with time.
THE HEAVIER THE WEIGHT THE BIGGER THE HIP MUSCLES WILL BECOME
The last lower body exercise involves me using a thick stretchy tubing around feet.
I walk out to the side, then back to the other side. Making sure the tension is kept in the elastic.
You should be able to feel the tension of this exercise in your hip and inner thigh muscles.
I usually do this exercise until I get tired.
Upper Body Toning Exercises
These set of exercises are designed to tone my upper body for an overall slimmer waist. I do 50 reps and 3 sets of each exercise (meaning I do each exercise 50 times for each side of my body, rest for 30 seconds, then do the same all over again for a total of 3 times)
For a slimmer upper body the key is low intensity with many repetitions.
For the first set of exercises I simply stretch out (in the first picture) then lift up (in the second picture)
For my second set of upper body exercises, whilst holding a light weight I stand straight then lift my leg up to the side, and push my elbow and head down to the side.(bottom picture)
