How to get your booty in shape in time for summer
Let’s play a word association…. Ready? Summer.
What came to mind? Was it mango? Maybe it was the ocean, or maybe it was anxiety that summer is around the corner and you aren’t feeling body confident?
For us, it’s booty! And we want to know every last secret to lift and sculpt our own butts.
Here, we’re rounding up how to get to the bottom of the secret to a booty in time for summer.
Give your bottom the attention it deserves with these 5 tips!
1. Activate your booty muscles
There are specific exercises to target your bottom and thighs. The 28 Day Challenge Booty Busting Bootcamp (which comes with BRAND NEW butt and thigh workouts) is a great place to start to target your booty.

2. Keep drinking water
Drinking water helps flush out the toxins from the body. Hydrating your body keeps your skin cells fresh and it can help smooth out the appearance of your skin.
“I drink around 3 litres of water a day and it has made my skin appear much healthier and smoother,” says Healthy Mummy Julia Meadows who transformed her booty.
If you can’t seem to make it to your daily water intake without becoming bored, try infusing your water with lemon.
Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning gives your body a kick start to the day and has these awesome benefits.
3. Eat specific food
Food to build the butt are either amazing sources of PROTEIN or CARBOHYDRATE dense foods.
When it comes to carbohydrates they’re important for building muscle mass as they are the main source of FUEL, and help improve fatigue. No carb enemy’s here!
Some foods to help build your booty muscles are:
- Whey protein (Have you tried our Chocolate Protein Powder?)
- Sweet potato (try out this sweet potato recipe)
4. Make sure to recover
Recovery after a workout is just as important, if not MORE important than the workout itself.
This is because this is when the muscles have their time to recover, build and get ready for their next session! Without this recovery, injury, lack of energy or plateauing could come about.
Try a Healthy Mummy smoothie on your next rest day. Jam packed with all the good stuff your body could need, like vitamins, minerals, and of course protein.
You can bulk them up with fruit, nuts, seeds and veg of your choice to suit your calorie needs.
You should establish a routine that allows you to incorporate stretching such as yoga to help let your muscles recover from the strenuous training from the days before.
