    My Q is the opposite. Im trying to change the shape. Make rounder, lift, less flat but all i accomplish is reducing size which i dont want. Im a small frame. Am i fighting genetics? My butt wont shape up, just shrink? I really need lift. Im 52 and have had severe weight loss and cant seem to recover muscle properly.

    1. Christine Sanelli

      Hey Karyn, I would make sure you are eating enough calories and protein in order to build muscle. Focus on working your glutes, perhaps try to up your weight when you lift. After your workouts, try having a protein shake in order to build muscle and recover. Let me know if you have more questions!

      Have you found a solutions to this now? How is your fitness journey going?

    Everyone is talking about getting that bubble booty. What if your butt is big (and not in the good way) and you want to make it smaller and more toned…..not so much junk in the trunk if you will lol. Would these work outs make it smaller and more toned and not bigger?

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      That’s such a great question! I’ll bet other women are thinking the same thing, so thank you for addressing it. If you have excess fat on your bum, building muscle underneath will help you burn that fat so that over time you’re left with muscle, because muscle burns more calories than fat. Now, we can’t spot reduce fat, which means in order to lose that fat around your glutes, you’ll need to focus on burning overall fat. You can do this by increasing high intensity cardio, like running sprints, or even exercises like hiking, which increase your heart rate. You’ll also really need to focus on strength training, whether that’s yoga, pilates, weight training, etc. because again, building muscle is key to fat loss. I recommend yoga if you’re looking to lean out. It’ll help you build that lean muscle mass, which will help you lose overall fat, and don’t neglect your diet. Lots of water, veggies, low-carb, high-protein. Just give it time 🙂

    Would the leg press machine work as well as the squats, especially if i place my feet higher on the board?

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      The leg press is a very effective machine. Typically, using the leg press is a great alternative to weighted squats for those who have back or knee injuries. However, if your joints are good, I do recommend implementing squats into your routine, as gravity places more emphasis on your glutes and legs than that of the leg press. I think it’s good to keep variety in your routine, so maybe use the leg press one leg day, and weighted squats on another 🙂

  4. Angie

    Hi there, just wondering if you could share where you get your cute workout clothes? The two-toned with socks are super cute!
    Thank you! 😊

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Angie! Karina gets a lot of her workout clothes from Bombshell Sportswear. 🙂

  5. Anna Rowlands

    Would you recommend regular lunges/barbell lunges or are these not as effective?

    Thank you – these ideas above look great!

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Yes Anna! Lunges are also great! I love barbell lunges! You could definitely do those as well! These are just some suggestions. 🙂

  6. Hanslee

    Can you give me an idea how I can schedule a workout for example twice a week do a gluteworkout. How many times a week I have to do cardiovascular and weights? Do you recommend to focus on one muscle group at a time? Thank you in advance

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Hanslee, so a lot of it depends on personal preference and your fit goals. I personally lift 4-6 times a week, and include some cardio into my workouts. If you are wanting a good place to start though, I 100% recommend taking Karina’s 15 Day Fit Model Fitness Challenge! It is free and includes really effective exercises, along with meal plans, grocery lists, and other helpful tools to ensure your success.

  8. Tara

    I was interested in seeing these videos but I do not have instagram

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi tara, we pulled the videos from Instagram so you don’t have to have Instagram to watch them. You can watch them here. 🙂 Were you having trouble viewing them?

  9. Norma Tavarez

    I’m 53 and my booty has all but discipated. Do I have any chance of recovery?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hey Norma, unfortunately as we age this can tend to happen… but it could still have a chance for recovery. You just may have to work harder at it now. Do exercises a few times a week that target your booty! You could try Trainer Lindsey’s 15 Day Fit Body Challenge: She incorporates leg and glute workouts and provides meal plans!

    2. Daphne

      I am 59 and my boo-tay looks like it is in its mid to late 20’s So with the work clean eating and BCAA’s and Protien it will do ya body and booty good. And yes it will be more work for us “seasoned” ladies. I began really working mine at 53 .

      1. Audrey

        Daphne, how did build your booty at 53. What type of exercise, reps, etc did you do?how much protein do you consume? How long did it take to get results?

  10. Rossella

    How often should I do these workouts ? Is it alright to do every day?

  11. JG

    What about hip-thrusts?
    Also, squating does not activate the glutes nearly what you think. Squating targets the quads and erector spinae.

  12. Vee

    I love the video’s they help so much. I just hit my first goal of 25lbs lost! Thank you for doing what you do.

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      That’s great Vee, so glad to hear that! Keep us updated on your progress!

  13. Penny

    I am very interested in more workouts for legs and booty as I gain strength little by little you all are great along with the products I have purchased so far. Slowly but surely things are changing yeah

  14. Lauren

    How many sets & resp do you do? Do you do all of these exercises in 1 day or over the course in your workouts?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hey Lauren, you could pick five or six at a time and perform anywhere from 10-15 reps of each exercise repeated two or three times depending on your fitness level. If you want more workouts from Karina, we recommend checking out her 15 Day Fit Model Fitness Challenge. Here is the link: https:// idealfit-thg.eu-west-1.elasticbeanstalk.com/fit-model-fitness/
