This is my first time posting, though I love love love the forum and have found it to be so incredibly motivating. I have a question regarding that awful sagging butt issue (some people call them banana rolls, ugh ugh ugh). I've made an assumption and I wanted to ask whether it's correct or not.
I've found if I contract my glutes, my butt lifts nicely and the banana roll temporarily disappears. When I release the contraction, the sag reappears. Does this mean that with the right exercises and build-up of muscle I can eliminate them to look like they do in the contraction? If this sounds confusing, I've attached a pic (left side is the sag - right side is when I tense my glute).
I travel heavily so I've been putting together a bodyweight workout for myself that I can do anywhere based on what I've learned in these forums, with extra attention on my glutes based on the Youtube video "Get a Round Juicy Bubble Butt From Home No Equipment!" - It's basically a collection of various squats and lunges. I personally LOVE the idea of using my own bodyweight (and props that are small and easy to travel with).
PS: I've gone from 210lbs to 135lbs and I've started doing yoga 5 times a week. I'm now ready and excited to tackle weight bearing exercises to get some definition and toning so I can look decent in a bathing suit (I'm much too umm... ripply... at the moment!).
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks SO much in advance!
