Yes, I have a fat ass.
Basically, my butt muscles are just really big, and so they stick out quite a bit. Now, I know it sounds quite amusing, and I’m expecting a whole load of jokes, but I’m also hoping for some help in addition.
This is a serious question, cuz my glutes really stick out and it really changes the way I look, i just look really fat depending on how my clothes fall on me.
My first question - how can I avoid working these muscles? Is there anyway I can minimise the work my glutes perform on the squat? What about on that machine which works your hams (the one where u sit, and push the bar down with your legs), how much emphasis is placed on the glutes?
Basically, how can I continue to perform my full body workouts without working the glutes? If it is not possible to squat without working the glutes, what other exercises can I do instead to work all the relevant muscles (but not glutes).
My second question - this is with regards to reducing the size of my glutes. As I understand it, the only way to reduce muscle size is via atrophy, which would involve me cutting cals and weight training.
I was wondering, if i cut my cals (something similar to a v-diet), and did heavy strength lifting to maintain as much muscle as possible, but NOT my glutes (i.e. avoided all exercies involving the glutes), would I be able to reduce the size of the glutes without as much loss to all over muscle?
What about performing high high reps with a low weight? Is it possible to reduce muscle size this way?
Again, I realise how stupid this may sound, but it is really something I want to work on, as it actually affects my confidence in public.
In addition to the above, I am working on my anterior pelvic tilt, which I am sure makes my glutes look like they stick out even more.
If you guys could offer your input on my above questions, that would be great.
