Jogging is a great way to get lean legs and can be highly therapeutic but it is not a great way to grow your bum! Sprints are a great alternative as they can burn calories and fat quicker while still maintaining your muscle. When you are sprinting you are activating your Glutes, so this can help to grow them and give them a rounder shape. If you still insist on jogging, then put the treadmill on incline or jog up a hill to work your Glutes. I use to be a keen cross country runner and I can tell you from experience, excessive jogging can actually make your Glutes smaller! And we definitely don't want that do we???
2. Work With The Force
By force, we mean resistance; this includes anything that will exercise your muscles using an opposing force. Doing the ‘squat challenge’ and performing 100 squats a day might sound fun and can help you to burn a few calories, but this will not build your bum, as you are not challenging or pushing yourself. Instead try to use an exercise band or even better, weights and focus on high rep training and heavy compound lifting to build your Glutes. Get out of that comfort zone and start to really work, that’s the only way you will see the results you desire.

4. How You Can ‘Actually’ Grow Your Hips
Ladies, I have read several articles that promise you that you can grow your hips, I’m here to tell you it is impossible to grow your hips through exercise. I’m sorry for crushing your hopes, but I can however, tell you how you can grow your Glutes to give the appearance of larger hips. You can increase the Gluteus Medius (the muscle on the sides of your glutes) by incorporating weight-training exercises that target this area. These exercises include: cable hip abduction, hovering hip abduction, the hydrant and lying forward leg lift with ankle weights. Now I can’t promise this will make a major difference, as we all know muscle growth takes time but every little helps!

6. Fake It Till You Make It
So we have all the tips and tricks we need and we are ready to put the work in to grow our derriere! But for the meantime, here’s a quick fix on how to give the appearance of a bigger bum. And no, I am not going to say waist trainers or those funny pants with two holes in the bum cheeks. Like seriously, the things you see on the market these days, even supplements to grow your bum?! Anyway, I promise you these tips are suitable for everyone and will not cause you harm:
- Emphasise your waist by wearing high waisted jeans/ leggings, this will make your bum stand out more.
- Opt for stretchy fabrics in your clothes to make sure you aren’t flattening your booty or making it look saggy.
- Accentuate your rear by wearing heels, this will cause you to modify your posture.
- Walk with your back straight and keep an eye on your posture, this will force your booty to pop out more.
- Wearing colour can help to make your booty stand out, have you ever owned a pair of grey leggings? Thank me later.
- Wear a coat/ jacket/ dress that has a waistband that you can tie, the quickest way to an hourglass figure!
