How to Get Wider Hips Naturally: The Basics
First things first, I’m saying wider hips, but that’s just for ease of understanding.
We obviously can’t widen our hip bone..
But we can build up the muscle around it to make them appear wider.
Here’s an example of my wider hips before and after:
How I did this is actually very simple – and I promise you can do it too!
It was by working on growing my glute (butt) muscles.
Your butt is made up of 3 muscle groups.
One is the largest part of your booty, but then there are 2 smaller muscles on the sides (called the gluteus medius and minimus).
By growing these muscles, it not only give you a bigger more rounded booty..
It also gives you wider hips naturally, just by working out!
Here’s a picture of those 3 butt muscle groups..
Many of our movements will focus on the gluteus medius and minimus in the picture above.
As you can see those are the muscles that are really around the hip area.
By growing those, they will give us the appearance of wider hips.
Okay, so how do we grow those muscles..
That’s what we’ll go over next.
Steps to Get Wider Hips Naturally
Growing your butt (and therefore the appearance of your hips), is no different than growing any other muscle.
There are a few absolute musts when it comes to growing your butt in order to get wider hips naturally..
Let’s go over the steps..
1. Continuously Challenge Your Muscles
One thing you will hear a lot when trying to grow muscle is to LIFT HEAVY!
That’s a good generalization, but what does that mean exactly and what is considered “heavy” – and what if you can’t?
When people say to lift heavy weights, it means while you are doing your workout, add as much weight as you can lift for the set amount of repetitions.
For example, if your workout plan says to do 10 squats, you should be using an amount of weight that if challenging enough for you that by rep 8, you are really working to finish and by rep 10 you almost wouldn’t even be able to do 1 more.
This is important especially when you’re starting out because you may see other people lifting heavier weights and be concerned that you’re not doing enough.
Don’t think this way!
All that matters is that the weight you are lifting is challenging for you.
If you continually do that (along with the other steps in this list), you will see results.
“Uhm okay, but I workout at home and I don’t have any weights.”
Okay, no problem.
Yes, you will get results faster by being in a gym with access to seemingly endless amounts of weight BUT…
It is still possible to get results at home.
But you should really have some small basic equipment, such as some resistance bands and/or dumbbells for best results.
