Full, round, perky butts are revered in Brazil. Brazilian women are famous for their beautifully sculpted behinds. This obsession with a lifted, curvy butt has spread to the rest of the world, and now there is even a Brazilian butt lift surgery! Fortunately, there is a way to achieve a gorgeous Brazilian butt without going under the knife. Leandro Carvalho, also known as the Brazilian Butt Master, has designed a workout that sculpts and lifts the butt naturally. Featured on fitnessmagazine.com, this is Carvalho’s 5-minute Brazilian Butt Lift Workout for a beautiful behind.
1. Brazilian Butt Lift Plié-1 minute
Stand with your feet turned out and wider than shoulder width apart. Keep your back straight and butt tucked under as you squat down without letting your knees pass your toes. Raise your arms up to shoulder height, palms down as you squat. Hold for 2 seconds, squeeze your glutes, and lower your arms as you return to the start position. After 20 reps, hold your squat low and pulse for 20 seconds.
2. Brazilian Butt Lift Touchdown– 1 minute
Stand with feet in parallel, shoulder-width apart. Squat down so that your knees are bent at 90 degrees. Step back into a deep lunge with your left leg as you bring the left arm in front of your face with the palm facing out and the right arm the ground outside the right foot. Return to your 90-degree squat with both legs and repeat on the other side. Keep alternating sides until time is up.
3. Brazilian Butt Lift Explosive Lunge– 1 Minute
Start in a lunge with your left leg forward, knee bent at 90 degrees. Keep your weight on your heel and don’t allow your knee to pass your toe. Your right leg is on the ball of the foot with the knee straight down hovering the ground. Keep your opposite hand in front like you would when running. Jump up and switch your legs mid-air to land with the opposite leg and arm forward. Continue to jump, switching sides for 1 minute.
4. Brazilian Butt Lift Lateral Sliding Squat– 1 minute
Squat with your feet together in parallel. Transfer your weight to your left leg. You can use a towel or slider under your right foot if you’re on a slick surface indoors. Raise your arms to shoulder height as you slide your right foot out for 4 counts and back in for 4 counts. Repeat for 30 seconds before switching sides.
5. Brazilian Butt Lift Squat with Kick-Back– 1 minute
Stand with your legs in parallel, shoulder-width apart, and arms at your sides. Keep your weight on your heels as you sit back into a squat. Lift one leg straight behind you as your arms extend forward by your ears. Stay in your squat as you return to the starting position. Switch sides and continue for 1 minute.
Carvalho has brought his Brazilian Butt Lift Workout to Equinox Fitness Clubs in New York City. He promises that with hard work and consistency, his workout will get your booty bikini ready.
