Amanda Latona Shows How She Gets Those Glutes Bodybuilding
Hey, everyone atBodybuilding . My name is Amanda Latona. I am the 2009 Flex Bikini ModelSearch championships winner. I am a Team BSN sponsoredathlete and an IFBB Bikini Pro, as well as a Muscle Fitness Hers cover model. I am here today going to showyou a pro bikini glute training workout so you, too, can havesculpted bikini glutes
like a pro. If you're a beginner atexercising, don't worry, don't be freaked out, I'm gonna walkyou right through everything. Start light. You know, you don't have to dothe heavy rep range or the heavy weights like I do, or don'tstart with all of the exercises. Say, choose threeinstead of five.
Although I train every body partonce a week, I actually train glutes twice a week. I do it once on a Monday whenI'm strong, I'm fresh, and I do it again on a Friday. I mean, who doesn't wanta great butt, righté Yeah. Butts are back.
Okay, guys. Here we are on the leg press. Today I'm choosing to do myfavorite positioning, which is feet together. It allows me to lift heavier,get a little more strength behind me, and also shapes theouter sleeves, which is a very nice look to have. We're gonna start heavy on this,so choose a weight that can
allow you to do 10 to 12 reps. If you need a spotter, get one. Safety is first, guys. Gotta keep it safe. So what you want to do isyou don't want to start down here.' cause you never want to haveyour knees going over your toes. I like to do rightin the middle.
Remember, the higher you go up,the more emphasis you get on the glutes, which is why we're here. Okay, here we go. Also, when you're doing this,remember to press through your heels. Whenever you press through yourheels, basically, I like to be able to lift my toes up, 'causethat's how I know that I'm definitely gettinghittingthe glutes.
Doing the Leg Press for a bigger butt
If you're going to use a leg press to geta bigger butt, then it's best you use one leg like this. But you can use twolegs if you're not strong enough. You want to pick a weight that's heavyenough to only allow you to do about five to ten reps. You want to come down slow and not too fast.You want to come down as far as you can, or until your knees touch, oralmost touch, your chest so you can really feel a deep stretch in your butt.Once you come all the way down, then you want to pause for about twoseconds. Then you push the
weight back up. That's how you do the legpress for a bigger butt. Also, when you push your weights back up makesure you push from your heels or the back half of your foot because if youpush from your toes, then your butt won't get that good of a workout. Now,if you look closely here, you can see that my heels are on the leg press.My toes are not on the leg press, so I can force myself into only pushingfrom my heels. Now, depending on how your leg press is designed,you may or may not be able to do this. But if you can't do this,curl your toes up slightly,
which will also make you push only from yourheels. If you find yourself pushing from your toes with this exercise,with your heels elevated, then the weight you're using may be too heavy.

I know you guys havebeen really eager to get an awesome leg workout from me, so I got a killer leg workout calledTree Trunk workout, because it's gonna focus on our quadriceps and our hamstrings.

and the dead lift. So, let me dive right intothe Tree Trunk Leg workout and see how it'll get you guys really strong on your quads andyour hamstrings. So, let's get right into it. All right, guys. First step. We've got anawesome quadricep exercise. We've got the leg extension machine. Now, I know you guysdo this exercise a lot, but we're gonna throw a little different advanced variation to it.We're gonna do a rest pause set with this. So, what we're gonna do is we're gonna go10 reps, fairly heavy on the first set, we're gonna rest for 20 seconds, and then we'regonna go till failure on the second set. So,
you wanna you wanna pick a weight withthat first set, you're pretty close to failure at around 10, and that second set, you'reable to lift between 5 and 8. So, here's how it works. And another thing. If you're reallyfocusing on growing a muscle, you wanna keep your reps slow, in control. You wanna contractthat muscle, back down slow. So, you wanna be close to failure with that first set. Takesome deep breaths. Count to about 1520 seconds in your head. You are mentally prepared togo all out. The second set is so important once this rest pause starts to go all out.So, let's go for 6 here. That's not the rest pause. That was all so much harder than justdoing, you know, 34 sets, and then resting
2 minutes between. If you guys really wannashock your legs, shock any muscle into growth, try out the rest pause strategy. All right. Next step. We've got the singleleg. Some weird country in Europe dead lift, all right some people call it Russian, Bulgarian I don't know what the hell you call it but it is the single leg. Stiff leg dead lift.So, I'm gonna focus on each hamstring. This is an awesome isolation exercise, so if youguys are strong enough to go really heavy on the dead lift yet, it's gonna strengtheneach hamstring. So, let me demonstrate how to do it. You wanna hold the weight, so ifI'm going on my left side I'm going on my
left hamstring I should say I wanna holdthe weight in my right hand. So, new exercise that will work for your balance too. So, youwanna bring this leg back. Keep your leg straight.
