We all know Brazilian women have the hottest bodies, so when we heard about the Brazilian Butt Lift workout, we had to pay attention. Created by the ‘Brazilian Butt Master’ (yes!) Leandro Carvalho, Brazil Butt Lift combines Brazilian dance, cardio and signature lower-body sculpting moves to offer a total body-toning workout. No surprise then that Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is a fan as is Jennifer Love Hewitt…and Sting!
We asked Leandro to share his top tips on how to get a Brazilian butt:
1. Identify your butt type
Work out your butt type and go from there! A great way to do this is and to find out how lifted your butt actually is, is by doing the pencil test.
The pencil test is a fun, easy and simple way to tell if your butt is lifted. Simply take a pencil and place it in the crease where your butt meets the top of the back of your thigh. If the pencil stays put or actually disappears, your butt lacks the lift that reduces that crease.
The goal is to lose fat and firm your butt, so it’s lifted and the pencil falls on the floor.
2. Maximise your Brazil Butt Lift workout
I’m the Butt Master so I’m here to help you! Two great tools you can use to maximise your workout are ankle weights and fitness bands.
Ankle weights are really great as they are safe and isolate your butt muscles to work them from different angles, helping you get a more round shape.
The other tool is a fitness band that is included in the Brazil Butt Lift pack. This will help you get more toning and definition and lengthen your legs.
3. Healthier heart, healthier you
A minimum of 20 minutes of cardio exercise two to three times a week will help you develop a stronger and healthier heart. If you go above and beyond, it will help improve your body composition.
Whether this is by doing the Brazil Butt Lift, walking or swimming, anything that is going to increase your heart rate.
4. Plan ahead
If you plan ahead your diet, you have a better chance of success. Shop for the whole week and buy all the nutritious and healthy foods you need for the week to come.
5. Eating out
When you eat out, try and look at the menu prior to arriving to the restaurant. This will allow you to make the best decision when choosing a healthy meal rather than making an impulsive one, leading to an unhealthy choice
6. Small changes
If you make small changes to your eating habits, you can get great results. These can include minor adjustments such as not drinking soft drinks, which are full of sugar, calories and preservatives. This increases the fat on your body as well as cellulite.
