Whether or not you’re a Pilates or yoga lover or you’re new to working out in this way, you’re going to love Chalene Johnson’s newest fitness program: PiYo. Using yoga and Pilates-inspired moves, Chalene has created a program that will not just help you lose weight, but will also help improve your flexibility and resistance to injury. And…while doing it, you’ll also get to sculpt and tone your buns. In fact, PiYo Buns is devoted to your quadriceps, hamstrings, and booty!
Strong butt muscles, or glutes, are important for a bunch of reasons. They’re part of a group of muscles commonly referred to as your core. Like your abs, they support and protect the rest of your body, particularly your back. Having a strong butt can go a long way toward elevating back pain and even knee problems. It can also improve performance…
However, more important than any of these things, a strong butt is crucial if you want to properly rock a pair of jeans! Try out these 5 PiYo moves in order and repeat sequence 3 times for a tighter, sexier butt.
Stand with your feet parallel and 4″–5″ apart. Keep your chest lifted, abs engaged, and your weight in your heels. Bend both knees, lowering your glutes as low as you can and then extend your knees, standing ¾ of the way up. Bend knees again deeply and repeat. If you feel like you’re going to fall backwards, you’re doing it correctly.
Workout: Do 10 Narrow Squats. Go down and pulse for three and stand ¾ of the way up.
Note: If you have knee issues, don’t go as deep.
For this wider squat, stand with your feet wider than your shoulders, and externally rotate your feet. Bend both knees, keeping your tailbone and abs tucked in, making sure to not let your knees go out over your toes. Drive both heels into the ground, engaging your inner thighs, and squeeze your glutes and hamstrings to come ¾ of the way back to standing.
Workout: Do 10 Sumo Squats. Go down and pulse for three and stand ¾ of the way up.
Begin with feet in a hip-width, parallel position. Step back with your left leg, keeping both feet and hips facing front. Bend both knees deeply with your hands in front of you, letting back leg hover just off of the ground. Keep the chest up and abs pulled in. Pulse three times and return to standing. Repeat.
Workout: Do 10 Pulsing Lunges. Repeat with the right leg.
Note: If this bothers your knee, still take a wide step, but don’t lunge so deeply.
This move is similar to one you’d make on the lanes. Begin with feet in a hip-width, parallel position. Keeping your weight on your right foot, step your left foot behind your right, crossing it behind your right leg. Bend both knees, keeping chest lifted and abs pulled in, until front thigh is parallel to the floor. Pulse three times, then return to the starting position and tap your foot on the ground.
Workout: Do 10 Bowlers. Repeat with the right leg.
Place a folded up towel or yoga mat on the ground to protect your knees. Come on to all fours, hands directly under the shoulders, and knees under the hips. Engage your abs, keep your hips level, and extend your left leg behind you, straight and parallel to the floor. Next, bring the leg to the side, perpendicular to your body, again straight and parallel to the floor. Return the leg behind you and repeat. Make sure to keep your core tight the whole time—only your leg should move.
Workout: Do 10 Leg Lifts. Repeat with the right leg.
The PiYo program is a great way to lose weight and tighten your entire body without any jumping, without weights, and without boring you to death. PiYo has already helped thousands of people to get the body they desire… Let’s here from one of them now…
After suffering a trauma in her life, Tiffany G. started gaining weight and couldn’t do anything to lose it and keep it off. She found PiYo and after two rounds has lost 56 pounds and 60 inches! Read on to hear her story in her own words:
In 2009, I had my handsome baby boy. I gained a lot of weight with my pregnancy. I felt depressed, I hated myself and I was very unhappy with my body. I tried to lose the weight. I tried the “healthy” frozen meals, going to the gym, miracle pills and I actually tried a doctor-prescribed medicine. Nothing worked for me. I would lose maybe 10 pounds, then gain it right back.
Then in 2012, I survived a horrific life-altering event. I ended up suffering from severe PTSD. I shut myself in the house away from family and friends. I ate out of comfort and stress. I ended up weighing 200 pounds. I was slowly destroying myself and hurting the relationship I have with my husband.
Then one day I had to take my son to the dentist for a check up. The dentist started talking to me about my son’s nutrition and that led into talking about my nutrition and my weight and health problems. I told him I wanted to make a change in my life and set a good example for my son. He finally suggested Beachbody. I started doing some research and I found PiYo. I asked him if he thought that was a good fit for me. He said he thought it was perfect and he suggested that I also drink Shakeology.
I ordered a PiYo Challenge Pack. Let me tell you what, it changed my life! The pounds just started to melt off. I did 2 rounds of PiYo and I lost 58 pounds and 60 inches. I feel so much more confident in myself. I started leaving the house and spending more time with my family and the relationship with my husband has greatly improved. I honestly can’t say enough good things about PiYo and Shakeology! I just want to thank Chalene and her team! They gave me my life back!
Ordering PiYo can transform your life, just like Tiffany’s. It doesn’t matter how out of shape you may be. PiYo is designed to be simple to follow, low impact, and most importantly – designed to get you results.
