Yes,I will write about this again, I wrote about this in my old blog, for new blog readers who have this problem
I will explain why your butt is flat or smaller after your pregnancy
During your pregnancy you will gain a bit more fat because the estrogen levels increases,this fat will often collect on your thighs,butt and hips and belly,and it varies depend on how much food you consume during your pregnancy and also your genetic where you will store your fat,after pregnancy your body’s estrogen levels drops a lot and it will take a few months before your body start to produce the normal level of estrogen again
When you start breast feed your child after pregnancy hormones will be releases and those hormones works like your own lipo suction when you breast feed and it will help you to lose weight really fast especially from the fat deposits that are stubborn like your thighs,hips and butt,and when that happen you will end up with the same body weight you had before or less weight than before but with a much more flat butt or perhaps smaller legs and hips
But wait.., it is more to that story…
During your pregnancy when your belly grows you will arch more and when you do, you don’t use your butt muscles like you did before your pregnancy and if you don’t activate your gluteus(butt muscles) they will become smaller and weaker and therefore your but will become smaller or more flat
Not everyone will notice this,but a lot of females will
When I had my son, I could only breast feed for 2 weeks, I hardly had no milk in my breast,this was not because I had silicone, this was happen to my other sisters as well and they don’t have breast implants
But I notice that my butt was more flat from the profile and when I tried to train again it was WAY to hard to get that apple booty again! I trained and trained and my butt did not look the same as before I had my son
It took me a very log time before my butt look the same as before with weight training and now I am there again with a full booty from workout:-)
SO, my suggestion to all the mommies with the flat butt syndrome is NOT GIVE UP or get to sad!
Here comes my tips for you!
1, During your pregnancy do not over eat, you don’t have eat for 2 people, you ONLY need like 250-300 calories extra per day to feed your baby and make sure he/she will grow and develop like he/she should
2, ACTIVATE your gluteus(butt) everyday by taking a walk for at least 30 min,or indoor bike etc
3, Train your gluteus 2 times per week,but you have to be very careful and not use to heavy weights during your pregnancy,use only 2 legs exercises and NOT one leg exercise,becuase your pelvis must be in a straight line all the time
examples of exercises you ca do:
* Squats with your two feet, slowly and with control, do not go down to deep
* Butt bridge slowly with control
* Hip thrust slowly with control
* Stiff deadlift slowly with control
* Deadlift slowly with control
Use ONLY light weights or your body weight, avoid all the one leg exercises because if your pelvis tipp you will have back problems and also pain in the groin for a very long period of time! This was a mistake I did, after I did lunges
It cracked in my groins and after that I could not walk more than 15-20 min because of the pain,and also in my lower back, and I had this the whole pregnancy! and I can still feel some pain in my groin sometimes,so take my advice!
3, After your pregnancy,eat clean food with more good fats,low to medium fast carbohydrates and low fat proteins
Eat more food because you will burn about 500 calories extra from breast feeding per day!
4, After pregnancy,Take your walks, this will activate your muscles and help with blood flow to your muscles so the nutrition easier can reach to your muscles
5, After pregnancy, you can start very slow only with your body weight after 2 weeks and do some butt and leg exercises and take it slow, do not rush and do not train to hard,only train to activate your gluteus and legs a bit
and do it 2 times per week the first month,after that you can add more weights and train a bit harder,but you should ALWAYS listen to your body, we are all different and we recover differently too
