What is the best exercise to slim a big butt? I had heard that using stairmaster could make a big behind even bigger. Is this true? What is the best exercise for me?

  • not true about the stairmaster. Running is the best way to shrink the toosh. I also do what is called butt blasters. It is a machine in the weight room where you push back on it using your glutes. There is another really good machine for the lower back that will help with the toosh too. It looks like reverse abs.

  • Walking works just as well as running and is much easier but, you do need to pick up the speed a bit! Not just a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood! lol

  • Running. Cardiovascular. Stairmaster will burn your Quads up!! Try Stiff Leg Dead Lifts, and back extensions

  • yoga and pilates work your core and lengthen your muscles instead of building bulk.
