Follow for dat ass
That AssI fixed it!If you’re expecting to build “that ass” by squatting with just your body weight, think again.
I’m sorry (◡‿◡✿)
Did you not read the part where it stood “you can use this exercise using only your body weight, or with extra weight in either a backpack, dumbbells or barbell.
Read the fucking thing before you “fix it”.
And have you ever tried a pistol squat, hard as fuck?
Admittedly, I did not read the part about adding weight. And yes, I agree without a shadow of a doubt that pistol squats are hard as fuck. I don’t think I’d be able to get as low as the girl is in the picture. And that’s the problem. They are a difficult movement to master and many won’t get the benefit from them unless they have a lot of hip/glute/and hamstring flexibility. But My issue with infographics like these are the gender roles.
Have you ever seen something like this geared towards men? With nice fonts and bright colours? Probably not. I have been working in gyms for 3 years and have yet to see a single guy do a donkey kick or a bridge (unless it’s with a barbell). Things like this promote the idea that women and men must behave and exercise differently at the gym Men do the tough stuff: lifting heavy and hard, while women do smaller, accessory movements with little to no weights to stay “lean and petite” so that their “strong and huge” male counterparts can provide for them and protect them.
I understand that most women are not training for a lot of hypertrophy or extensive strength gains, but I am not a fan of promoting the idea that women can’t lift like men. A great ass comes from lots of hard work. A mix of high weight, low volume lifts like deadlifts and squats, with some high volume, lowER weight accessory work like leg extensions, etc etc. You wont be able to get “that ass” by just doing bodyweight alone.
Well, I’m glad we got that sorted out. And I agree fully, too few women/girls lift and do lifts like deadlifts, squats, goodmornings and similar.
But at the time I made this my followers were girls at the age of 14-18 who are into pilates and running, therefore I wanted to make them aware of more exercises that can be done both with weights and alone.
I simply found a target group and made something for them :)
