This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Your flat butt workout

Your droopy butt workout

Your ample butt workout

Whatever your jeans size, most fannies fit into the flat, droopy or ample categories. You can't trade genes with J.Lo, but you can tweak your workout to maximize your caboose's natural gifts, says Pete McCall, an exercise physiologist in San Diego for the American Council on Exercise, who designed this workout. In other words, the right routine can help round out the flat-bottomed, lift up the droopy and slim down the generously proportioned! Read about your rump's go-to moves, then shape a butt you can get behind by doing your plan three times a week.

Is your butt flat?

Stand sideways in front of a mirror. If you say, "What butt?" you belong here.

Your bottom line In flat types, your pelvis may be rotated downward, which can shift much of the work the gluteus maximus muscles handle to your back and hamstring muscles, McCall says. Simply put, your glutes are on an extended vacation and never get the chance to fully develop. Plus, you may have less fat tissue in your fanny, so you miss out on booty bounty.

Is your butt droopy?

Your cheeks hang down and merge with the top of your hamstrings.

Your bottom line For those with lower derrieres, the pelvis may be rotated upward; this means the standard moves don't challenge your gluteus maximus muscles enough to get a rise out of them, literally. If you don't add extra resistance or explosive movement, they just go through the motions, which allows gravity to move in and stake its saggy claim.

Is your butt ample?

You've got plenty to work with, true, but your rear runneth over.

Your bottom line Send a thank-you note to Mom and Dad: An ample backside usually means you build glute muscles without having to try too hard, McCall says. You've got the tools; now make them work for you! Your goal: Get rid of jiggle. Drop extra fat that hides your assets, and firm your glutes and surrounding muscles to carve out a more defined, toned behind.
