    Default suhaila's buns fitness dvd

    okay, I got it and I have done it only once.

    how in the world do I "pulse" my booty like that? the only time I can do it is lying on my stomach. when I tried it I felt like I was using more leg that booty and I didn't feel them individually lift at all.

    any ideas ladies.

    really frustrating. seems like my booty muscles are so out of touch or something.

    I would DEEPLY appreciate some help with this one.

    thanx.

    A few years after starting belly dance , I had a chance to have a full body assessment by a physio. One (of the many) areas that needed work was my glutes. Didn't use them - I tend to use my thighs for moving my legs - and I had no control over them. The trick they taught me was to use a pencil and poke the middle of the muscle. Initially I had to be lying prone to do it; later I worked up to standing and eventually didn't need teh pencil at all

    can a finger be used instead, just poking the middle of each bun?

    Would this topic be better in Beauty and Fitness?

    If your glutes aren't firing, you might want to consider strengthening them beore starting Suhaila- sounds contradictory but it helps if you have some bum strength before you try and isolate those muscles.

    You will actually die laughing at this video, but it's really helped me. Just try not to let the tight lycra distract you (Edit- he syas there is a 'warm up' but I'd suggest warming up before the warm up)

    We do this in class sitting up on the floor legs spread apart. If you have problems isolating bend foward a bit. It takes about 6 months to a year before you can really see it. Concentrate more on the feeling of the squeeze. The muscles will eventually catch up.

    We do them in class the same way Crazy Cat Lady does, but we're also advised to do other glute strengthening exercises at home. And pressing the muscle with a finger really helps me to figure out what I'm supposed to be moving!
    It took ages for me to feel like anything was happening at all but my glutes are getting stronger now I'm practising regularly.
