THE PRE­SCRIP­TION

Elle (Canada) - - Body -

The 12-week butt-lift­ing, fat-shred­ding plan is based on pro­to­cols from a study con­ducted by UCLA and Equinox that eval­u­ated the Equinox per­son­al­train­ing method for in­creas­ing lean body mass. It’s di­vided into three four-week phases; each phase in­cludes three one-hour re­sis­tance-train­ing work­outs a week, which vary in in­ten­sity and weight. The first phase fo­cuses on cor­rect­ing er­rors in ba­sic move­ments (e.g., lean­ing too far for­ward dur­ing squats). The sec­ond phase con­sists of com­plex and tech­ni­cal ex­er­cises, such as wide-legged “sumo” dead lifts. The fi­nal phase fea­tures pow­er­ful move­ments—from box jumps to ket­tle­bell swings—aimed at lift­ing the back­side and strength­en­ing the en­tire body.
