Wel­come

Women's Health (UK) - - WELCOME -

So, full dis­clo­sure: I’m not happy with the size of my bum. Look­ing back, my whole adult life has been ded­i­cated to shrink­ing my gen­er­ously pro­por­tioned bot­tom. But all that hard work has been in vain and my der­rière re­mains, well, less than dainty. But I shouldn’t be too hard on my arse. It’s got me through marathons and triathlons, plus it helps me squat and dead­lift weights even the fittest male gym-go­ers would be proud of. All of which has helped me reach a con­clu­sion: this self-im­posed butt sham­ing stops now. I’m go­ing to cel­e­brate my size­able be­hind. And it all starts with this is­sue of Women’s Health, which we’ve ded­i­cated to the bum. What­ever size or shape yours is, we ask you to cel­e­brate it. When we de­cided to cre­ate our first ever Butt Is­sue, there was only one woman we could en­vis­age on the cover – the orig­i­nal #fit­spo su­per­star and owner of the most glo­ri­ous arse on In­sta­gram: Jen Selter. New Yorker Jen, who flew to London es­pe­cially for our shoot, has a com­bined au­di­ence of 33 mil­lion on so­cial me­dia (that’s just 1.5 mil­lion fewer than Don­ald Trump’s Twit­ter/in­sta­gram to­tal) and gains 8,000 fol­low­ers a day, with her posts at­tract­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of com­ments and likes. So, yes, she de­serves the ti­tle of Queen of the In­flu­encers. And be­fore you ask: yes, her ass is all real. I should know; I saw it in the flesh. It wig­gles and jig­gles in all the right places, yet it is per­fectly pert in ev­ery way. She shares her three killer moves for a sculpted butt on page 37. If you’re af­ter a more com­pre­hen­sive work­out for your rear, the team at Frame have cre­ated the ul­ti­mate plan for a perky pos­te­rior. We’re not talk­ing about shrink­ing your bum – I love mine now, af­ter all. This four-week work­out is de­signed to lift and de­fine your cheeks to per­fec­tion, what­ever its size. Okay, enough about bums. There’s lots of other stuff in this is­sue to get your teeth into. Been eat­ing your spinach raw? More fool you, ac­cord­ing to our fea­ture on page 41. And check out our es­sen­tial guide to se­lect­ing your new sig­na­ture sum­mer scent on page 89. Can’t guar­an­tee it’ll be sunny; can guar­an­tee you’ll smell good enough to eat. Oh, and have you booked your ticket for our Fit Night Out event in London this Oc­to­ber? Half the tick­ets are al­ready gone, so act quickly or you’ll miss out on the well­ness event of the year (see page 123).
