Gar­den­ing LIFTS THE TUSH

First For Women - - Health -

Spend­ing a day tend­ing to your gar­den is a great way to get a perky, sculpted back­side. That’s be­cause squat­ting to plant seeds and water flow­ers ac­ti­vates the calo­rie-hun­gry ham­strings and glu­teus max­imus.

These mus­cles work dou­ble-duty to shape and lift the rear.

TO TONE EVEN FASTER: “Draw your belly but­ton in and squeeze your shoul­der blades to­gether as you’re plant­ing,” says May. This helps take strain off the spine to elim­i­nate next­day back pain, plus ac­ti­vates the rec­tus ab­do­mi­nis to melt a menopot.
