A shapely and round butt is highly desired, but it’s no secret that your body changes when you lose weight. 

Some women have slimmed down and have been pleased with the results, all except for the fact that their once round, sexy derriere seems to have gone flat.

This doesn’t have to be your case. You can learn how to lose weight while keeping your butt nice and round.

Dieting and Aerobics Help You Lose Weight, but Keeping a Round Butt Requires More

Many women who want to lose weight place more focus on dieting and doing aerobics, mostly neglecting strength training moves, if they do them at all.

This approach might lead to weight loss, but it won’t do much for your round butt.

It will just come off with everything else, which is what many women do not want.

And why does it come off? There has been nothing at all in the weight loss program to maintain the butt’s shape.

The thought that strength training is only for men is something women need to get over.

It’s the only thing that’s going to save your round butt.

Exercises to Lose Weight and Still Keep a Round Butt

Now that it’s been well-established that you must do some weight lifting, it’s time to take a look at the moves to make sure you keep your sexy round butt.

The first exercise recommended is the deadlift.

This move might prove a little tricky to master, as your form has to be just right, but it well worth it.

The second exercise is the weighted squat.

This exercise tones your entire lower body, building the muscle mass in the glutes needed to maintain your round butt.

Next up is the weighted (and I mean very weighted with dumbbells) walking lunge (depicted below).

Finally, do one-leg presses on a floor-leg press machine, with the foot placed high on the sled.


You don’t have to stay fat just to have a round butt. And you don’t have to sacrifice your well-endowed rear-end just to lose weight.
