One of the things NPC judges look during a competition is your butt. n ” And believe me, I have to really, really, really work my butt in order to get it into competition shape.
It’s definitely not something that comes naturally — especially when you are over 40 and fighting old-lady butt. I swear, gravity hates me.
So what do I do? Everything. Really, I am the glute queen at the gym. I do squats, lunges, leg presses, one-legged exercises…if it’s working your glutes, then I’m doing it and I’m doing a lot of it. If I don’t hurt the next day, then I didn’t work hard enough.
Still…I’m not quite at Pro standards…yet.
But I know all that work is paying off, because today I got the most bizarre compliment.
I was at the spa as a pre-training treat and the massage therapist was doing everything he could to break down the muscle tissue. He told me he’s been doing this for over 6 years, and I have the most muscular glutes he’s ever had to work on — and that includes both men and women clients.
Ha! And that was my off-season butt. Just wait until March when I’ll be ready for the next show. Like Barney Stinson from “How I Met Your Mother” says, it’s going to …wait for it…legendary.
