Why yes, yes I do. I have a pancake butt. What is a pancake butt?
The Urban Dictionary defines it as “when one’s butt has absolutely no shape to it at all. Looking very flat, like a pancake.”
My body changed in a lot of different ways as I lost weight. Every week it was a new discovery. Besides my clothes not fitting any more, I suddenly could see ribs, I could see a COLLARBONE! Holy cow! Where did that come from? And my thighs stopped rubbing together.
These changes also meant that I lost weight in places I wasn’t expecting to as well. I lost too many bra sizes to even count (actually I can count–42FF to 34DD) and also my butt shrank!
I read an article recently that said that there are a few reasons for having “pancake butt.” 1) There’s not enough fat accumulation in your butt or 2) Your butt muscles don’t engage so they don’t build up.
Now, how do we fix this problem? Try these tips:
1) Butt Lifts
3) Sprints— great for runners! I’ve recently incorporated sprint intervals into my routine.
4) Side Lunges
Supposedly biking can also improve definition. I’ve recently tried doing sprints and interval training with my running. I do the stair-master at the gym, and I also started doing the Leg Press machines at the gym. Here’s to hoping for some definition!
QUESTION: Do you have any other tips to add?
