Some people love beautiful faces, some people adore beautiful figures, while others...others just pay more attention to one’s sexy butts. But do you really know about butts? This post, starring the butts, will tell you their thrilling stories.
Butts may be the most ignored part of your body. If you don’t have diarrhea, you may never think of the existence of your bottoms. But in fact, they are the strongest part of your body. Consisting of gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus along with many other smaller, supporting muscles, our butts help us stand, walk, run, and support us when we sit.
However, humans just hate moving. We sit in front of our desktop doing work, sit in our sofa watching TV, and sit in our bed playing with our iPhone. As a result, the butts meet their greatest enemy — high pressure.
Prolonged sitting threatens your health
Sitting for a long time harms your bone
When you sit, most of the body's weight is placed on the buttocks. This causes the pelvis to rotate backward and puts pressure on the lumbar discs. This position forces the head forward and causes the shoulders to curve to compensate for the weight. See? Your butts can’t complain, but they take revenge through another form.
Sitting for a long time may lead to hemorrhoids
Sitting for a long time can increase the pressure on the butts, blocking the venous return (blood flowing back to the heart) near the anus, which may lead to hemorrhoids over time.
Sitting for a long time leads to dark butts
It's stuffy and sweaty inside your underwear. The tight environment prevents the butt from breathing. When you sit for too long, your body will create cuticles to reduce the pressure on the skin. Then, the skin in your butts can turn darker.
Sitting for a long time leads to muscle atrophy
All butts are born white and tender. Sitting a long time will lead to muscle atrophy and build-up of fat. Under the dual effects of gravity and obesity, the overwhelmed butt can even have a double chin. In addition, your body is at risk of injury without strong legs and muscles to stabilize you.
Want to save your butts? It's time to give them a new life! Here are some tips to help you.
Tip 1 DO NOT sit for a long time
Try to take a break from sitting every 30 minutes. Go to get a glass of water, or just walk around the room. You can also try a standing desk in your office. When you are at home, stand when you talk on the phone or watch TV.
Tip 2 Maintain a breathable environment
This is simple, and anyone can do it. Just change your underpants regularly and wear breathable pants.
Tip 3 Take exercise
Hip Bridge — Lie on your back. Bend your knees and lift your hips up while squeezing your glutes until your body forms a straight line from knees to head. Keep your heels under your knees, not too far forward or backward. That's 1 rep, do 12.
Donkey Kicks — Lift one heel up towards the ceiling while keeping your knee bent. Don’t arch your back to lift your leg up. Remember, it’s not about lifting your foot as high as possible. Do 12. Then, repeat with the other leg.
Have you learned your lesson? If so, now it’s time to stand up and save your butt cheeks!
