Fallen Butt

My butt seems to have dropped in recent past. I am wondering if its because I have not done a FIRM tall box workout in a while or because of age.

It all started when I noticed I could not keep my uniform pants up, they seem to always fall down a little. Kind of like Jillian always yanking up her workout pants.

In the mirror this morning I noticed a 'drop' in the roundness that I use to have. Bummer.

What is your experience. I am 56. To those of you who do the FIRM is this your butt lifter or does something else to it for you.

'It's fallen and can't get up' seems to apply to me now.

The fanny lifter from the FIRM never lifted my butt like Brazil Butt Lift did for me. I truly believe that old fashioned (get on all fours) floorwork is superior for lifting the butt and getting that roundness. The only way (for me) to lift the butt with squats is to hold like 20lb. dumbells in each hand. Otherwise floor work and fire hydrants are the way to go. I am a true pancake butt so I know what works.

The fanny lifter worked extremely well for me, based on a couple guys' flattering comments when I began regularly Firming in the late 90's .... Of course, I was 15 years younger and 10+ pounds lighter then, too.

Kettlebell swings are famous for producing butt lifts. I try not to look at my own rear much, so I can't tell you if kettlebell swings made any difference to mine. However, within 2 months of starting kettlebell training, someone I know very well went from having a slight middle-aged sag in that part of the anatomy to suddenly having the perky, stand-to-attention buttocks of a 20-year-old. Something about kettlebell training did that, and I imagine it was the swings?

Swings. I am now re-incorporating them in on an almost daily basis. I already notice some results. I'm no spring chicken either

I seem to have some kind of recurring saggy glute syndrome. Something will work for a while then I notice flattening and drooping.

Floorwork did the job, then pooped out on me. Same with step. I seem to need to rotate different modes of attack for sustained results.

Both my parents' respective behinds seem to have completely atrophied. I fear for my future!

Squats with heavier weights did it for me. It's something when YOU notice your own rear end in the mirror. I did laundry at a laundry mat this week. Next to it is a mirrored building and bringing in the clothes I just glanced at it and noticed my butt is nice and round! Stunned I passed by again and noticed the booty. I think I did five miles walking back and forth by that place lol. It finally hit me that I was there to do my clothes and not check out my butt. I have been doing KCM leg work such as bootcamp and splits. I truly believed she did it for me. I have never noticed and admired my hinny like this before. Did I mention that I love KCM?

This made me laugh out loud, I want perky, stand-to-attention buttocks! I have all the tools, kettlebells, floor work and tall box!

This. I could've written this whole thing. My nickname from my youngest sister is Pancake ***.

Thank you. A lot of good suggestions. I have been doing a lot of Powerfit and Ellen. I will hate to give up Ellen because her workouts feel so good and I do Powerfit to get back into workouts after being gone.

As many have said changing things up seems to be the way to go. I will try to add in swings each day.

I was doing squats, lunges and tall box (Jari, Jillian, FIRM) and burning out on them. I wanted something more gentle. I guess my body is telling me to 'get back to work'

This is where a magic wand would come in handy. Anyone have one for trade?????????

Hmm. I've always had a round butt. It's currently too big but always high and round. Just recently I noticed it's looking somewhat flatter and wider -- *not* my usual look. I haven't exercised for the past week but I'd also been going gentler/easier and think all that Ellen I've been doing hasn't helped it. I gave up lunges but think I'd better get back to squats and deadlifts at the minimum.
