- Posted on
Are you ready to get fit, toned, and thick in all the right places for the new year? I thought so! I know I am!? Below, you will find the ultimate get fit and thick workouts guide!
I have always had a big bum and a bubble butt, and when I was younger I was often teased for that. I was sooooooo thin everywhere but my butt! My waist was also SOOOO tiny! Gosh, I sure wish I grew up in this time because my body would have been sooo ‘in‘… (rolling my eyes and NO I am not being serious!!!).
It used to be that females were so afraid to gain any kind of weight whether it be body fat weight or muscle mass weight. However, nowadays, that is changing and I am so happy about it!
Women are realizing they LOVE their curves and love their bodies how they are, which makes me unbelievably HAPPY!! Curves are GOOD and so is being HEALTHY. Not just healthy looking but healthy FEELING. The hourglass figure is coming back!
Don’t Always Believe Social Media, Okay?
Social media can be sooooo damn fake and our young girls (and boys!) think that is how their bodies are supposed to look! Heck NO! MOST of the images (and videos now, thanks AI!!!!!!) are not without a filter, nip and tuck! And? SOME of those videos are not even of real women!!! Yep, they are AI-generated VIDEOS…
Seriously, they are not real more than half the time!! Never ever, believe what you see online. Just don’t. Okay?? Your body is PERFECT exactly how it is! You are beautiful!!!!!

Using Ankle Weights
I LOVE using ankle weights when I do my side leg and out thigh, and Get Fit and Thick Workouts. Ankle weights really help to tone up and build nice, lean muscle to your thighs, inner thighs, underbutt, and saddlebag areas! I have 3-pound ankle weights, 5 lbs, and even 8 lbs!!
You can also put on the ankle weights and go on a walk, or just go about your daily business! I highly encourage you to use ankle weights if you haven’t before! They are great!

Standing Abductions: Stand straight and lift one leg out to the side while wearing ankle weights.
Standing Leg Extensions: Stand straight and lift one leg forward while wearing ankle weights.

More Effective Get Fit and Thick Workouts For Your Whole Body
You can try the following exercises to work out your whole body at home to build up muscles, tone you up, (and fill you in) in all the right places!
These exercises are great for building a flat stomach (hello plank!), building upper body strength, or lower body strength. Physical activity is good, so try to keep active daily and you will be on the right path to a healthier body. stronger,
Burpees: Start standing, drop into a squat position, kick your feet back into a push-up position, do a push-up, and then jump back to a squat position. Yes, these suck really bad and I hate them but they work well with gaining strength and building stamina! If you are into that sort of workout then I recommend starting out doing only 5-10 burpees at a time.
Mountain Climbers: Get into a push-up position and alternate bringing your knees to your chest as if you are climbing a mountain. I don’t like these very much so I don’t do a whole lot of them. But I recommend doing 10 mountain climbers at a time if you are just starting out.
Plank: Get into a push-up position and hold your body in a straight line from head to heels. Clench all your muscles and feel them working. Start at 20-second holds and go up from there.
Jump Squats: Start in a squat position and then jump up explosively. Do this 10 times!
Push-Ups: Get into a plank position and lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor, then push back up. Do this 10 times (or as many times as you can at first). Then rest, and repeat 2 more times. Go as hard or easy as you want.
Lunges: Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. Then do the other leg. Try to do this 5 times on each leg and add more reps as you get stronger. Hold onto dumbbells as you get stronger and can do more!
