6 Exercises for a Rounder Butt


It could be a great thing if you got a bigger backside. According to Oxford University, women who have bigger thighs and rounded butt suffer less from diabetes, heart-related diseases, and obesity.

In the International Journal of Obesity, the researchers from Oxford University wrote:

 “The protective properties of the lower-body fat depot have been confirmed in many studies conducted in subjects with a wide range of age, BMI and co-morbidities.”

As the study also showed, women who have a prodigious butt are associated with higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, which stimulate the function of the brain. Furthermore, they are associated with a hormone that regulates hunger called leptin.
