Shape Your Tush With Tips From Booty Master David Kirsch

Celebrity trainer David Kirsch's tips are all about the backside in his aptly titled upcoming book, Butt Book. Supermodel Karolina Kurkova was so impressed with Kirsch's ability to shape her booty that she affectionately calls him "Master of the Ass." High praise from someone whose job is looking hot in little clothing.

While promoting his book, the master shared some of his sculpting tips with Shape and suggests doing a variety of moves, like sumo lunges, platypus walk, and plié squats. To see what he recommends for people who worry about their quadriceps becoming bulky while strengthening and shaping their booty,


Kirsch told Shape that anyone worried about bulking up their quads should stay away from traditional squats and explained,

They're going to [want] do a wide-stance squat or a plié squat, which is second position dance, opening up your legs and bringing the focus to the inner thighs and not to the quads. Don't use excessive weight and keep repetitions high. I use body weight or a medicine ball or light hand weights.

There you have it, from the master himself. Would you buy his book that's all about achieving your ideal booty?

I like my butt okay now, but I'd love it if it were a bit rounder and higher. I'd give this book a shot if it really gave results.

i bought "the butt book" by Tosca Reno ( a female body builder and author of the book "Eat Clean") a couple of years ago. i'm not a body builder and its really many basic exercises but it opened my eyes to the magic of dead lifts, good mornings and doing pelvic thrusts using a weighted plate on your lower abs. i'll take a look at this and THEN decide whether to plunk down my cash or not.
