HELP! what will work this muscle group?

Postby sheilaxVx » Wed Aug 17, 2011 10:30 pm

i've been out of shape for awhile, but i have this weird indent above my butt Image note the position of the orange arrows.
what can i do to improve muscle tone and get rid of that weird line?

edit: I can't get the link to show the image, but if you click the image and open it in a new window, you can see it.

hey its weird, you post a pic asking about your butt and get no replies :D

i am no expert, but firstly i can hardly notice anything, and secondly, the body just packs fat where it wishes, genetically determined and cant really spot reduce fat...

JP- haha that's what i was thinking. i was hoping at least for some sincere criticism.

the weird thing is that there isn't a lot of fat there, (i had been sick and had surgery so I lost a bunch of weight-which i'm not stoked about).
so it's more like i need muscle there because i can't even pack on fat there if i tried.

Sheila, I can't see the picture but like JP says it's probably something that nobody
but yourself notices. May I recommend some squatting to remind you of the derrière
region's actual purpose (while building spectacular glutes). :D
Maybe do some back extensions too.

I was holding out for more butt pictures to fully diagnose the issue :)

Ok, now that I can see the picture I think it's the area with connective tissue between
glute and thigh muscles that you're talking about. You're supposed to have a little "indent"
there although it's not always visible depending on how the body fat is distributed!

I belived it was without i wanted to be sure - and then i wanted to say that it might be fat there and maybe lower your fat - but your not fat - so im not sure if its good loose more fat

you can work your butt muscles like someone said above - maybe even check what specific muscles can help more

and now after what Linnéa76 said maybe there is a way to strech or something like that the connective tissue i tried to google a bit but i allready spend to much time on this forum so maybe you should read yourself

but i wouldnt try stuff like streching and stuff if your not 100% sure it will help and not harm you - so first try to work the butt muscles maybe also back and abs ? maybe more the medius then mazimus - read about it -

and i wouldnt have noticed if there were orange arrows pointing on it and even if i would i would never think it looks not good if you wouldnt have pointed that out - so maybe leaving it like that is also a good option

nice pic sheilaxVx. but you'd look a lot better w/o the rectangle over your eyes. ;)

and yeah I'd not have noticed anything if you hadn't pointed it out. you look great. but we can never do enough squats now can we?

thanks everyone for being so positive. i guess we tend to over scrutinize ourselves.
i'm going to squat like i've never squat before (that doesn't sound right..) but thanks for the help!
