How to Get Bigger Hips – What Actually Works

14099657_330369873974278_1784123191_nThe hourglass figure is something that most men prefer in a woman. It represents a strong symbol of feminine beauty as well as a healthy representation of good genes.  Famous celebrities like Nikki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, and Sofia Vergera are among a few boasting one of these sexy curvacious figures.

And due to all of the above, more and more women around the world are trying achieve a sexier look by getting wider hips to sculpt out that hourglass figure they desire.

Now Increasing your hip size is not the easiest muscle on your body to enhance. But it can be done, and it is definitely worth it.

Hip-Enhancing Exercises

The main muscles of the hips are the gluteus maximus, minimus, medius and the tensor fascia latae. These are the muscles that we will primarily want to work.

I want to say that you do not want to neglect on the big and main exercises, like the squat, lunge, etc. These types of exercises are what target the most muscle groups at a time. And these will be the best for toning, sculpting, and popping your overall lower body curves (hips, thighs, butt).

But I have already discussed that above, so now I will be going over some great hip building exercises below that you can use as well, as they are specifically targeted for widening the hips.

1) Side Lying Hip Abduction

Since we are focused on growth, we want to do the exercise relaxing a dumbell on the leg we will be lifting into the air. You should do each rep with your leg and hips lower than in this video, as to avoid over-stretching and injury when weight is applied.

2) Standing Side Abduction

This is same as a side lying hip abduction, except its from a standing position. Simply hold onto a wall and grab a dumbbell. Allow the dumbbell to relax against your outer thigh and raise that leg. Keep your back straight, and upright while doing this. As you cans see by the picture this can also be done via a resistance band for making your hips wider.

3) Sumo Walk for Hips

Recommend doing these at the ankle level, or whatever you prefer. Be sure to keep an ever so slight bend in the knees throughout the entire exercise to reduce unneeded strain and recruit more glute activation.

4) Side Lunge:

When these start to get too easy, there is an alternative way to perform these to avoid less stress on the knees while using a weighted barbell. Another great option for your making your hips look wider.
