Flat rear? Bryan Hawn turned his body into a science experiment so he could show you how to create the perfect derrière.
Contrary to popular belief, the bubble butt is not just about size but also about shape. Projecting outwards from the lower back, it usually complements an extremely worked out body. A perfect bubble butt sits high, tight, and is extremely firm. According to women, it’s the second part of the body looked at when checking out men after a well developed chest. However, the qualities that make a buttocks beautiful or well-formed are not fixed, as sexual aesthetics of the buttocks vary considerably from culture to culture, from one period of fashion to another and even from person to person. But it’s clear today, that the bubble butt is in vogue and men are focusing much more attention on developing their glutes than they were even a decade ago: Most men neglect their lower bodies but for me developing my legs and ass had lead to an incredible career on YouTube, amassing more than a million followers on social media.
The bubble butt has become the focus of fashion for both men and women, influences style and launching worldwide dance anthems such as “Booty” by J.Lo, “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj and “Baby Got Back” by Sir MixALot. It has not only branded performance artists but also, Hollywood stars from Kim Kardashian to the guys from the “Magic Mike” films and holds the power to immediately grab the attention of worldwide booty enthusiasts.
As a young boy, I dreamed of having a muscular physique. I bought t-shirts and jeans one size too small, hoping that they would cling to my body and enhance the little muscles that I had developed. But all this did was draw more attention to the beanpole physique that I clearly had standing at 6’1″, hoping and praying for the day the scale would hit 150 pounds. I was fascinated with muscle and fitness magazines and fantasized about slabs of muscle bulging out of my clothes: a rock solid chest, big biceps and forearms and muscular legs. But more than anything, I wanted that perfect round, tight, bubble butt that was so entrancing as it moved in a pair of jeans.
When I was twenty three years old, I began working out with a professional bodybuilder who taught me the science of how to transform my body. I was always a hard worker, I just needed someone to show me the path. I began to train and reconstruct my body, tearing it down in the gym and giving it the right supplementation to come back bigger and stronger. I became like a heat seeking missile. I had a goal and I did not take my eye off the prize. I knew that I was starting at a disadvantage because I wasn’t genetically gifted and was building my body from scratch. Most of the guys in the gym were much bigger and had more muscular development to begin with. I needed to work twice as hard and have twice as much focus. There was no room for error; there was no time for mistakes. Come hell or high-water, I was going to achieve that bubble butt.
My body became a virtual science experiment. I kept track of the exercises when I became the most sore, which part of the muscle was engaging, and which section of muscle tissue was building. I knew the body responded to the language of survival. The exercises that were the most painful, that put my body through the most stress were naturally the ones creating the most change. As I stacked more weight on to the machine, I would try to be a robot, forgetting that I was human, as tears of pain streamed down my face. It was an all out fight against my own body, and in order for it to grow, it had to hit muscle failure.
My research led me to some eye opening conclusions, especially in regards to glute training. I realized that training legs and training glutes are very different paths. It’s easy for the hamstrings and quads to take over most of the resistance in leg exercises, so building a bubble butt required very specific form forcing the glute muscles to be responsible for the motion. As I watched other gym fanatics, I quickly noticed that no one else had harnessed this technique. It wasn’t long before my ass became a standout. I knew exactly how to engage each specific part of my glute muscles, and in a gym full of guys with big legs, only one had a butt that shelved outwards from the lower back and curved perfectly into the hamstring. My confidence was beginning to rise and for the first time I wasn’t hating my body.
Yes, I realized I had attained something that very few people had, but more importantly, I realized I had an opportunity to help others that shared my same story: a scrawny kid who thought that a muscular physique was just not in the cards. Knowing where I came from, gave me a very strong passion to take this information public. I didn’t want others to go through what I had experienced for so many years. Hours in the gym doing exercises that were not effective and taking supplements that didn’t work. So, I wrote my first book, “THE LIST (What the Top Fitness Models Don’t Want You to Know). By this time, I had been booked for a national underwear campaign for Play Underwear and was named the original iboxer model. This was a brand of boxers that had a pouch specifically designed for your ipod. The campaign showcased my physique on billboards in Los Angeles, phone kiosks in New York City, and on underwear boxes in department stores all across America.
My fitness success, specifically my assets, soon became the catalyst for a YouTube channel that commanded the attention of millions of viewers all over the world. The most joy came not from the attention, but that the information that changed my life was reaching so many people. “THE LIST” soon topped the diet and health charts becoming one of the most successful self published health and fitness books on the market. “THE LIST” features the three best exercises for a perfect ass including one I invented myself.
One of the most eye catching parts of the physique for both men and women is the ass. It’s a prominent feature that can make or break someone’s interest and sets the tone for the entire curvature of the body. Science has proven that certain dimensions and proportions can create a stronger attraction. Without an ass that pops, one is left with a roadblock to creating a body that stands out in the crowd.
In today’s fitness world, only developing upper body strength just isn’t enough. Athletes, trainers and the average Joe are much more butt focused. If I can build mine from scratch, then there’s hope for every guy (and girl) out there. From my experience even the flattest backside can be transformed into a glorious bubble.
