Peachgainz Founder Frankie Alvarado's Tips For Building A Better Booty Without Going To The Gym - Exclusive

Do you want the perfect butt but can't afford a gym membership? Well, good news — certified trainer Frankie Alvarado doesn't think you need gym access to build a nice booty. In fact, he has created a 12-week booty series that can be completely done at home. Alvarado's program, called Peachgainz, has fully transformed many of his clients, including celebrities like Sarah Hyland from "Modern Family," GUESS model Estrella Nouri, and fashion model Jessica Nazarenus.

Alvarado is a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified trainer and has quickly become famous on TikTok. His videos help women learn how to lean out and build a bodacious booty. In an exclusive interview with Health Digest, he shared with us his tips for sculpting a better booty without stepping foot in a gym, as well as the secrets of booty bands and the top booty-enhancing workout products you shouldn't go without.

Skip the gym

If you don't have access to a gym, or if you would simply prefer to work out at home, Frankie Alvarado says you can do it the Peachgainz way. He recommends getting a few workout tools, like a fabric booty band, ankle straps, and some sort of weights. You might be wondering — what is a booty band? According to Alvarado, "Booty bands are very effective — they are resistant bands that do just as much work as weights can. Whether you're using weights or a band, it's all resistance." Resistance training helps build muscle strength and tone by making your muscles work harder, pushing against the resistance. It can also help with managing your weight and increasing your muscle-to-fat ratio (via Better Health Channel). 

Alvarado added, "[Booty bands] can add additional resistance to natural movements like squats, lunges, slides, and kicks. But most importantly, they can be used to activate your glutes pre-workout and [provide] glute isolation. They are great for targeting your core and lower body." If you're on a budget, he recommends not skimping on your booty workout essentials — make sure you have at least a fabric booty band and a set of dumbbells. 

The bigger butt secret

So what are some of the best glute exercises you can practice at home? Frankie Alvarado recommends single-leg hip thrusters (as well as barbell hip thrusters), donkey kickbacks, glute bridges, glute ham raises, and kneeling thrusters. If you can do some of these with your booty band and dumbbells, even better. Alvarado's three simple steps for success include practicing glute isolation exercises three times per week, eating your calories and protein, and gradually increasing the weight, frequency, or number of repetitions in your strength training routine. Most importantly, he says, you should stay consistent with your workouts.

If your goal is to build a beautiful butt, keep in mind you don't need both weightlifting and cardio in your workout routine. Alvarado says weightlifting helps build muscle, but "cardio is strictly to burn calories. Therefore, someone who is struggling to gain weight should not have cardio anywhere in their routine, where someone trying to lose weight should implement cardio into their routine to burn calories to help keep themselves in a caloric deficit. You do not need cardio to build a booty — I tell my clients to stay away from it, because my ideal client is looking to gain weight and build a booty."
