Heart Butt Challenge – Overview
Because fascia is the main sensory organ and communication system, it’s essential for the mind-body connection to every muscle – including the glutes. Fascia can also bind the skin to the muscles, fat, and other structures which can prevent full access to blood flow, nerves, and muscles which can slow down progress on your Heart Butt.
Heat and oil up, then use the FaceBlaster™ for a few minutes of light blasting. Then use the larger claws of the Mini1™, Mini2™, or FasciaBlaster® to blast the love handles, “high butt”, low sides, and glute-hamstring tie-in. You’ll also want to add in some full-body FasciaBlasting sessions.
>Step 1: Heat
You can read pages 138-143 from my bestselling book “The Cellulite Myth” for more information on heating the tissue both internally and externally and the science behind it!
Step 2: Oil up and prep the tissue with a few minutes of light, brisk FasciaBlasting
If you have the FaceBlaster™, this is the perfect tool to start out with.
You can use the techniques in this playlist:
If you can lightly FasciaBlast without pain or sensitivity and you see the skin turning red, you can move on to FasciaBlasting with the larger claws.
>Step 3: Use the FasciaBlaster, Mini1, or Mini2
After a few minutes of lighter FasciaBlasting, you can use the larger claws to FasciaBlast the following areas:
>Heart Butt Blasting Zones:
- Love Handles
- High Butt
- Low Sides
- The Glute-Hamstring Tie-In
- Full-body FasciaBlasting
>Intro to the Heart Butt FasciaBlasting tutorials:
>FasciaBlast Each Zone for 1-3 Minutes (total of 12-20 minutes on each side):
1. Love Handles
>2. What I call “High Butt” or “Square Butt”
>3. Low Sides
>4. The Glute-Hamstring Tie-In
>5. Full-body FasciaBlasting
You can mix in some full-body FasciaBlasting sessions as needed.
Step 4: Recovery
After FasciaBlasting, we recommend “flushing”, which is simply a light, brisk up and down stroke. You can use the FaceBlaster to lightly blast the areas you just massaged, or you can use your hands to help flush the whole extremity.
The After Blaster Cream is perfect for flushing.
Don’t forget to do the Heart Butt exercises at least 2 times per week.
