Ask any man or woman what they remember most about the recent Royal Wedding, and they are likely to say, “Pippa Middleton’s beautiful behind, of course!” Now everyone is trying to get a bum like Pippa, because they know a firm butt makes you the center of attention.
If your bum is drooping and sagging, then you’ll be glad to know there are exercises to firm and tone your rear end. A tighter and firmer bottom will give you more self-confidence and men will definitely begin to notice you. You can get an arse like Pippa if you are willing to work at it.
How does Pippa tone her bum? There are several butt exercises to help firm up the thighs and derriere. Keep in mind that it’s also important to follow a Pippa Middleton diet which means eating healthy foods that are low in calories. That way it will be easier to burn fat off your butt and thighs when exercising.
For squats, do 3 sets of 8 reps, three times weekly. Eventually you should be able to squat while holding a bar across your shoulders, and you can add weight as your glutes and thighs become stronger.
Do at least 3 sets of 10 repetitions, holding each squeeze for a count of three. Rest for two minutes between sets. You can do butt squeezes for a firmer rear end several times a week.
If you want a pert bum like Pippa, then you will need to start by improving the shape and firmness of your rear end. If you can continue to do butt exercises for several months, you will gradually lose weight in your rear and thighs.

Pippa and her mother Carole are reportedly following the Dukan Diet Plan, a personalized weight-loss program that helps people redesign their eating habits so they they never gain weight again. The Dukan Diet by was created by Dr. Pierre Dukan as a regimented way to help people lose weight.
Since being introduced in France in 2000, the Dukan Diet has been that country’s most popular diet.The Dukan Diet begins by asking clients to set a goal for their “real weight.” This should be a realistic goal that can be achieve and maintained for the rest of one’s life.
The Dukan diet is not about losing weight fast. Rather, it’s about losing the weight and then maintaining it for the long-term, thereby avoiding the dreaded “diet rebound.”
The best thing about the Dukan diet is that it is tailored for each person’s particular needs. The four phases of the diet are flexible enough to allow for different body types and different metabolisms, yet it claims to deliver successful weight loss for all.
