Ruthie Gets a Booty Call

Dear Ruthie,

Let’s see if you can answer this, Ruthie. Middle-age guy here who needs to firm up his ass. I’m getting that droopy, silky-feeling ass that old guys get, and I hate it. Any tips to firm things up?

—Droopy Drawers


Dear Droopy,

As anyone who has ever seen me in a bikini can attest, I’m not into physical fitness. I don’t work out, stretch, twist, turn, bike, hike, nada. After all, if God wanted me to bend over and touch the floor, he would have put diamonds, cigarettes and little bottles of vodka on the ground. Needless to say, I’m not the girl to answer your question. Happy now? You got me.

That said, I thought I’d reach out to Milwaukee’s booty specialist, Billy Lewis. Fully certified in core conditioning and body sculpting, Billy has been involved in the fitness arena for more than seven years. I asked Billy for his secrets to firming up the tush.

“Squats are an excellent way to improve your gluteus maximus,” says Billy. “Varying the width of your feet will change the emphasis of the exercise; as you move your feet further apart, you’ll feel it in your hips and butt.” Billy also suggests an exercise called Butterfly Bridges. (How cute!) “They’re a great way to tighten and shape your rear, and they can be done anywhere,” he explains. “Laying on your back, press the bottoms of your feet together, bringing your feet close to your bum. Slowly raise your hips, simultaneously bringing your knees together with a squeeze. Lower the hips; opening the knees—simulating butterfly wings.”

The butt expert says that the more you elevate your hips and the closer the heels of your feet are to your keester, you’ll increase the burn. “Give a squeeze at the end of every set for a minimum of 10 seconds,” adds Billy.

When all else fails, talk to a trainer in person. Want to work out with Billy yourself? Want to schedule a consultation? Contact this Cream City fitness pro at billlewis73@hotmail.com!
