Mon petites, what can I say this season it's all about a floral print and a firm derrière! What's even better is when you can combine the two and we here at LPB have the perfect combination that will have you in the latest trends, hautest wears and added bonus an immaculate gluteus maximus!
Now we all haven't been blessed with a shapely Brazilian posterior like those dames strutting on the runway - bless you Gisele! That doesn't mean we can't attain one with hard work (and a stellar workout look). In comes fitness aficionado Tadeo, Brazilian soccer player export and A-list celebrity trainer (Kerry Washington and Jesse Metcalfe, etc.) has the perfect routine that will revamp your caboose in no time flat - no pun intended. Tadeo's signature 'Cuerpaso' workout routine specializes in giving women a sculpted toned posterior - the natural way! Here the Maven of Derrières shares his ingenious routine with us.
