Today though we are going to go over what hip dips are, if you can get rid of them, and exercises to help minimize your hip dips.
What Are Hip Dips?
Hip Dips are the inward curves of your hips, right above the thighs and right below the hip bone.
Hip dips are a totally normal part of your anatomy and depending on your hip shape, muscle definition, and body fat will determine how much your hip dips will show.
Having hip dips that show more or less isn’t a sign of being healthy or not, it’s mainly based on your bone structure.
Can You Get Rid of Hip Dips?
Good news! You can minimize the appearance of your hip dips, but again based on your bone structure you may not completely make them go away.
Just learn to love your body and keep it healthy as best as you can!
It’s impossible to target one specific muscle, but you can target a group of muscles to reach your desired look.
You can’t just target your hip dips alone. As you target your hip dips a lot of other muscles will work to stabilize the movement such as: abductors (side butt and quad) and lower back.
Another great way to lessen the appearance of your hip dips will be to lower your body fat percentage. You of course do this by working out and eating healthier foods.
I love the 80/20 rule and live by this on a daily.
“The 80/20 rule is a guide for your everyday diet—eat nutritious foods 80 percent of the time and have a serving of your favorite treat with the other 20 percent. For the “80 percent” part of the plan, focus on drinking lots of water and eating nutritious foods that include: Whole grains. Fruits and vegetables.” (Source)
