Do you want to know how to get rid of hip dips? Are you looking for hip dip exercises that really work?
Do you feel like your hips dip make your butt look square instead of round and bubbly?
If so, you are in the right place! Today’s episode of CCtv is all about hip dips. In it I share the best hip dip exercises and info about how to do them in a complete hip dip workout for you!
Hip dips are the indents that happen on your hips, on the outermost part of the butt.
What are hip dips?
Hip dips are normal but some people can have more of a dip than others. People without naturally curvy hips, tend to deposit fat, which covers the dip.
Others with more of a rectangular body shape, don’t store fat in the hip area, creating the appearance of a dent in the hip area.
How to Get Rid of Hip Dips
To get rid of hip dips, you have to build muscle in the hip area. Doing hip exercises consistently will build the muscle and fill in the dips.
Because your hip muscles attach to your hip joint in different directions, it’s best to do exercises that use multi-directional movements. That way you can target and build up all of the muscles in the hip dip area.
HINT: That’s what all of the hip exercises in this workout do and why it works so well!

HOW TO DO THIS HIP WORKOUT
To build muscle you have to lift heavy and do 6 to 8 reps. But for these hip exercises, it’s very difficult to use heavy weights without increasing the risk of injury. That’s why it’s best to do a lot of reps and sets instead.
- Do each hip dip exercises 30 times each to complete one full round, or set.
- Do 4 full rounds – or sets – of all of the exercises to complete the workout.
- For the best results, do hip dip exercises 2 times a week.
- To add more intensity you can use ankle weights or resistance bands.
- TIP: For the best possible results, follow a meal plan and complete full body training program.
