These 8 Butt Exercises are Better than Squats

By  | 


There are many things that a woman can have to make her more attractive in men’s eyes. Round buttocks is usually one of them. 

For shaping your behind, I have 8 of the most effective butt exercises.


1. Single Leg Glute Bridge


* Lay on the floor with your feet flat and knees bent.

* Raise one leg off the ground, pulling the knee to your chest.

* Driving through the heel, extend your hip upward and raise your glutes off the ground.

* Extend as far as possible, pause and return to starting position.

If you’re a beginner, work your way up to 1 set of 10. Increase this up to 3 sets of 10. Those who are in the advanced stage can try 3 sets of 20 reps.


2. Hydrant with Leg Extension


* Get on all fours with your knees directly under your hips and your hands under your shoulders.

* Keeping your knee bent, lift your left leg up and out to the side as high as possible.

* Next, extend your leg straight back so it’s in line with your torso.

* Pause.

* Return to starting position.

* Repeat with the other leg.

This is 1 rep. Increase the number of sets and reps over time until you can complete 3 sets of 15 to 20 repetitions.

Reminder: Keep lower back as still as possible throughout the exercise.


3. Rainbows

* Start on all fours with knees shoulder width apart and hands right below shoulders.

* Use core muscles to keep back and spine in a neutral position with the torso tight.

* Straighten one leg out to the side at 45 degrees so the tips of your toes are touching the ground.

* Keeping core tight, lift your straight leg up and around in a rainbow arc behind you. Keep torso and abs tight the whole time.

* Touch toes on the other side behind you to complete the rainbow arc.

* Bring foot back in a rainbow arc to the starting position. That ‘s 1 rep on one side.

* Repeat on the other side.

Beginners can start with just 1 set of 10 per side. Build up to 3 sets of 10 per side.


4. Curtsy Lunges


* Start standing. Step your left leg behind you to the right so your thighs cross, bending both knees like you’re curtsying. Make sure your front knee aligns with your front ankle.
