‘5 Exercises For Bigger Glutes That Work Better Than Squats’ – Monica May
Today we’re diving into the best exercises for bigger glutes, that are so much better than squats.
Booty muscles are so hard to target and engage, mainly because whenever doing booty exercises our legs are most likely to take over.
But, not with these exercises!
These exercises have helped me build a stronger and bigger booty.
I’m showing you how to do the right and why they are so effective.
We’re targeting the booty like never before!
Let’s get started right away!
Psssst… every body change starts with a healthy diet, so make sure to check out my MEAL PLAN!
5 Exercises For Bigger Glutes That Work Better Than Squats
#1 Sumo Squats
Sumo squats are the best squat variation for your glutes.
They target the glutes, however, you will have to make sure to squeeze your glute muscles at the end of each rep.
Also, keep your chest up and back straight.
You can do this exercise with a kettlebell, or a dumbbell.
#2 Hip Thrust
Hip thrust is another exercise that targets the glutes so much better than squats.
However, when performing this exercise, it’s crucial to add weight.
I think a barbell works even better than a kettlebell, but you can work with whatever you have.
What you should do is lie on your back with your arms by your sides, your knees bent and your feet planted on the ground.
As you press through your heels, squeeze your glutes and drive your hips up so you form a straight line from your knees to your shoulders.
Hold for a second at the top of the move, then lower slowly.
#3 Banded Deadlifts
Deadlifts in general are a great way to target your glutes.
However, when you add a band around your calves, you are challenging your side booty too.
What you should do to keep a nice form is sit your hips back, bend your knees slightly, and lean your torso forward, maintaining a tight core and flat back.
Once you touch the floor, go up to the beginning position.
Squeeze your glutes to finish the rep, before going for another one.
#4 Curtsy Lunges
Lunges are also great for building bigger booty muscles.
However, while most lunges will engage mainly the quadriceps, this variation of curtsy lunges will target the glutes.
Bend your knees and lower your hips until your left thigh is nearly parallel to the floor.
Keep your torso upright and your hips and shoulders as square as possible to the wall in front of you. Return to start. Then repeat on the other side.
#5 Weighted Donkey Kick
Donkey kicks are great for activating and building those glute muscles.
However, again, you’ll have to add a little bit of weight or resistance in order for them to work best.
In this instance, I’ve added a booty band, however, a dumbbell behind your knee will work even better.
Just make sure to balance it right, and keep the form: neutral spine, back straight chest out.
Squeeze your glutes to finish the rep.
Now it’s your turn!
