1.  Hip Thrusts

By far the most popular so far, although it might seem daunting and effort loading the bar but it will all be worth it in the end. Not all gyms have an easy set up for hip thrusts. Therefore:

  • Begin by sitting on the floor resting on a secured bench that’s either built in or against a wall.
  • Keep your legs parallel and wide in line with your shoulders, for comfort add a matt or foam around the bar.
  • Ensure your form is right, heels pushed into the ground and push with your pelvis upward and squeezing your glutes.
  • Aim for 8-10 reps of 2-3 sets.

This exercise exclusively targets your glutes and will have your booty looking bigger and better in no time.

2.  Bulgarian split squat

This single-leg exercise does not only help build a stronger bum but also improves your balance. Here’s how to get your form right every time:

  • Facing away, step 2 feet away from a step, or a chair that meets the middle of your leg.
  • Place on foot on the chair and find your balance
  • Begin to bend your knee as low as you can go and slowly push yourself back up
  • Aim for 8-10 reps of 2-3 sets.

3.  Reverse deficit lunges

Because you’re in a deficit you’re putting more weight and greater stretch on your glutes, this does more for your booty than the standard reverse lunge.

  • Stand with feet shoulder width apart.
  • Step on a plate or step.
  • Reverse step and aim to bend the knee at a 90 degree angle.
  • Drive back up through the heel.
  • Aim for 8-10 reps of 2-3 sets.

4.  Step ups

The exercise you weren’t expecting but can be a complete game changer.

  • Stand 2 feet away from a secure box, bench or step.
  • Place your foot on top pushing with your heels while your hips, knees, and ankles are at a 90 degree angle.
  • As you push up don’t forget to lift your leg and squeeze those glutes.
  • Slowly come down and repeat.
  •  Aim for 8-10 reps of 2-3 sets.

5.  Dumbbell Deadlifts

Lastly, when the form is perfect these exercises can be extremely effective for your glutes.

  • Stand with your feet feet width apart with a dumbbell in each hand while standing up straight.
  • With a slight bend push your bum back while lowering the weights.
  • Slowly rise back up and repeat.
  • Aim for 8-10 reps of 2-3 sets.

When all these exercises are performed correctly you will be getting the most out of your workouts and don’t be afraid to ask for advice from the gym community everyone has to start somewhere.
