Want round, shapely glutes and a firm, lifted booty? Forget the cardio and glute machines at your gym. Instead, focus on the basics: The barbell squat, the barbell lunge, and the deadlift.
Why? Your glutes are the biggest and strongest muscles in your body, and these three moves allow you to really challenge your butt, build muscle and give you the shape you’ve always wanted.
Complete three sets of each exercise below, with 10 reps per move. The key here is intensity. Nothing lifts and firms the glutes like lifting heavy, so pick your weights wisely. You’ll want to stay in an 8 to 10-rep range, and you should be lifting enough weight that your form is threatened on the last two reps. This means you’re struggling, your legs are shaking, you might let out a grunt or two, and you aren’t sure you’ll be able to make those last two reps every. single. set.
