Everyone wants a better butt, whether to show it off in a bikini, daisy dukes, or skinny jeans! Are you happy with your “donk” right now? If not, we are about to give you 7 fabulous new ways to give yourself a butt lift.
Take it from us, these squats will work your butt muscles better than any amount of cardio! You shouldn’t be doing the same type of squats every time you workout. These 6 types of squats were chosen because they range from easy to difficult and can be either modified for beginners, or performed with a heavier weight to make them more difficult. Try out our 7 Types of Squats for a Better Butt to start seeing changes!
1. Body Weight Squats
This is just a regular squat with zero exercise equipment. There are no dumbbells, barbells, or kettle-bells involved. Just get into basic squat form, feet hip width apart, feet slightly pointed out, squat down to where your knees reach a 90 degree angle and then try to maintain the weight through your heels as you push yourself back up to start. Remember to not lean forward and to maintain a flat back throughout the exercise.
2. Plie Squats
In this squat your feet need to be wider than hip width apart with feet angled significantly outward. Same rules of a regular squat apply to this one. Be sure to keep your back in line, and you are going to bend your knees more outward than straight. This is going to target your inner thighs significantly. If you need to make it more difficult, grab some weights or a kettle-bell!
