9 Non-Boring Butt Exercises Damn Squats All the Time

 

We all know and love the basic squat. Although it’s a legit way to work that back, this move alone won’t get you to your dream butt, says Brittany Perille Yobe, a certified personal trainer who posts peach-centric workouts and gravity-defying belfies for her 1.2 million followers.

“Of course, squats engage the glutes,” Perille Yobe told Cosmopolitan. “But compound movements such as squats and lunges train more of the quads, lower back, and hamstrings, so they won’t automatically result in greater glutes.”

To achieve your best possible butt, you’re better off mixing things up. “I train…with about 10 different glute exercises that isolate the muscles by working them from various angles,” says Perille Yobe.

Lie on your back with your knees bent and the soles of your feet on the floor. Extend one leg. On your exhale, squeeze your glutes and push your hips toward the ceiling as high as you can. Pause, then lower until your butt hovers right above the floor, and repeat without touching the ground to complete one rep.

Begin on all fours with your knees hip-width apart and your wrists stacked over your shoulders. With a pointed toe, extend your right leg and reach the foot toward the ceiling. Slowly lower your leg to tap the floor. Squeeze your glutes as you lift your leg back to starting position, then lower your leg to tap the floor about a foot to the left of your kneeling foot. Return to starting position to complete the rep.
