9 Amazing Butt Moves That Beat Squats and Bodybuilding
Everyone knows that basic squats can make your booty B-U-R-N. The problem: No matter how many reps you crank out, this move will only work your glutes from one angle. To achieve the best possible results in the least amount of time, you’re better off mixing things up. For instance, there are countless squat variations and alternatives that, when performed together, could put the basic squat out of business. (You’re welcome.)
If you’re ready to, ahem, round out your glute routine, try these butt moves designed by Chelsea Dornan, a NYC-based personal trainer, and modeled by Brittany Perille Yobe, a certified personal trainer who’s racked up an Instagram following of more than 1 million people, thanks to the butt-centric workouts she posts.
To work toward a butt like Brittany’s, repeat each exercise below for 45 seconds to one minute on each side in the order listed, and repeat the entire set up to three times to seriously feel the burn.
1. Single-Leg Glute Bridge
How to do it: Lie on your back with your knees bent and soles of your feet on the floor. Extend one leg. On your exhale, squeeze your glutes, and push your hips up 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.
