Too many of us spend all day sitting on them, and believe that general lower body exercises will take care of the backside. Even worse, the proliferation of butt-heavy training trends on social media might scare some guys off from giving their glutes their due. But it's not just Instagram belfie models who can benefit from some hyper-concentrated glute work. The muscles contract to move your hips in every direction, powering you up, down, forward, backward, and side-to-side. And since they're big, working them can increase your metabolic rate.
Butt Building—Fixing Your Flat Butt!
The 25 Best Butt Workout Moves - Top Exercises for Glutes
A nice butt is one of the most coveted physical features and it can improve the way you look, which may boost your confidence. If you want to improve the look of your backside, do some special exercises to target your butt, include cardiovascular exercise that will burn calories and tone your backside, and adjust your diet to ensure that you are getting the right amount of calories and protein. To get a nice butt, try exercises like squats, lunges, and bridge lifts to tone the glutes and hamstrings. If possible, try doing 3 sets of each exercise for 45 to 60 seconds per set. Additionally, aim for minutes of cardio each week, such as walking uphill or using an elliptical machine to further tone and shape your backside. Along with exercise, make sure to get plenty of lean, muscle-building protein through foods like skinless chicken, tuna, and low-fat cottage cheese.
