Let’s face it, we’re all born with different body types and genetics. Some are naturally born with big, round glutes and others aren’t. Regardless of your circumstance the goal of this workout is to give you pure results so you can have the best looking and feeling butt.

You’ll notice that this workout combines weighted resistance training like Barbell Squats, Good Mornings and Leg Press, with more cardio and stretch intensive workouts like Box Jumps and Jumping lunges to give you a true stretch to help tone your glutes to get a fuller, rounder shape.

If you’re looking to simply tone and trim, your diet should consist of low carb, low fat, and high proteins as you want to run at a deficit. If you’re looking to build a bigger butt, do higher weights and pack in the calories. We also recommend supplementing this working with a few stairmaster or incline treadmill sessions per week to really help you trim that last layer of jiggle.

Barbell Squats

4 sets of 10 reps

  1. Start with the barbell supported on top of your traps. Your chest should be up and the head facing forward. Maintain a hip-width stance with the feet turned out as needed.
  2. Descend by flexing your knees, refraining from moving the hips back as much as possible. This requires that the knees travel forward. Ensure that they stay align with the feet. The goal is to keep the torso as upright as possible.
  3. Continue all the way down while keeping the weight on the front of the heel. When the upper legs contact the lower legs, reverse the motion, driving the weight upward.

Jumping Lunges

3 sets of 12 reps

Jumping Squats are similar to regular squats but they include a jump that will help with building explosiveness.

  1. Start by standing with your feet about shoulder width apart and your arms crossed on your chest. Keep your head up and your back straight.
  2. Now slowly come down as if to do a squat. At the bottom of the squat explode upwards into a jump using mainly your heels. You’ll want to jump as high as possible.
  3. As you’re coming back down be sure to absorb the landing in the balls of your feet as you come back down into squat position to repeat the motion.
Exercise no. 5

Good Mornings

3 sets of 12 reps

  1. Find a rack with a straight bar and load the desired amount of weight to each side. The bar should be resting on a rack that’s slightly below your shoulders’ height.
  2. Approach the bar and rest the bar on your upper back or rear of your shoulders. While gripping either side of the bar with your hands for support, gently lift the bar off the rack with your body and take a few steps back.
  3. For this exercise it’s important you keep your back straight and tight and your knees slightly bent. Now bend your body forward from your hips, going as low as you can without compromising your form. Your back should be slightly arched, but tight. Be sure your legs are firmly planted and you don’t have the urge to fall forward.
  4. Pause at the bottom of this rep before slowly bring your torso back up to the starting position.
  5. Repeat for the desired amount of reps.
