Building bigger glutes can be a goal for many people, and it’s no secret that having bigger glutes can be both aesthetically pleasing and beneficial for overall fitness. But how do you go about achieving a more toned, sculpted behind? Here are 5 ways to get bigger glutes:
Squats are one of the best exercises for building glute strength and size. They work all three muscles of the glutes (gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus) and are a compound exercise that also targets the quadriceps and hamstrings.
Similar to squats, deadlifts are a compound exercise that works the glutes, hamstrings, and lower back. Deadlifts are a great exercise for overall muscle development, but they specifically target the glutes and can help to build size and shape.
Lunges are an effective exercise to work the glutes, and they can be done with or without weights. Lunges, especially the ones that are done with weights and/or with a barbell, will put a lot of tension on the glutes muscles and help to build size.
Glute bridges are a great exercise for targeting the glutes, and they can be done with or without weights. They are relatively simple to perform and can be done at home or in the gym.
Step-ups are a great exercise for targeting the glutes, and they can also be done with or without weights. Step-ups are an effective exercise for building size and shape in the glutes and legs.
Building Bigger Glutes
In addition to these exercises, it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough protein in your diet to support muscle growth and recovery. And make sure you’re progressive in your exercise routine, meaning increasing the weight or reps as you get stronger. It’s also important to incorporate a variety of exercises to target different areas of the glutes and to avoid overtraining a single muscle group. Remember that results don’t happen overnight, consistency and patience is key to achieving your goal. If you’d like help with achieving this yourself, consider reaching out to professional personal trainers or for one-on-one personal training or online coaching to help you on your journey to building bigger glutes.
