    I know your butt is mainly genetics but I'm looking for specific glute workouts and/or supplements that can help?

    Thanks.

    This may sound stupid, but change whatever cardio you're doing to elliptical with a really high resistance/incline. If there's one thing that got my butt to get bigger, it's that. In no time my jeans got tighter even though my waist was getting smaller.

    I do 20 minutes on a stationary bicycle machine every day I work out.

    So, I wish I could tell you that this absolutely will work, but because my genetics give me a hefty booty and legs (in a good way) it might just be a product of that. But I certainly know that doing things like squats and lunges has made me feel like my butt's gotten tighter over the years. The other thing that would help, but that you'd have to get outside for, is hiking mountains. That works the glutes real good.

    Lunge squats are a must.
    Mother natures stairmaster......a good long hike up a very steep mountain taking large steps.
    Rollar blading/skating also make for a nice ass.

    Yes! I'm glad someone else is on board with that recommendation. And it's way more fun than spending a couple hours in the gym!

    Why would anyone want big glutes? I'm looking to get rid of mine. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get smaller glutes? Should I be doing really high rep glute exercises at the gym?

    If you want a big ass, squat heavy weights. Heck, if you want to be big and strong, squat heavy weights.

    strong ass comes from a strong back and strong legs.

    This all depends upon the composition of the glutes.

    If your booty is like one of these:



    Then the fail factor is high, and cut out the diet sodas and climb 50 flights of stairs every day you must.

    But if you got one of these:



    Then by all means keep up the good work.

    And better yet, PM me and we'll make whatever arrangements are needed for me to serve that fine ass what it needs.

    I always feel my glutes at the bottom portion of the lift on the incline leg press.

    My butt is like the guy from the 2nd vid's butt. I don't find butts like that attractive, but apparently a lot of people do. That guy is hot overall though.

    +1 to squats, lunges, and everything else that was mentioned.

    Genes play a role, but your glutes are a muscles that can be improved, just like all of your other muscles. Do exercises that focus on them. Change your routine every 4-6 weeks to challenge them in different ways.

    squats, walking lunges, leg press (especially alternating single leg). but be careful what you wish for. buying jeans sucks.

    at risk of sounding like a broken record, make sure your form and technique are spot-on when doing squats, lunges or whatever. don't round your back. don't let your knees go past your toes, go to 90 degrees or below, and make sure you're on your heels when pressing up, not your toes. When I started doing traveling lunges and really extending my forward leg, then going just below 90 degrees, my ass started screaming. Also, don't just do squats with shoulder-width stance. try an extra-wide stance for a few sets, then do sets with your feet touching for a closed-stance set.

    Ugh. This. So much. I always have to buy a size up just to fit jeans around my legs and booty, and then they're all loose and ill-fitting in the waist. :-/

    Took me forever to find the right fit. Everyone makes fun of me because I only buy American Eagle jeans.

    Any movement that requires full hip extension will build your gluts. In general, to build for size, stick to sets of 8-15 reps. Any more and you're training for endurance. Below that you're training for power. Step ups are great for gluts. Make sure to straighten your weight-bearing knee at the top of the rep.

    while you're sitting squeeze your cheeks together count for 10, then do 20 quick flexes and repeat until your ass aches.
    That alone will give you a pert (not muscular) bottom, if you do it before squats then you'll get more out of your workout since the muscles will already be fatigued.

    Once again if you want nice glutes, heavy squats. deadlifts.... and i mean heavy not lots of reps... lots of reps tones, heavy lifts makes it muscular, meaty and round.
