    Barbell squats, stiff legged deadlifts, walking lunges, hack squats, and the dreaded stair climber machine.

    Lunges, they will give you a better looking butt than just squating, it depends on what u want lunges give a more rounded look... or squats if you want them to look more muscular..

    Do them without weights at first to warm up. If you think you can handle them, go up in increments of 5 until you fight a weight that you're comfortable with. Quality is more important than quality though, so keep it at a weight that you're able to do without falling over or being unbalanced.

    Is there also a genetic component? I'm sort of "average" back there and would like it to stick out a little more. I always thought I got the wrong gene pool traits for a bubble butt, and there was nothing I could really do to fix my borderline flat bum-bum. Myth or fact?

    Kickbacks are great...either knees bent or straight...Finding a right fitting pair of jeans doesn't hurt either!

    Squats, lunges, step ups, stiff-legged dead lifts.

    Achieving a gorgeous ass is quite literally a pain in the ass icon_biggrin.gif

    I have been complimented on my backside, and I tend to run, swim and do a LOT of bikeriding.

    Squats, lunges, swimming laps, running and stairs keep my ass in line. Nice getting props - even as I'm pushing 50 years old. (The guys on here whom I've seen or met who are past 50 btw, look better than most any guy half our age out on the street!)

    wide stance squats, wide leg presses, a variety of lunges, leg curls, butt blaster if you have one, donkey kickbacks & stairmaster.

    If you are competitive like me, and want a very effective and fun way to develop a nice "back yard" try picking up tennis. If you can find a decent partner you will be lunging, squating, and bending continously. When I play an intense match, my thighs and butt usually are the most sore afterwards, along with abs, shoulders, and arms. I get complimented quite a bit on my butt, and I attribute it to tennis mainly.

    Step ups are the best I've found with lunges second and leg presses/squats third.

    I find squats and leg presses tend to hit my quads and hams a lot more than my glutes.

    dmostwanted saidit depends on what u want lunges give a more rounded look... or squats if you want them to look more muscular..


    not true. muscle develops into different shapes depending on the person you are, not the exercise you perform.

    as for what exercises you should perform to attain the best-shaped butt you can attain: regular deadlifts and squats are where the money's at.

    Hi David,

    I run marathons and do 'butt' (leg work) every other day. I found that in order to get the butt you want, you do have to balance your leg workout a little so that you don't overtrain one side and undertrain another. So this is what I usually do:

    - start out with the leg press machine.
    - move on over to the incline leg press (the one you load weights on to)
    - usually after those two exercises I'm good to go for a few sets of squats. I use the regular squat rack; I hate the Smith Machine for squats.
    - after this I do what really hits your butt - the multi hip machine. Not many gyms have this anymore, but you stand up on the platform, and the cam & pad move 360 degrees - meaning you can set it just high enough that you put your leg up on it, and kick back. If you do it right, you kick back in a natural motion, squeeze your butt, keep your abs tight (stand up straight too) and you'll be a hurtin unit the next day. Six sets are good to work up to.
    - also a lot of people don't do these anymore, but I do: I do alternating sets on the leg curl and leg extension.
    - one little known detail for a great ass: inner and outer thigh (abductor and adductor machines). Most guys for some reason won't go near the 'girls machines' but if you do these regularly you will add shape to the sides of your rear - that dimple - just give it six months of training and you'll know what I'm talking about.

    The walking lunges are great also, but be careful of your knees, know your limits and start out SLOW. The other good machine is the glute/hamstring raise where you lean over into the machine and use your body weight to lift yourself up, squeezing your butt and hamstrings. Hope this helps, this should give you enough exercises to add some variety and get a good base going. I want to hear a report back by June to see how it's going!!
