There’s no two ways about it. If you want a great butt, squats are the way to go! The squat is a full compound exercise that works primarily the muscles of the glutes, thighs, hips and core (especially lower back). It also burns more calories than just about any other single movement making it a great way of toning and burning fat.

Step 1
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your knees centred over your feet.

Step 2
Begin the movement by slowly bending your knees and ankles by pushing your hips back. Continue until you have squatted a portion of the way down, but are above parallel.

Step 4
Reverse the motion until you return to the starting position.

Don’t sink further than 90 degrees as this puts strain on your knees.
