Strengthen and Sculpt Your Butt With These 11 Trainer-Approved Exercises

PopSugar Logo By Tamara Pridgett of PopSugar | Slide 1 of 12: When it comes to training, I believe in taking a full-body approach. What I mean by this is that you should train every muscle group, focus on proper movement patterns, and strengthen any imbalances you may have. Depending on your goals, you may spend more on a specific style of training. For example, a sprinter will more than likely do more strength and explosive lifting sessions along with track workouts, whereas a swimmer may focus more on their cardiovascular endurance with weights dispersed throughout their program.
I could spend all day talking about my theories on training, but that's not what you're here for. You're here because you want to find out what moves you should be doing to get a stronger, fuller butt. Ahead are a handful of my favorite moves that will work your booty and various muscle groups in your legs. As I stated earlier, take a 360 approach and train your entire body, not just your booty. This is 100 percent not a workout, so don't do all these moves in one session. That would feel pretty bad. Instead, choose two to four different moves (don't just do all deadlifts or all lunges), and add them to your lower-body and/or total-body workouts.
Also, I'm not a registered dietitian, but if you're trying to build muscle (that's how you get a bigger butt), you've got to make sure you're eating enough food. Here's what a registered dietitian says you should be eating to build muscle.  You'll also want to get enough sleep; seven to nine hours a night is optimal. Now, without further ado, the exercises you should be doing for a firm and strong butt.
