Building a butt is not easy although it is very desired by most. Although a rounder, firm, and toned butt look better, stronger glutes are really important to have health-wise as well. A stronger booty will help your posture, reduce the risk of dormant butt syndrome, and help you with lower back pain. Strong glutes help your athletic performance by giving you stability and endurance to your joint. They are basically a complementary system to a healthy bone structure.
There are countless home workouts for a bigger butt and stronger glutes but these three are special. Not only are they the most effective exercises but you can also perform them while you’re at home as they are bodyweight workouts.
Make sure you warm up your glutes with butt kicks, high knees, glute bridges, and plank walkouts before you get started and cool them off with stretches after you’re done.
