5 Butt Exercises that are better than Squats
It’s all about butt, buns, or booty, no matter what you call them we all want our butts to be as firm, and tight as possible. Who doesn’t want a backside that turns heads. However, this is the spot where women tend to hold the most body fat for the longest time.
You can do cardio until you pass out, but you won’t build a great bum unless you focus on that lower half of your body, the Gluteal is a big muscle.
Besides looking great, glutes are really important in stabilizing the pelvis preventing low back injury and adding a lot of power to your squat and other motions that involved the lower-body. A lot of people that sit down all day their glutes are going to be shut off, under active and weak, and their hamstrings are going to be too strong and dominant.
In this article we’ll show you the shorter route to a firm booty consisting of 5 great butt moves with far superior results than the plain old squat!
1. Single-Leg Deadlift With Kettlebell
Take a 20-pound kettlebell in your left hand and stand on your left leg, keeping the other one slightly off the ground. Keeping your back straight and the left knee slightly bent, lean your upper body forward while extending your free leg behind you for better balance. Lower the kettlebell as close to the ground as possible, then return to the starting position and perform the movement with the kettlebell in your right hand and the left leg off the ground. Perform 3 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
