The glutes and legs are the strongest muscles in the human body and as a result, training them properly is essential. However, many people want to get significantly bigger glutes and this can be quite challenging. This article will look at a few tips, guidelines and workouts that will help you to achieve this goal.
When it comes to exercises, Body Comp Gym tells us that squats are one of the best exercises to work the glutes. There are many different types of squats and variations and you should always vary your squats for the best effect. If you only do one type of squat, then your glutes won’t be challenged in new ways, which means your glute and leg development will stall. So, you should do various types of squats in your routine such as the goblet squat, front squat, back squat, pulse squats, plyometric squats, etc. You should also use different types of weights such as body weight, barbell, dumbbells, kettlebells, etc.
Next, another fantastic exercise for the glutes and legs are lunges. This is a typical bodybuilding and fitness exercise, but it will help you to get a bigger butt. If you are unfamiliar with the exercise, it is best to start using only your bodyweight until you get accustomed to the movement. It is important that when you lunge that your knee doesn’t extend further than your toes and your stance should be as wide as it needs to be for you to remain balanced. Once you have mastered bodyweight lunges, you can move onto weighted ones using dumbbells.
Other fantastic workouts for the glutes and legs include the Bulgarian squat, leg press, barbell glute bridge, hip thrust, cable kickbacks, etc. These are all great exercises that you should do on your leg day and you should try to mix them up as much as you can. It is important that you progressively overload the muscle for it to grow. This means that you need to challenge it with heavier weights over time for it to get bigger. If you only do these exercises using one particular weight or low weights all the time, then your glutes won’t get stronger or larger.
In closing, these are just a few tips and guidelines on how to get bigger glutes and legs. If you’re not sure how to do the above exercises to properly work your glutes, then you should check out YouTube for tutorials or even hire a personal trainer. Consistency and patience are key, once you put in the work, you will get results.
