Want to get a firmer, rounder butt? It’s a actually pretty simple: all you need to do is dedicate the time and use the right movements. Our 12-Minute Squat Challenge to Get a Firm, Round Butt will lift, shape, and tighten your glutes to get you a perfect rounded bottom.
Since your glutes are the largest muscle in the body, you need resistance to build them. This means heavy dumbbells that force you to push the muscles harder during each squat, push, or lunge. This 12-minute squat challenge offers four unique workouts that get the job done. Squats are a standard for booty building, and by using a variety of squats you’ll hit the glute muscles from various angles.
Two of the exercises in this routine require the use of dumbbells to create resistance. The other two exercises are body-weight movements that allow you to isolate and focus on toning and building. Although the resistance won’t be there, continuing to work activated muscle groups gives you the benefit of toning and building, and allows you to push a little harder. Get your legs and butt loose and ready for 12 minutes of booty building.
